Rumors have been floating around on social media that the much-awaited Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will launch on Sep 13th a day before Apple's iPhone 13 event. But Jon Prosser, the exclusive specialist with a great track record at Front Page Tech seems to have laid such claims to rest.
The rumors of Sep 13th launch were spearheaded by Bald Panda's Weibo account which has a questionable track record and other media sources picked the wind of it and the whole thing caught fire.
Jon Prosser unsure of this dug into his sources and is claiming with confidence that the Pixel will be up for pre-order on Tuesday, October 19th, and will officially launch and be available to the masses on October 28th. He also anticipates #MadeByGoogle event to fall on the pre-order day. Google confirmed Prosser's previous leak from months ago and hence there is an air of truth to his claims.
It should be noted that Google is known for pushing back phone launches and with the semi-conductor shortage, you shouldn't be surprised if the launch is delayed.
The Pixel 6 series will be the very first smartphones to be powered by Google's in-house designed Tensor System on Chip (SoC). Both Pro and standard models will have three unique color schemes to choose from. The Pro will feature three cameras while the standard model will have only two. More specifications are yet to be confirmed officially though it is likely to be along these lines.
With Pixel 6 launch around, we might get to see attractive pricing on the Pixel 5.Buy from Amazon
