Google recently confirmed several details about the Pixel 6 series, including the new Pixel 6 Pro moniker as well as other important aspects of the phone. However, the one thing the company didn’t do was provide an official release date for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
Now, a known Chinese tipster has leaked a possible launch date for the Pixel 6 series. The tipster claims that the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro could launch on September 13, a day before Apple’s iPhone 13 launch event is rumoured to take place.
According to the tipster, the Pixel 6 series will join the likes of the iPhone 13 series, Mi 11T series, Huawei Nova 9 series, and Vivo X70 series in September. While Google did confirm a fall launch for the Pixel 6 series, no official date has been provided. Google also tend to reveal new Pixel devices in October.
However, Google may be looking to get ahead of the competition as a month’s delay could see the Pixel 6 series lose out to Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup. Additionally, the tipster also noted that Xiaomi’s Mi 11T series will be unveiled on September 15, while Huawei’s Nova 9 press conference will take place on September 29.
