Here we are, it’s the week of Made by Google, the most important consumer event of the year for the California giant. Google has not only done nothing to hide what will come out in two days, but for some time now it has decided to actively participate in the pre-launch rumors. And in an attempt to replace the dozens of rumors that in the past years have stolen the “taste” of going on stage, it soon came out again this year. The goal was achieved in part, because of the products that will be official – Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel Watch and Nest (already official, as the “cheap” Chromecast with Google TV has been for a few days) – you already know almost everythingthanks to Google And to rumors.

Pixel 7 Pro is the product destined to capture the attention of observers and enthusiasts during the event on 6 October. It could not be otherwise because if 2021 was the year of the debut of the first chip designed at home, after a year of “running in” with Tensor G2, Google now has no more extenuating circumstances: it has to put a convincing chip in its customers’ hands right from the start. day one, one that does not need continuous “coupons” with firmware updates to reach full form. In short: it is the year of truthwell why Google will debut in the smartwatch sector with Pixel Watch.

By now you will have understood: the Made by Google on Thursday 6 is a crucial junction for 2022 and a good part of 2023 for Google. We do the point about what we know about Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7, Pixel Watch and Nest Wi-Fi Pro a few days after the introductory words of CEO Sundar Pichai and the explanations of the managers with the big G on the chest.

In recent days, an “oversight” of Amazon has offered us a preview of what the Italian list price of Pixel 7, and the surprise – understandably – made you argue: buying a Pixel 7 should require the same money as its predecessor. At a time like the current one in which inflation is galloping it would be a strong signal if, as it seems, Google had worked to sell the new Pixels at last year’s prices, but it would not be a choice without consequences.

There don’t seem to be any downgrades in sight mind you, but not even striking news except for the chip that will have to move and manage everything, the second generation Tensor put black and white in Mountain View and produced in the Samsung foundries with which Google has for some time started a close collaboration. So he waited slight changes to the design of which not even Google has made a secret, which since the I / O in May has distributed official images of the two, and slight upgrades to technical specifications.

The aesthetic element that will certainly change is the rear horizontal band, the one in which the cameras are placed: from a design full black we will switch to a contrasting color for the “windows” that house the sensors. The display surface, on the other hand, should remain the current one.

Sui pricesas mentioned, Good news: in the USA as in Europe / Italy those of the current generation should remain at least for the attack versions: 599/649 dollars / euro for Pixel 7, 899/899 dollars / euro for Pixel 7 Pro, but due to a euro / dollar exchange rate which for now is very unstable, surprises cannot be excluded. of the last hour. The European launch of which Italy is part of this year (it’s official) it should take place on 13 Octoberone week after the presentation.

PIXEL WATCH

Google Pixel Watch it is a novelty in the range of the web giant, so if it is not expected in the same way as the flagship Pixel 7 Pro we are close to it. To the delight of the curious, Google has been talking about it since the I / O event in May, also showing some images, so at least on the design front there are few doubts. Just yesterday, however, several “real” photographs landed on the net.

Pixel Watch, which Google has recently anticipated with a short video on the design (you can find it below), will be a smartwatch from extremely clean and minimalist designwith a circular case, therefore as similar as possible to a traditional watch, and with a glass that protects the slightly rounded display, an effective solution.

Side features the picture that can be drawn of the new Pixel Watch is more uncertain. Not even so much, however, because rumors were not lacking and for example reliable sources such as the FCC, one of the US bodies that certify products before launch, have anticipated some interesting details: the access version, therefore cheaper, will have GPS, NFC and Wi-Fi only, but there will be at least one with 4G data connectivity.

The European strike price it should be in line with that of other competitors, but what is quite surprising is the reduced price difference between the Wi-Fi only variant and the one with LTE connectivity: according to Roland Quandt, usually quite reliable, the first should arrive in Europe at 379 euros, the second at 50 euros more, therefore at 419 euros. In the last few days, a sensational indiscretion has emerged: Google in some countries could give Pixel Watch to those who pre-order Pixel 7 Pro. An important economic effort even before marketing to make Pixel Watch known? We will see.
