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.
