Google has announced the release date of its next Pixel smartphone, likely to be called the Google Pixel 6, which is expected to give a tough competition to the recently announced iPhone 13.
Google will host a Pixel event on October 19th at 6pm BST, a spokesperson said, with both a normal and a “Pro” version to be unveiled.
“The program will be broadcast on various platforms and will also be available for re-watching in the coming weeks,” the spokesperson said.
The tech giant first pointed to the new handset in August, when it said the phone’s new design would redefine “what it means to be a pixel”.
The company shared details about a new system for the chip, which has been built specifically for Pixel phones and has taken years to develop.
The “Tensor” chip houses a variety of machine learning and artificial intelligence tools that will “unlock unique experiences for our Pixel users” rather than just adding more computing power.
“This helps make the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro the fastest, smartest and safest Pixel phones ever,” said Google Website.
As well as its own chip, the new Google Pixel will also run on the company’s own Android mobile operating system, allowing the firm to offer customers a similar in-house experience offered by Apple’s iPhone.
The similarities have consistently drawn comparisons between the two rivals, with commentators often referring to the Pixel range of devices as the “iPhone killer”.
Like Apple, Google is also set to drop the phone charger out of the box for the Pixel 6, which is set to become an industry standard. Two major phone makers, Apple and Samsung, have cited the need to cut e-waste to justify their decision, claiming that it is the equivalent of taking 500,000 cars off the road every year.
