Google’s much-awaited I/O 2022 annual developer conference is underway and the company has made several announcements on the first day.
The main highlights include the launch of the Pixel 6a, Pixel Watch, Pixel Buds Pro, Android 13 and the teaser for the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Tablet.
The main highlight of the launch was the mid-range Pixel 6a smartphone, which is confirmed to launch in the country later this year.
The much-awaited Pixel 6a smartphone has been finally unveiled. The device features a similar two-tone design as the Pixel 6 series, giving it a premium look.
The Pixel 6a runs on Android 12 out of the box and Google has promised three years of Android updates and five years of security updates for the device.
Google has also unveiled the Pixel Watch, the first smartwatch from the company. It comes with a circular-domed design with curved glass protection and runs on Wear OS 3.
Google has also announced the Pixel Buds Pro, its latest offering in the true wireless (TWS) segment. It is first TWS from the company to offer active noise cancellation (ANC).
Google has also teased the upcoming Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones. The company revealed the design and the fact that the devices will be powered by the next-gen Tensor chipsets.
In addition to the Pixel 7 series, the search giant also teased the Pixel Tablet, which will be the company’s first tablet since it discontinued the Nexus tablet series.
Google has also officially announced Android 13, the next iteration of its OS. Like Android 12, the main focus of this version is on customization and allowing you to personalize your device.
