The Tweet says, “It’s all coming together,” and asks people to “Join us live for #MadeByGoogle.” The event is happening on October 6 at 10 a.m. ET/7 a.m. PT.

Like previous Google hardware events, this latest one will be livestreamed on Google’s website. However, there will also be an in-person component in Brooklyn. Most folks will be watching from the comfort of their own home, however, and you can do so from the Events page on the Google Store website.

The teaser video for the October 6 event shows the Pixel 7, Pixel Buds Pro, and Pixel Watch. Google already launched the Pixel Buds Pro earlier this year, so this event will likely be focused on the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch.

Google confirmed the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro’s existence this past May, and the rumor mill since then has painted a pretty clear picture of what to expect. We’re looking at a similar, refined design compared to the Pixel 6 family. The iconic camera bar is sticking around for another generation, though Google is playing around with some new colors. We’re also anticipating a new Tensor 2 chipset, between 8 and 12GB of RAM, and similar camera specs. The Pixel 7 will likely have a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. The Pixel 7 Pro should also have those sensors, in addition to a 48MP telephoto camera.

As excited as we are for the Pixel 7 lineup, there’s even more anticipation surrounding the Pixel Watch — Google’s first-ever smartwatch within the Pixel family. We know that the Pixel Watch will feature a round design, a rotating crown not unlike the one on the Apple Watch, and will run Google’s latest version of Wear OS with integrated Fitbit tracking. Some rumors have hinted at there being a 300mAh battery, a Samsung Exynos processor, and either 1 or 1.5GB of RAM.

Although Google’s already teased the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch, the October 6 event is where we should get confirmation of final specs, features, pricing, and availability.

The long-rumored Samsung Galaxy Watch Ultra is expected to compete with the Apple Watch Ultra 2. And on at least one point, Samsung's ultra smartwatch could beat the one from Apple. According to 91Mobiles, the Galaxy Watch Ultra could be priced as low as $699. If correct, this would make it $100 less than the current Apple Watch Ultra.

Though the first Google Pixel Watch suffered from some technical issues, the second generation Pixel was a big improvement. For the most part, it fixed the issues of the first model and was a much better smartwatch because of it.

This year, we should see the Google Pixel Watch 3. Though we’re still some months away from any official announcement, there are already a few things we can talk about. Here’s what we know so far!

5 phones you should buy instead of the Google Pixel 8a

Everyone loves a bargain, and it's hard to argue that the Google Pixel 8a is anything but. With a flagship processor and one of the best phone cameras around, the $499 smartphone has the specs to make it a steal. But Google hasn't just crammed great hardware into the phone, as it also has one of the cleanest implementations of Android 14, all of Google's current AI roster, and an incredible seven years of software updates to boot. It's a cheap phone that can go the distance, and one we are more than happy to recommend.

But it's not perfect. The battery is a little weak, as is its charging ability — and the less said about the cheap-feeling plastic body, the better. So even though it's a strong phone, there are a number of alternatives that could pull your eyes away from Google's latest midrange phone.
