Google makes an event about hardware stuff every year in the end of Q3 and this year, they’re doing the same.
According to some sources, Google will be announcing their new hardware stuff on October 4th which includes the new Pixel phones, the 4K version of Chromecast, Google Home and Daydream View. So, mark the date for October 4th, Google is all set up for that event.
Google was allegedly planning to announce a 4K version of the Chromecast last year, but seems to have scuttled the launch for some reason.
Other than that, we don’t have anything new to report but that October 4th date. We don’t know what time or where Google will hold the event, though San Francisco and New York have been their host cities of choice in the recent past. We also still don’t know when the Pixel phones will go on sale or how much they’ll cost. The same goes for any of the hardware to be announced at the event.
What we can say is that the Pixel phones will be available on or some time after October 4th, obviously. So, mark your calendars, everyone: it’s Nexus Pixel season.
