As Apple launches the iPhone 14, Google is reminding everyone that the Pixel 7 is coming soon


Google has announced that the Pixel 7 will launch on October 6. And, unlike the iPhone 14, it’s powered by an all-new chip.

Not wanting to put Apple in the spotlight with the launch of the iPhone 14 and other devices, Google has reminded everyone that it has its own products on the way.

The company has announced its fall hardware event will take place on October 6 – with a full month’s notice – and has also given us a brief glimpse of its first smartwatch, the Pixel Watch.

Pixel 7 is coming

Google chose the day before Apple’s event to announce the date of its own “Made By Google” launch. It takes place on Thursday, October 6 at 10 a.m. ET. It brings the official unveiling of the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro and the Pixel Watch.

Since launches are usually announced only one or two weeks in advance, it was probably no coincidence that the date was announced a day before Apple’s “Far Out” event.

Nor was there any confirmation that the Pixel phones will be powered by a brand new chip, Tensor G2, the second generation of Google’s own internal processor. The iPhone 14 will use the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13.

The Pixel 6 was Google’s best-selling phone ever, and the company hopes the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro can build on that success. The new processor and refreshed design already contrasts with the iPhone 14, which reused many features from last year’s models in what seems like a very modest upgrade.
