In early October, Google announced that the full presentation of the Pixel 6 smartphone will take place on October 19. Until recently, it was expected that the upcoming flagship would be the key announcement, but now an insider with the nickname @ AppleLe257 on Twitter said that the corporation is preparing other new items: smart watches Pixel Watch, Pixel Fold (apparently a folding smartphone) and speakers under the brand Nest. Also, an insider said that the announcement of a tablet from Google is also possible.
There is no information on the foldable Pixel Fold on the net, but its release was remotely hinted at the appearance of improved support for foldable devices in Android 12.1. Also, earlier, the XDA Developers edition discovered a hidden taskbar in Android 12 Developer Preview 2 – if you activate it, application shortcuts appear at the bottom of the screen (as in desktop operating systems).
Moreover, in the beta “green robot” found an image illustrating an unknown folding device with side-by-side windows and the same taskbar below.
A little more is known about the Pixel series smartwatches: they will definitely work on the new version of WearOS, which Google is developing in conjunction with Samsung, and will receive a 5nm processor (probably the Samsung Exynos series).
