What Time is the Event?

In Africa that would mean the event will be live at:
- Nigeria: 18:00 WAT
- South Africa: 19:00 CAT
- Kenya: 19:00 EAT
- Ghana: 17:00 GMT
What to Expect:
The two major announcements to expect are the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro. The event is being called the Pixel Fall launch so it will predominantly be a showcase for the Pixel 6 Series.
Pixel 6 is an important series of smartphones because they will be powered by Google’s own processor for the very first time in the Pixel series.
Expected features for the Pixel 6 Series include water resistance, wireless charging, 30W wired charging, a 50MP main camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide shooter.
The Pro model is expected to ship with a larger battery than the regular Pixel 6 and will feature a 4X 48MP periscope camera and a higher refresh rate.
Another device being rumoured for the event is the Pixel Watch, but users shouldn’t be too dead set on that device appearing tonight. Google is also apparently working on a Pixel foldable device but this event probably won’t be used to launch this item.
However, other devices like audio accessories, smart home gadgets and more could make their appearance alongside the Pixel 6, including the new Google Nest device.
