Google Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2 launch event set for October 4

[ad_1]

Google has announced its Pixel hardware event for October 4th where it is expected to introduce the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2. This comes hours after the Pixel 8 image showed up on the Google Store accidentally. The company has posted a new #BestPhonesForever: Spa Day video.

It is not clear if we can expect new devices in the Nest smart home portfolio, since the invite only mentions the Pixel portfolio.

Usually, Google teases its new Pixel devices at the I/O in May, but this time the company has not posted any teasers, and we only have render leaks.
