Pixel 6 video teaser hypes up Google Tensor AI capabilities

by Jeremy

The Google Pixel 5a just launched, but fans are undoubtedly waiting for a complete Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro announcement, especially following last month’s unexpected teaser. Meanwhile, Google continues teasing its upcoming flagship with a new image on its MadeByGoogle Instagram account.

The image shows the Pixel 6 display, complete with the center hole punch and Android 12‘s uniquely-styled Material You widgets. It’s not too different from Google’s earlier Pixel 6 sneak peek video showing off the Material You design.

While Google doesn’t mention a launch date in the caption, photos often speak a thousand words, and some images hint at a date (or two).Pixel 6 video teaser hypes up Google Tensor AI capabilities

As pointed out by 9to5Google, a close look at some of the clock widgets reveals the date of Tuesday the 19th. Besides, earlier this year in January, the 19th fell on that day of the week in October. Google previously stated that the phones would launch “later this fall,” so October 19 puts it squarely in that time frame.

The same clock widget also shows a time of 9:30, which could either indicate the actual device announcement date or simply the launch time, although, at this point, we may just be grasping at straws.

That said, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility, as a new Pixel device usually launches just after the latest Android software update. With Android 12 Beta 5 available for some of the best Android phones and the full release arriving “in the weeks ahead,” an October 19 launch seems possible.

Update, September 9 (2:40 a.m. ET) ― Here’s your best look yet at the Pixel 6’s design

Just hours after teasing the Pixel 6 on Instagram, Google released the first commercial for the Pixel 6 series on YouTube. The 30-second video gives us our first “real-world” look at the design of Google’s upcoming flagship phones.

The ad also includes a shot of Google’s “in-house developed” Tensor chipset and highlights key Android 12 features such as the new Material You redesign and dynamic color theming.
