Google accelerates hardware launch: Pixel 9 and Watch 3 unveiling set for early August

Key points:

  • Google’s annual Pixel hardware event, typically held in October, has been surprisingly shifted to a much earlier date: August 13th, 2024.
  • The event, titled “Made by Google 2024,” will be held at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, marking a return to the West Coast after recent East Coast events.
  • Announcements are expected to include the Pixel 9 lineup, potentially featuring multiple Pixel 9 Pro sizes and a smaller flagship phone, alongside the next generation Pixel Watch 3 and Pixel Buds Pro 2.

In a move that has surprised tech enthusiasts, Google has announced a significantly earlier date for its annual Pixel hardware event. Traditionally held in October, “Made by Google 2024” will now occur on August 13th, 2024. This shift marks a notable departure from past schedules and hints at a potentially packed agenda.

The event’s location also deviates from recent Google hardware showcases. Instead of the familiar East Coast setting, Made by Google 2024 will be held at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California. This shift echoes the first two Made by Google events held in San Francisco.

While Google refrained from disclosing specific details about the event’s focus, the invitation itself offers some intriguing clues. The language emphasizes “the best of Google AI, Android software and the Pixel portfolio of devices,” suggesting a strong focus on these core areas.

Based on leaked information and past release cycles, several exciting announcements are anticipated at the event. The Pixel 9 lineup is expected to be the star of the show, potentially featuring not only the standard Pixel 9 but also multiple Pixel 9 Pro variations. Rumors suggest a “Pixel 9 Pro XL” maintaining the current Pro’s size, while Google may finally cater to fans of smaller flagships with a more compact offering. Additionally, a foldable Pixel 9 Pro Fold could be unveiled.

Beyond smartphones, the event is also expected to shed light on the next generation of wearables with the introduction of the Pixel Watch 3. Leaks have already provided some insights, suggesting the Watch 3 will come in two sizes (41mm and 45mm) and retain a design similar to previous generations. Audiophiles may also be treated to news of the Pixel Buds Pro 2.

With the event rapidly approaching, eager tech enthusiasts can stay tuned to 9to5Google for comprehensive live coverage of Made by Google 2024. This event promises to unveil the latest advancements in Google’s hardware portfolio, potentially setting the stage for exciting new technological experiences.
