New date proposed for Pixel 6 launch
Well, peeps, we may have misled you. In fact, the whole internet may have misled you, at least when it comes to the earlier leak regarding the announcement data of the Google Pixel 6.
Google Pixel 6 could be released on October 28
A couple of days ago, Chinese Weibo leaker Bald Panda reported that Google's newest flagship series would be officially announced on September 13, one day before Apple's event dedicated to the iPhone 13 announcement is rumored to take place.
However, a new (more reliable) report has now arisen claiming that Bald Panda played everyone. The original post, which was widely reported on, turns out to be — if this new leak is accurate — in fact, fake news.
Jon Prosser, who is mainly an Apple leaker with a 74.3% accuracy, has proposed a new date for the Pixel 6 launch, one that is almost two months away. When the original date started spreading across the web, Prosser immediately took to Twitter promising to "look into this" with an update for us the next day.
The update has arrived in the form of a lengthy FrontPageTech report, which insists that Bald Panda was not in fact correct. The "real" date is actually October 28, per the report. Pre-orders for the Pixel 6 duo are set to kick off a little earlier on October 19, which could double as the date of the official Pixel 6 event.
- Google Pixel 6 pre-order date — October 19
- Google Pixel 6 release date — October 28
Now, Prosser's track record may be better than some, but it's always good to take any purported "official" date with a grain of salt unless it comes from the company itself—in this case, Google. It isn't clear what the leaker's sources are, as we only have his word for it: "I looked Into it, reaching it out to a few of my best sources — I have the answers and guess what? It’s not September 13th."
Therefore we can't say for sure that it's one or the other, although an October date does seem a bit more logical than September. After all, is it really like Google to choose the day right before Apple to launch its own flagships?
