Google I/O, the yearly developer’s conference, is taking place on May 10, revealed Sundar Pichai, Google CEO.
As with last year’s conference, I/O 2023 will take place in front of a “limited live audience” at the historic Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.
This edition should be the first in four years with in-person attendance, however it will still be live-streamed on Google’s YouTube and other social media platforms for the public to attend.
Those interested can register themselves online.
Last year’s Google I/O revealed the Google Pixel 7 series’ design, the Google Pixel Watch, and the Google Pixel Tablet which still has not been released.
This year it is expected to unveil details on the Android 14 Beta which is likely to hit the market in Q3 2023.
Further details may also be shared pertaining to the forever-rumored Pixel foldable and tablet and hopefully a new edition of the Pixel Buds Pro that were introduced last I/O.
Chatbots and AI are the big talking point in 2023, and Google might officially launch Bard, the project that is supposed to compete with ChatGPT.
The tech giant is expected to announce the next generation of the Android operating system.
Android 14 is likely to be the highlight of the Google I/O 2023 event.
Post I/O 2023, the OS will be made available for a wide range of devices, including smartphones from major Android OEMs like Samsung, OnePlus, Vivo, Oppo, Realme, and more.
In addition to this, the company is also expected to announce an affordable Pixel smartphone dubbed Pixel 7a with Tensor G2 processor, high-resolution camera, higher refresh rate display, and more.
The successor of the Pixel 6a is expected to feature a similar design to the flagship Pixel 7 smartphone.
Like any other Pixel device, it is expected to offer a high-resolution camera system.
The high-resolution camera system of the Pixel 7a will be among the best in the price segment.
Compared to the Pixel 6a’s 60Hz display, the Pixel 7a is likely to boast of a 90Hz panel with an improved in-display fingerprint sensor.
In India, the Pixel 6a was launched at a price of Rs 43,999 and it is possible that the upcoming Pixel 7a will also come with a similar price tag.
Shortly after the launch of the Pixel 6a, Google offered the smartphone at a much discounted price to drive sales.
The tech giant could opt for the same strategy for the Pixel 7a as well.
Google is also expected to launch the much-rumored Pixel tablet.
Some reports also suggest that Google could also tease the Pixel 8 series and its first foldable device, the Pixel Fold.
The flagship Pixel phone will go official only later this year, around the time when Apple launches its iPhone 15 series.
It should be noted that the tech giant hasn’t confirmed anything about any of these devices yet.
