☀️ Good Morning, folks. I woke up with my iPhone 12 in hand today and felt a strong need to get a new phone. Not that I am terribly unhappy with it, but I could definitely do with better battery life. Thankfully, several new phones are launching soon, including the new iPhone 14 series. Over in the Android world, Google is all set for the next Pixel launch. Read on for more on that and other tech news you may have missed.
Pixel 7 series incoming
As October nears, it’s time to anticipate a new Pixel phone. This year’s Pixel launch will be extra special because Google is hosting an offline event after years, and it’s also gearing up to launch its first-ever smartwatch.
- Google has finally announced an October 6 launch event.
- The company has confirmed it’ll launch the new Pixel hardware lineup on the day.
- The launch is happening in Brooklyn, New York, making it Google’s first in-person event since the onset of the pandemic.
- You can mark your calendars for a livestream of the event here.
- Speaking of the Pixel 7 series, it’s no stranger to those of us who’ve been keeping tabs.
- Google already shared the official imagery of the phones, and we’ve also seen some unboxing videos.
- The company has also confirmed the name of the new Tensor chip that’ll power its latest flagships. It’s called Tensor G2.
- Google says the new processor will bring “even more helpful, personalized features to photos, videos, security, and speech recognition.”
- Confused if you should buy the Pixel 6 or wait for the Pixel 7? Here’s some advice.
Not just a smartphone launch
A Japanese hotel certainly takes the concept of a nightcap very seriously. So much so that the establishment is offering a beer tap inside its guest rooms. Why? Because who doesn’t like a constant supply of craft beer day in and day out?
The Villa & Barren Lounge in Japan’s Shinzouka City offers five rooms, each equipped with its own beer tap, not just smart coffee makers or tea bags.
- The taps supply 10 liters of craft beer per night to hotel guests absolutely free of cost.
- That’s equal to over 17 pints per night.
- What’s more? This beer is specially brewed for the hotel’s taps and is unavailable elsewhere.
- I guess they really want to give their guests a good reason not to check out. 🤣
Have a nice day,
