The Pixel Fall Launch event starts very soon. And we're going to show you how to watch the unveiling of the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with a live stream.

Our Google Pixel 6 event live blog is up and running. There you'll find the latest leaks and news, plus full details of anything Google announces during the stream, from news about the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to a closer look at any surprise hardware that makes its debut.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro prices have leaked already at $599 and $899, so we're excited to see if these flagships can live up to the hype. Here's where you can find a Google Pixel Fall launch event live stream.

What time is Google Pixel Fall Launch event?

You can watch Google's Pixel Fall Launch event starting at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET/6 p.m. BST today (Tuesday, Oct. 19). 

How can I watch Google's Pixel Fall Launch event?

Right now, the easiest way to watch Google's Pixel Fall Launch event is to either watch on the dedicated Pixel event website Google has set up or on the YouTube link above.

What can I expect from Google's Pixel Fall Launch event?

Just by the title of the event, Google has made it quite clear what it intends to announce. Both the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will make their debut at today's event.

The Pixel 6 will be Google's 6.4-inch model and it will feature the same camera setup as the Pixel 5 — a main camera augmented by an ultrawide angle lens. However, for the Pixel 6, Google is boosting the optics, with rumors suggesting a 50MP sensor for the main camera. The Pixel 6 Pro will feature a larger 6.71-inch display, and it's adding a telephoto lens to go with the wide/ultrawide angle cameras from the regular Pixel.

The real star of the show will be the Tensor processor that powers the Pixel 6 models. This is a Google-designed chip, as the phone maker gets away from the Qualcomm Snapdragon silicon it's used in previous models. Tensor will include a dedicated Tensor Processing Unit, suggesting machine learning and artificial intelligence will figure very much into this new phone.

The big mystery surrounding the Pixel 6 launch isn't necessarily the specs — Google has already confirmed details like the Tensor chip, while other specs have been filled in by well-sourced rumors. Instead, we're just waiting to hear what the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will cost, though a bump from the Pixel 5's $699 starting price seems inevitable.

It seems unlikely that Google would devote an entire product launch to two phones that have largely been pre-announced. So that's fueling speculation about what else you might be able to watch at the Google Pixel Fall Launch event. A foldable device, the Pixel Fold, is allegedly in the works and could make an appearance. Rumors have also suggested that a long anticipated Pixel Watch might finally arrive, though we think that's a very remote possibility. Other would-be products that could appear on Tuesday are a Pixelbook sequel, a Pixel tablet and new Nest speakers, though the name of the event would seem to preclude non-Pixel products from making an appearance.
