It is about to be three months since Google officially previewed the Pixel 7 series. Many were expecting a launch announcement soon after but nothing has changed in that aspect so far. However, a fresh leak from well-known tipster Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech (FPT) has revealed Pixel 7 series pre-order and launch date details.
Prosser has cited his "very reputable sources" to claim that Google will start taking pre-orders for Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro on October 6th. He believes that the launch event will likely take place on the same day but could also happen one or two days earlier. As for when these phones will go on sale, he says October 13th has been fixed as the date for the same.
It means there will be a gap of seven days between the Pixel 7 series going on pre-orders and the actual sale. This is in line with Google's track record of launching new Pixel flagships during the month of October. This is also when we get to see the new Android version making its way to the stable release.
We already know that Google also has Pixel Watch and Pixel Tablet ready for the launch. It would not be surprising if it decides to announce both these products at the same event as the smartphones. It will be the first time we will see Google launch a smartwatch made by itself. This is something many fans were asking for a long time and are finally getting closer to getting one.
