Google Pixel 6: where to watch ‘best ever’ Android phone launch tonight

Android users are in for a treat this evening as Google is set to reveal the latest iteration of its flagship smartphones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

The Pixel 6 may be the worst kept secret in tech thanks to months of leaks and even a cryptic public reveal in a New York shop window in August. We already know what it looks like, what camera it will have, and how big it is.

However, that isn't stopping Google from pulling off a big pre-recorded launch in which its executives can act as if this is all news. They may well have some surprises and tricks up their sleeve as the company tries to compete with the new iPhone 13s.

There is even rumours of a 'folding' Pixel phone, much in the same vein as the Samsung Fold and Flip range.

You'll be able to watch the 'Pixel Fall Launch' at 6PM BST or 1PM ET on Google's nifty Pixel 6 webpage.

Preorders of the new smartphone are set to go live after the launch event, or by Friday at the latest. So you can expect a release date and shipping likely next week.

The Pixel 6 will feature Google's own custom-built 'Tensor' processor, which should bring enhanced AI capabilities to the phone by emulating the kind of chips that exist in the company's high-tech data processing facilities.

It's unclear what features this will translate into on the phone, but could enable better photo enhancement, real-time translation, and faster voice recognition. The price of the Pixel 6 hasn't been revealed yet, but if the Pixel 5 is anything to go by, it could be at least £629.
