Google this morning announced that it will be hosting its Pixel hardware event on Thursday, October 6.
Google already teased the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch, at I/O 2022 in May. This upcoming event will fully detail those products, features, pricing, and availability. There’s a “It’s all coming together this fall” tagline that emphasizes the ecosystem of products.
There will be a livestream on October 6 at 10 am ET for those online, while the company is hosting an in-person event in Brooklyn. This is Made by Google’s first physical presence after two years of virtual announcements in 2020 (Launch Night In) and 2021 (Pixel Fall Event).

A teaser video for the October 6 event cycles through the upcoming flagship phones, wearables, and — curiously — Pixel Buds Pro. You can sign-up for reminders here.
We already have a good idea of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro hardware, but — as always — it comes down to what new, AI-backed software features Google has built for the phones.
There’s an interesting new look at the Pixel 7 Pro in the aforementioned video. Head-on, the cameras are quite prominent with the telephoto very much noticeable within the circular lens, while there’s a ring around the middle ultrawide.
Meanwhile, Google has not really shown off Wear OS 3 for the Pixel Watch. It will certainly be more “stock” than Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5, with the Montblanc Summit 3 providing a better idea of the UI, and could just be what’s available in the emulator. We also haven’t seen what cross-device features will bridge the wearable and phone experience.
It remains to be seen whether Google will announce any other hardware at the event. In terms of non-Pixel devices, a new Nest Wifi with 6E and “Chromecast HD” are expected.
