"See you on the 7th" - that was Apple's big tagline for their September 7 live launch event. They revealed a whole bunch of exciting new features and we kept you in the loop with our blog of updates in real time, a live video stream discussion, and tweets as the event happened. But it sounds like Apple isn't the only one who knows how to throw a party.
Another tech company has been sending out invites for an event next month. In the past, we've told you about the new iPhone rival that will blow you away. As promised, here's some more information on what we know so far.
On October 4 at 9 a.m. PST., Google will host a live event, most likely to unveil a new line of Pixel smartphones. Unlike Google Nexus, which runs on Google's Android operating system but is manufactured by a third party, this new device will be made by Google inside and out.
According to Android Police, the Pixel will be five inches long and the Pixel XL will be 5.5 inches long.
Apple already designs and manufactures their own phones with their own operating system. This could be Google's way of trying to catch up by consolidating their brand into a consistent look. The two companies constantly flip flop for the spot of number one tech giant.
The ambiguous video seems to show the search bar morphing into the shape of a smartphone. It creates hype without revealing much of anything. Google probably has more up their sleeve; maybe they also have new tablets, updates on the Google Duo video chat app, or something else we can't even imagine!
