Google I/O 2022 has come and gone, and there were plenty of announcements at the two-day developer conference. The Pixel was the star of the show though, with Google giving us a bunch of Pixel ads to get us through the summer, fall, and even 2023.
Did you see the Google I/O keynote? If so, which Pixel device are you most excited about?
Some of the Pixel devices were highly anticipated at the event. The Pixel 6a will arrive earlier, with the same design as its flagship siblings. It will also be powered by the same flagship-level Tensor chipset, which is impressive for a phone that starts at $449, putting it in iPhone SE (2022) territory. Of course, there are some compromises, like the lesser camera specs and 60Hz display, but you’ll still get great performance and probably good battery life too.
The Pixel Buds Pro will arrive alongside the Pixel 6a this summer, finally giving us the Pixel Buds ANC we’ve been asking for. They’ll last up to 31 hours with the included charging case, support wireless charging, and look pretty good too.
Google was also kind enough to give us a very early sneak peek at the Pixel devices we’re getting this fall. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will have a similar design to the Pixel 6 series, and no, they won’t have a matte finish like we were initially told (much to the dismay of many). All we know is that they will run a next-gen Tensor chipset and feature similar camera setups. We probably know even less about the Pixel Watch, which will launch alongside upcoming flagships. It will run Wear OS, have LTE connectivity, and will be the first Wear OS device to feature Fitbit integration. Still, it’s exciting to learn that the long-awaited Pixel Watch is finally coming.
Lastly, Google gave us a very early look at the upcoming Pixel tablet. Design-wise, it’s fairly simple and doesn’t exactly scream “premium,” but it will apparently compete with the best Android tablets on the market. Unfortunately, we won’t have a launch until sometime in 2023. Still, it speaks to Google’s commitment to improving the Android tablet experience, which is why the Pixel tablet was Andrew Myrick’s favorite ad at Google I/O.
