Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be unveiled on Oct. 19, a new report suggests. The two phones were made official last month and a Google executive showed off their design along with some of the specs. At the time, Google had said that the Pixel 6 series would be released later this year and now it looks like we have a date for Google’s launch event. In addition, an alleged leak from the retailer suggests support for 23W wireless charging for the Pixel 6.
The upcoming Pixel phones, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, will bring a big change to the Pixel lineup, which has undoubtedly become quite obsolete in recent iterations. Google completely redesigned the Pixel 6 series and also decided to go Apple’s way and use its own SoC, called Tensor. Although the search giant has yet to release a release date, a report by well-known leaker Jon Prosser via its Front Page Tech website says Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available for order on 19 February October and will reach customers, as well as stores, on October 28th.
While the date of Google’s launch event isn’t clear, Prosser points out that since pre-orders start on October 19, this may be when the company hosts the ‘MadeByGoogle’ event.
Recently, an insider from China mentioned that the Pixel 6 series will be released on September 13th, the day before Apple’s supposed launch event. Prosser claims that the September 13 release date is incorrect and that it will actually arrive about a month later.
Also, a supposed list of wireless charging support for a Google Pixel device suggested 23W wireless charging support, shared by Android Police. This is said to be for the Pixel 6. As of now, it’s not clear whether the Pro variant will also support fast wireless charging of 23W or something even faster. Last month, it was reported that both models will feature 33W wired fast charging, which isn’t as impressive as seen on some other top phones, but is definitely an improvement over previous Pixel phones.
