After what seems like an endless wait, the Google Pixel 7 event will finally introduce us to the latest (and best) Google smartphones, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
These two flagship phones were first teased at Google IO 2022 in May, then hidden again until today (Thursday, Oct 6), a five-month break that only heightened anticipation ahead of launch. And there’s more – because today’s event will also see the debut of the Pixel Watch, a device that’s been rumored for literally years and that we’ll finally get to know in all its glory.
And of course we could also get other new devices; Google isn’t against releasing its own ‘just one more thing’ revelations from time to time.
The good news is that you can follow everything live with us right here. The event is set to start at 3pm BST / 10am ET / 7am PT today in the UK and US, and 1am AEDT on Friday in Australia, and we have a separate guide on how to watch the Google Pixel 7 launch. Google retention page for YouTube live feed below, so you can watch it here.
So read on for all the last-minute rumors in the run-up to launch and follow us live as it happens.
Google Pixel 7 event — what to expect
Google Pixel 7
The Pixel 7 doesn’t appear to be a major departure from the Pixel 6, but it will have some updates. Google has already confirmed that it will run on a new Tensor G2 chipset, for example, while a new aluminum design and colors will also update things.
Google Pixel 7Pro
The Pixel 7 Pro will likely have a few more changes than the standard model, including, if the rumors are correct, an increase in optical zoom from 4x to 5x, as well as a new Macro Focus mode. Of course, it will also have the Tensor G2 and the visual redesign.
Google Pixel Watch
We already know that the Pixel Watch will run Wear OS and it will be for Android phones only, and we also know that its fitness technology will be powered by Fitbit. And of course we know exactly what it will look like, because Google has already revealed its sleek, curvy shape.
