Let’s start the day with my favorite rumor: that the Pixel Watch is coming and it was left in a restaurant by accident.
Our future friends at Android Central got the inside scoop on the device, posting the pictures and news of the unit – however, it wouldn’t fully power up (it appears to be a very early prototype), so they couldn’t get a full idea of what it actually offers.
It’s an interesting design – the rounded face and more bulbous rear are quite something to behold. There will be proprietary Google strips, which you can see in the image below, and it will also contain a few hidden buttons that weren’t seen in the renders.
Will we see the watch today? I think we will – the timings match up nicely – but like the iPhone 4 disguised as a 3GS that was left in a bar all those years ago, it could be a dummy design… let’s see.
Gooooooood morning, tech fans! It’s that time of year when things start to get announced again, things start to happen, and we’re gearing up for another round of launches, unveilings, and big events.
The iPhone 14 launch isn’t too far off. Amazon Prime Day is fast approaching. The Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 is coming in a few months.
And I can chat with you again through a live blog – isn’t that great?
But I’m getting ahead – today is all about Google, and Mr. Pichai will be on stage at the Mountain View campus later today to tell us certainly about android 13, Most likely about the new Pixel 6a and the Pixel Watch (and some weird privacy and search features you never knew you needed) and may be around some things tablets, headphones and the like.
In the ignorance lies the excitement – let’s go all day long.
Hello – are you ready for Google IO 2022 today? We’re going to bring you all the information as it comes in from 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET / 6:00 p.m. BST.
What are you going to get from us? Well, let me tell you: everything you want to know about the event as it unfolds, and a ton of buildup, insight, and dissection of the top rumors we heard at the approach of the event.
What will Android 13 bring? Will the Pixel Watch appear? The Pixel 6A looks nailed – but will it be one of Google’s ‘good’ mid-range phones or a wet firecracker again? What about Pixel Buds Pro, privacy or the Nest universe? There are so many things to think about.
If you want to see the livestream (and if you do, keep the liveblog open as your friend alongside said analysis), then we’ve got you covered: here’s how to watch the Google IO article will show everything you need to know about the event display.
And while I’ll be separating the rumored devices and announcements piece by piece over the course of the day, if you want to see what’s likely to come and how to register for the event, you can skip to our Google IO 2022 hub, which contains all the juicy information.
