Google solves leaks by “leaking” Pixel 7, Pixel Watch, Pixel Tablet, but there’s one more thing!

Google I/O is an annual developer conference hosted by Google. In case you were wondering, “I/O” stands for Input/Output, as well as the slogan “Innovation in the Open”. For Apple enthusiasts, it’s the equivalent of Google WWDC or the WorldWide Developers Conference.

And while Google I/O has always been a software-focused event where the most interesting part was undoubtedly the unveiling of the next version of Android, the past few years have been different. Especially 2022.

Of course, we still have a word on Android 13 and all of Google’s amazing work improving and evolving its existing app portfolio, but I won’t lie – I was holding my breath for new hardware.

And holy candy (?!), did Google deliver!

So let’s talk about the Pixel 6A, Pixel Buds Proand the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel Watchand Pixel tablet?! That’s right. Google too delivered regarding the hardware at this event, and I think I might find out why…

Not only did Google unveil long-awaited products like the Pixel Buds Pro, which I suspect are supposed to take over the role of Apple’s AirPods Pro in the Android world, but we also finally got the first A-series phone. , the Google Pixel. 6A, which carries Google’s new design and brand identity, just as iconic as the Pixel 6, released in late 2021. These are the “immediate” releases – products people will be able to buy soon. Although the launch frame for them is end of June, so I don’t know how soon that is…

Google Pixel hardware dump: Felt cute…may be out later (Pixel 7, Pixel Watch and Pixel Tablet)

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro: five months earlier

Then… the crowd took out their phones and started taking pictures of… Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro because they were on screen. They were unveiled for everyone to see! It turns out that the premature 2021 announcement of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro was no exception for Google.

The thing is, the Pixel 6 pre-announcement came after a series (and by “series” I mean a whole season) leaks have already been published by OnLeaks and Jon Prosser in the months leading up to the official reveal. Additionally, the Pixel 6 pre-announcement took place in August – two months before the phones were launched.

While this year we’ve certainly had a fair share of Google Pixel 7 leaks, they haven’t been as detailed, assuming there won’t be much new to the Pixel 7 series compared to Google’s current flagship products. Anyway, the thing is, the Pixel 7 hasn’t been as heavily leaked as the Pixel 6.

Also, this time around, Google’s pre-announcement takes place in early May, which is almost six months ahead of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s expected launch in mid-October.

Google Pixel Watch: It’s GD time…

Then the super-hyper-ultra-long-awaited and Pixel Watch monitoring. As you may know, this one was already “fully unveiled” on Redditthanks to the fact that Google employees allegedly managed to leave it in a bar in Chicago.

Anyway, the Google Pixel Watch will also release alongside the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro in October, so that’s another five months of waiting for those who want to get their hands on it. Until then, try your local beer gardens. Who knows!

Google Pixel tablet: twenty twenty three

And then there was the announcement of the Pixel tablet.

First of all, absolutely no one saw this coming – the media weren’t told about it; we’ve never seen it in any leaks, and frankly… It’s almost as if Android fans have already given up hope of a new, larger slab made by Google after the Nexus tablet was retired in 2014. Additionally, Google basically said the company was exiting the tablet business in 2019. Well no.

The weirdest part of this announcement was that the Pixel tablet isn’t just expected to debut late, like in October or later this year. This is actually a 2023 release, which for some reason was supposed to be announced now. Out of left field.

It’s almost guaranteed that the Pixel tablet won’t see the light of day until May 2023 or even October 2023 since Google usually doesn’t hold any events before then. This means that we will probably have to wait a whole year or even a year and a half to see the new tablet made by Google, which is just teasing That much. Totally out of left field.

Why does Google announce its phones, watches and tablets months or even years in advance?

While I’m sure it could be explained by a change in Google’s product marketing strategy, we can’t ignore the elephant in the room. Google devices are leaking left and right.

As mentioned before, we have already seen in detail real photos of the Pixel Watch, which has even been compared to the Apple Watch. Plus, we knew this one was coming over a year ago, thanks to Front Page Tech’s Jon Prosser, who leak in April 2021, alongside the Pixel 6, which itself ended up in the hands of a Nigerian who tested the Pixel 6 pre-production unit, and used it to take sample photos and videos and share them on YouTube.
For the recordif we cancel the tape, we’ll see that other Google phones have also failed to escape the threat of leaks. For example, the Pixel 3 was seen in a subway station in Toronto, used by someone, and even found in a taxi in the United States before it was officially unveiled.

Will Google’s plan to prevent leaks work?

Before telling you about Google’s One More Thing, I would like to point out that no phone manufacturer is immune to leaks…

For example, we’ve seen Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra in actual photos months before the official reveal, and we already know what Apple’s iPhone 14 lineup will look like thanks to renders shared by a number of insiders. Let’s also not forget the story of Apple’s iPhone 4 bar. The story of the OG bar.

But we still haven’t seen what’s practically a full hands-on look at recent Samsung or Apple devices – something we can’t say about the Pixel Watch and Pixel 6. So maybe that’s Google that says, “We take control of leaks by…leaking our own products.” But what I’m not sure is if this will work in favor of Google…

For example, I own a Pixel 6 Pro and after seeing the now confirmed Pixel 7 Pro design, I can now confidently say that I won’t be looking to upgrade. On the contrary, when the Pixel 6 Pro was leaked by multiple sources in 2021, and we were all excited about the new design, boarding the hype train, I bought into it. It worked. I pre-ordered the phone and later regretted it as this one came with a ton of bugs.

One more thing: Google didn’t show everything at I/O

Anyway, I don’t know if you noticed, but a highly anticipated product was not revealed during Google I/O! Of course, this is the so-called Pixel Notepad/Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable phone. It’s controversial since this one hasn’t been leaked yet, but it’s surely been the subject of a lot of rumors.

According to insiders, the Google Pixel notebook is set to debut in Q4 2022, pointing to an October release, alongside the now partially revealed Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch.

Why is Google hiding the Pixel Notepad/Pixel Fold?

My educated guess is that if Google’s intention is indeed to launch the Pixel Notepad alongside the Pixel 7 series in October, the company is ready to take a bet in the name of surpriseknowing that the foldable phone could leak at any time now. Wouldn’t the company’s first foldable phone be the perfect one One more thing during the October event? Yes it would! While it’s a Cupertino tradition, it won’t be a surprise if this one is borrowed by Mountain View this year. Apple doesn’t seem to have anything as special as a foldable phone in the works just yet, so why not let Google take center stage!

Oh, and have you seen Google’s prototype AR glasses and how they can translate speech with real-time live captions? !

I won’t consider this an “early announcement” because it wasn’t really an announcement and because Google Glass (or whatever Google decides to call glasses) is definitely years away from becoming official. But, man… was it demo impressive!

Time for conspiracy theories…

After asking if Google’s tablet could be foldable, Rick Osterloh, Senior Vice President of Devices and Services at Alphabet mentioned: “Oh… ah… you know… We just showed a little prototype of what we are building today, which is a standard tablet. There will be many more details shared next year, that is, in regards to the market.” He was smiling nervously!!!

So I am do not say it but I am saying it:

1. Could the Pixel tablet be the Pixel Notepad/Pixel Fold? !

2. Pixel Tablet/Notepad/Fold might be delayed to 2023? !

3. Or maybe not.

Bye now.
