Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are expected to be released on September 13th

Google’s next Pixel 6 smartphone line is expected to launch in the fall, although the company has yet to disclose an exact date. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro models will be part of the Pixel 6 series, which will have a dual-tone design with a camera strip running across the back panel containing various sensors. The Google Tensor SoC is confirmed to power the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

A likely launch date for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro has been disclosed by Chinese tipster Bald Panda (translated). According to the source, the two Google phones could be unveiled on September 13th, a day before the rumoured Apple presentation. In an official capacity, Google has made no announcement concerning the debut date. When the product is released, pricing and availability will be published. 

September appears to be jam-packed with major product launches, not just from Apple and Google, but also from Xiaomi and Huawei. According to the tipster, Xiaomi will launch the Mi 11T series on September 15 and Huawei will hold a press conference on September 29.

Google officially announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro earlier this month, indicating that the two phones will be powered by Tensor, the company’s own bespoke SoC. Recently, Google also launched the Pixel 5a, the successor to last year’s budget Android device, the Pixel 4a.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will have the same overall design, with the exception of the screen size, camera lenses, and a few features. The dual-tone design with a camera bar on the back panel is still present in the Pixel 6 series which looks like it is inspired by the Pixel 2. The Pro version has a polished aluminium frame, whilst the non-Pro version has a matte aluminium frame. The Pixel 6 will have a dual-camera arrangement on the back, while the Pixel 6 Pro will have a triple-camera setup on the back. The Pixel 6 series will run Android 12 with a Material You design.
