Google has announced the launch date of its new smartphone series, the Pixel 8. But not just that, the tech-giant also posted the Pixel 8 Pro on its online store, or should I add ‘accidentally posted’. We really don’t know if this was really an accident or just a move to create the hype. The tech-giant even posted a picture of Pixel 8 Pro on the store the next day Apple dropped Wonderlust’s invite. Those who don’t know, the Wonderlust is believed to be the launch of iPhone 15 series and more Apple products. However, the Pixel 8 series could also be joined by the Pixel Watch 2.
The tech-giant has announced the Pixel 8 earlier but then, sending invites of the Made by Google event, seemed like it wanted to tackle Apple on its Wonderlust announcement. A known youtuber, Marques Brownlee, confirmed the event’s invite. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro might be officially introduced on October 4.
The company has also claimed some more devices in the Pixel portfolio of devices, which made us think about the Pixel Watch 2. Google might also introduce the Pixel Watch 2 on October 4, as I mentioned before. Google will host this event in New York at 10 AM.
