  • As per a fresh leak, the Google Pixel 6 series is expected to go on pre-order starting October 19.
  • The phones could eventually release on October 28.
  • There’s still no word on an official launch date, but a September reveal seems unlikely.

A fresh leak from Jon Prosser over at FrontPageTech suggests that the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro may not launch in September after all.

According to the information obtained by the tipster, Google will open pre-orders for the Pixel 6 series on October 19. The phones would eventually go on sale and hit store shelves the following week, on October 28.

Prosser claims that these details come from a few of his best industry sources. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the September 13 launch date recently tipped on Weibo is completely out of the question. The Pixel 5 was also announced in September last year. However, if the October 19 pre-order date is accurate, as Prosser insists, it could very well be the day Google announces the Pixel 6 duo.

Alternatively, if Google makes the new Pixels official in September, it would mean a month-long wait for buyers who want to pre-book the devices. The company usually doesn’t have that big a gap between smartphone announcements and market availability.

Nevertheless, with this new leak, it seems Google will wait out the new iPhone 13 series before bringing its flagships to market. But we won’t know for sure until we hear from the company itself. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro should be available at least in these eight countries at launch. Head to our dedicated rumor hub to know more about the phones.
