Pixel 8 Series Launch Date: Following Apple's recent announcement of the iPhone 15 launch date on September 12, Google has now revealed the launch date for its flagship Pixel 8 series.
The Pixel 8 series is scheduled to be unveiled on October 4, making it a closely timed release in the world of smartphones.
The Pixel 8 launch event will take place in New York, USA, and it will be a physical event, with the company's CEO, Sundar Pichai, expected to be in attendance.
Alongside the Pixel 8, Google is expected to launch the Pixel Smartwatch. Additionally, the company might unveil new versions of its Pixel Buds, including the Pixel Buds A series and Pixel Buds Pro.
With the Pixel 8 set to arrive shortly after the iPhone 15, it seems that Google is gearing up to challenge Apple in the smartphone market.
However, it's unclear whether Google will introduce other hardware products at this event, as the company typically launches a range of devices, including Fitbit and Nest devices, at its hardware events.
Recently, the company also introduced a foldable smartphone, though it's not yet available in India.
In terms of design, the Pixel 8 series is expected to closely resemble the Pixel 7 series. On the hardware front, Google is introducing a new version of its Tensor chipset, and there will be updates to the camera system.
While the base model is likely to retain the previous camera lens, the Pro model could come with a new camera sensor.
Pixel smartphones are renowned for their exceptional camera quality, so those looking for top-notch camera performance are likely to be excited about the upcoming release.
So, we'll have to wait a few more weeks for the unveiling of the Pixel 8 series, and then we can compare it to the iPhone 15 series.
