At the time, we thoroughly prognosticated that Mr. Lockheimers posted-then-deleted tweet could be a thinly veiled message concerning the launch date of Googles new hardware in 2021 and, most notably, the arrival of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Heres a tweet of screenshots of that tweet once again if you missed it last time around:

Hiroshi Lockheimer obviously posted (and then deleted) a screenshot from whats likely the Pixel 6 Pro (the image resolution was 1440 × 3200.) The phone is connected to Verizon 5G, likely the providers sub-6GHz network. Likewise shown is the position of the UDFPS.H/ T @jspring86az pic.twitter.com/Pessh7RvNV— Mishaal Rahman (@MishaalRahman) August 24, 2021

Front and center, the main point you see on this screen is the time: 9:13. Taken as a push to an approaching date, it was pretty simple to link this to September 13th after some folks at XDA understood the shared screenshot had the same resolution as the upcoming Pixel 6 Pro. With Hiroshis penchant towards teases on Twitter, I couldnt help but believe this is the brand-new date for Googles most likely online-only event this year.

A brand-new tipster is substantiating the date

This morning, a brand-new report emerged out of China mentioning that Googles upcoming reveal of the Pixel 6 will happen on September 13th. Sure, we get our fair share of traffic here at Chrome Unboxed, however the possibility that a random tipster in China read our post about this possible hardware event date? Very little at finest.

I still hold to the theory that Google was preparing a September 30th release date (just look at all the 9:30 times on all their press materials so far with the Pixle 6) and has most likely decided to scrap the in-person event due to the brand-new resurgence of COVID. With no need to wait on a physical venue, they can move the occasion to whenever they choose, and what much better time than right before Apples iPhone 13 event?

First seen on Notebook Check, it appears that a recognized tipster/leaker on the Chinese website Weibo has actually published hardware occasion dates for a couple of companies coming up in September, including Apple and Google. According to user Panda is Bald, we need to anticipate Googles occasion to happen on September 13th and Apples to take place two days later on the 15th.

Just last week we pondered the significance of a tweet by Google SVP Hiroshi Lockheimer and what that now-deleted communication could imply. At the time, we carefully prognosticated that Mr. Lockheimers posted-then-deleted tweet might be a thinly veiled message regarding the launch date of Googles brand-new hardware in 2021 and, most notably, the arrival of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Heres a tweet of screenshots of that tweet again if you missed it last time around:

I still hold to the theory that Google was preparing a September 30th release date (just look at all the 9:30 times on all their press products so far with the Pixle 6) and has most likely decided to ditch the in-person occasion due to the new revival of COVID.
