Pixel 6 mid-October launch date looks more and more likely

Evidence is mounting for an October 19 launch date.

What you need to know

  • A Telstra site may have hinted at an October 19 launch date for the Pixel 6.
  • That date has also been called out in previous leaks from device renders and leakers.
  • The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro recently his the FCC, suggesting an imminent launch.

Google has yet to provide a specific launch date for the Google Pixel 6, only giving us the vague, corporate-speak of "later this fall." However, evidence continues to point to a specific day in October as the launch date.

A Reddit user has spotted (via Droid-Life) a Telstra promotion for "the latest Google product news and offers" where users can sign up to indicate their interest and possibly win a prize. However, the fine print at the bottom states that users must sign up to learn about Google's latest product before October 19, suggesting that the information may be available on that date.

This wouldn't be the first time October 19 was hinted at as the launch date of the Pixel 6. In August, leaker Jon Prosser stated that the Pixel 6 would launch on October 19 before being released later on October 28.

Additionally, recent device renders from Google appeared to tease the date of Tuesday the 19th, which only corresponds with January and October of 2021.

Lastly, Google has noticeably stepped up its promotion of the Pixel 6, going so far as to plaster billboards all over major U.S. cities like New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The company worked with photographer David Urbanke to capture images of the campaign, which you can find on his website.

With the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro having recently been spotted passing through the FCC, you may want to start marking your calendars. If Google ends up launching the Pixel 6 on October 19, that means there's just less than a month until the full reveal, where we'll learn more about the Tensor chip's capabilities and how the phone will stack up against the best Android phones of 2021.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
