With Apple’s iPhone 13, Samsung Galaxy S21 and the OnePlus 9 already on the market, everyone’s attention is turning to the Google Pixel 6 series. Google is reportedly holding an event in October to announce the highly anticipated Android device. Mishaal Rahman of – was quick enough to discover a now-deleted CNET article that spoke of Google’s next event on October 5th. However, the company has no plans to launch Pixel 6 on October 5th as the event will focus on Nest, travel and map products, Rahman said.
According to the CNET article, Google will be announcing new smart speakers and security devices on October 5th, and we may also hear about the changes to Google Maps and Google Flights. The news article makes it clear that the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are not on the agenda of the October 5th event.
Interestingly, Rahman also spotted a snippet of code suggesting that the Google Pixel 6 will go on sale on October 27th. A change to the Google camera code suggested the sale date. He says that “a launch on 10/19. followed by a publication on October 27th. seems plausible. “
On my other Pixel smartphones, the release_date string is empty.
Apparently, Google really wants to get users to update to a new version of GCam that they will release on the day the Pixel 6 series is released. And if that’s correct, the release date is October 27th.
