Google has announced the release dates for its next top-of-the-line phone series, the Pixel Watch, and the Pixel Buds Pro. Google’s I/O conference in May gave a sneak peek at the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Now, the official release date has been announced.
Google will show the world its new phones on October 6 at 7 pm PKT. The search engine giant has also confirmed the name of its next-generation SoC, which will power Pixel 7 devices. Most reports said it would be called the Tensor 2, but it will be called the Tensor G2. The G could be “Google” or a short form of “gen 2,” or it could be both.
We also know what the Google Pixel 7 will look like because of the company’s teasers from a few months ago. The Pixel phones keep the familiar design of the camera visor, but this time each lens has its own cutout. The rest of the phone is mostly the same, but the space around the screen is a little bit smaller than it used to be.
Google has also confirmed the colours that the Pixel 7 phones will come in. The Pixel 7 will come in Obsidian, Lemongrass, and Snow colours, but the Pixel 7 Pro will only be available in Hazel.
It's all coming together.
Join us live for #MadeByGoogle on October 6th at 10am ET.

We don’t know much about the Pixel 7’s specs besides the fact that it has a second-generation Tensor chipset. According to rumours, the Pixel 7 will have a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide lens, but the Pixel 7 Pro will also have a 48MP telephoto lens.
The Pixel 7 is expected to be a little bit smaller than the Pixel 6 at 6.3 inches (down from 6.4 inches), but the Pixel 7 Pro will be the same size as its predecessor. The phones may also use a different display panel, but the resolution and adaptive refresh rate are likely to stay the same.
