Il 6 October 2022 Google will keep her new evento Pixel, where it will present a new generation of smartphones and the company’s first smartwatch. What do we expect from these devices? And could other surprise products arrive? Here’s what might be waiting for us at the Google event.

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch: what we expect from the event on 6 October

Google will hold its new launch event on 6 October 2022 at 10 am local time in his store of Williamsburg in New York City. However, from Italy we could follow the event on YouTube from 4pm (Italian time). The event Made By Google will see several products presented.

And the most interesting thing is that we already know many details about many.

Pixel 7 e Pixel 7 Pro

The protagonists of the event will undoubtedly be the two new smartphones that Google announced at the beginning of this summer at Google I / O 2022. From the first images, we could see that the devices update (but not revolutionize) the Pixel 6 line. The design maintains the horizontal band, which however becomes more refined than in the past. But we expect many specifications to remain unchanged.

The most significant change should concern the chip, which should be the new Tensor G2. The rumors want him to have a setup Armv9 consisting of Cortex-X2, Cortex-A710, Cortex-A510 cores, with Mali-G710 GPU. But there are still no certainties about this data: we only know that voice recognition and camera and media management should improve. The improvements in terms of pure performance are less pronounced.

The base model should have 8GB in RAMwhile the Pro model will have 12GB in RAM: both will have 128 or 256GB denominations. Screen from 6.3 inches and 90Hz for the base in Full HD, while the Pro model should reach 6.7 inches QHD + with 120Hz refresh rate.

The main sensor of both should be from 50MP Isocell GN1 and a 12MP Sony IMX381 wide angle lensbut only the Pro should have a telephoto and 48MPprobably a Samsung GM1. Unchanged the sensor for selfie da 10,8MP.

The price for the Pixel 7 should be $ 599, like the predecessor (which in Italy has reached 649 euro). Pixel 7 Pro will cost $ 899 instead, 899 euro in Italy.

Pixel Watch: the first Google smartwatch at the event on 6 October

Another guaranteed appointment at the event on 6 October is the one with the Pixel Watch, the first smartwatch from Google. The Mountain View company has already shown the renders of the device, but little else. However, a prototype found in a restaurant gives some idea of ​​what to expect.

It should have the sensor for heart rate, blood oxygen level and also a ECG monitoring (like the one on Fitbit Charge 5, a company owned by Google). Also, given how much Google has invested in the sleep monitoring, we expect interesting news in this area. And then the tracking of a hundred different sports that we now expect from products of this type.

The chip should be a chip Samsung Exynos 9110 with 2GB of RAM and 32GB memory for apps (and perhaps music). This should enable some features we expect from the Google Watch such as payment with Google Wallet and especially exclusive features with Google Assistant.

The price should be around 350 dollars, putting it in direct competition with the Apple Watch. But to understand if it will hold up the comparison, we will have to wait to review it.

Nest news and possible surprise announcements

Google Nest WiFi Pro

Google has announced that there will also be news for the product line at the event smart home Nest. But at the moment it is not clear which products could arrive. Many leakers bet on products for the WiFi Mesh (and Google Assisstant built in), while others think of audio-only products like Nest Mini e Nest Audio. It could all be minor updates, but also wanted to respond to Amazon’s recent product refresh with the Echo line. But we don’t rule out some new models coming soon.

As for the surprises, we know that Pixel Tablet it should arrive next year, but maybe Google wants to give us another taste. And along the same lines he could perhaps reveal his first smartphone pieghevole, even just in a sneak peek. But we wouldn’t bet on it.

The new ones Google Pixel 7 e 7 Prowith Pixel Watch will be the protagonists of the event on 6 October. Which will be interesting to follow not only for any surprises, but also to find out what software innovations it brings to your smartphones and Google Assistant. We will keep you posted.
