Google to launch Pixel 6 series on October 19


Google has finally announced the release date of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro two months after it first teased the Tensor-powered smartphones.

As seen on its new spiffy website which, by the way, comes complete with lounge beats, the “Pixel Fall Launch” is happening at 10 a.m. Pacific time or 1 a.m. Philippine time on Tuesday, October 19.

Speed previously reported that the upcoming devices will run on Google’s new Tensor processor, which will improve the camera, speech recognition, and many other features.

XDA Developers also recently published a lengthy piece specifying the upgrades Google is developing for the devices’ cameras, which the portal extracted from the “internal version of the Google camera app.”

These new features include two predefined zoom levels of 0.7X and 1.0X, support for using a Bluetooth microphone during video recording, as well as tools identified as “magic eraser,” “face deblur,” “baby mode” that recognizes babies in the frame and automatically takes photos of them, and “motion blur” that creatively adds blur effects to your shots.

“Pixel Fall Launch” will then give the California giant one full hour to showcase (or confirm) all that. This is, of course, aside from revealing the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro’s prices.

The event is a “pre-recorded livestream” and can be viewed on the Pixel Fall Launch website and YouTube.
