If you’re waiting to see the Pixel 9, Pixel Watch 3, or other new Google hardware, then August 13th could be a big day for you because look what just hit our inboxes:

You’re invited to an in-person Made by Google event where we’ll showcase the best of Google AI, Android software and the Pixel portfolio of devices.

The keynote will take place at 10AM PT / 1PM ET, and you can be sure we’ll be there to see what’s new. It’s coming earlier in the year than last year’s Made by Google showcase, where Google revealed the Pixel 8 phones, the Pixel Watch 2, and AI enhancements for Google Assistant.

Moving the date up does mean there’s less time for pre-event leaks, which have typically been an issue for the Pixel lineup. Maybe this is a hedge against that, maybe Google is just way ahead of schedule in 2024, or maybe we won’t see any of the things we’re expecting, and this is all about a new Pixel Fold or Pixel Tablet?
