The Pixel 7 series of smartphones has already been officially announced at Google I/O this spring, despite the fact that we don’t know much detail about them. To prevent leaks, Google preferred to confirm the existence of these models as well as their design, but did not provide an official release date for them. According to Front Page Tech, the launch event isn’t too far away, being set in the “usual” timeframe for devices in this series.
Pixel 7 launch could take place in the “usual” period
The Front Page Tech website quotes industry sources in a new article revealing the possible release date for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. The phones would go up for pre-order on October 6, while shipments would begin on October 13. Incidentally, on the 6th, Google would hold its official launch event, where all the details about the new phones, such as hardware features and official pricing, will be announced.
In the past, Front Page Tech has revealed multiple pieces of information about Google’s unreleased devices officially. The publication was one of the first to provide the official design for the Pixel 6, many months before Google’s announcement, as well as the Pixel Watch design, which we saw on Jon Prosser’s YouTube show as recently as a year and a half ago.
Given that information about the Pixel 7 isn’t exactly “secret”, and FPT sources have provided verifiable information in the past, there’s little chance that it won’t be confirmed as well. Of course, company plans can change for various reasons, but at least at this point, Google seems to be gearing up for a launch in the first week of October.
Most likely, these devices will also be the first to launch with Android 13 pre-installed from the factory.
