Google I/O 2023 dates have been announced. The search engine giant confirmed that it will host its annual developer conference on May 10 this year. The Google I/O event will be hosted from the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View in California, US. As expected, viewers from across the globe will be able to watch the I/O 2023 event online. Google is expected to announce multiple things at the developer conference.
The first on the list will be Android 14. We also expect the company to announce the Pixel 7A and a bunch of other hardware products. It would also not be a surprise if Google Bard, the company’s chatbot rival to ChatGPT, gets a lot of stage time at the I/O conference. Let’s take a look at what to expect from Google I/O 2023.
Google I/O 2023: What to Expect
The new Google I/O 2023 developer event will be hosted on May 10. Google is expected to announce multiple products at the event. The highlight of the event is expected to be Android 14. The company has already released the first developer preview of Android 14. The second preview of Android 14 should be released soon after I/O 2023. Google will share the new features along with potential design changes that will be coming to Android at the developer event. Developers will be able to work on their apps to make them compatible or add new features introduced in the next major Android update.
The Pixel Fold, which has been sort of a rumour mill favourite, could also be unveiled at the Google developer event. Last year, Google teased the Buds Pro at I/O alongside the Pixel 6a. This time around, we can expect the company to unveil some details – if not all – about the rumoured Google foldable phone.
Design renders of the Pixel Fold have leaked in the past. The design renders showed a foldable phone sporting a flat screen with a slightly thick top and chin bezel. The right side of the top bezel will house one of the two front cameras. As per the leaked details, the Pixel Fold will sport a 7.69-inch foldable display. The second 9.5MP front camera is at the top centre of the cover display, which is said to be 5.79 inches tall. The Pixel Fold will have a triple-camera setup on the back.
There will also be the Pixel 7a. While Google did not confirm it officially, the Pixel 7a could be announced at the developer event. Over the past few years, the company has announced its new A-series phones at the developer event and the same could continue this time around.
The leaked Pixel 7a design renders revealed that the phone will look similar to the Pixel 6a. It will have a horizontal visor on the back for the dual-camera setup. The device is tipped to feature a Sony IMX787 main camera sensor along with a Sony IMX712 ultra-wide camera sensor
On the front, the 90Hz AMOLED display of the phone is flat and has a hole-punch cutout at the top centre. The device is likely to get Google’s Tensor G2 SoC as well.
