Would an early launch of the Google Pixel 8 page be a deliberate publicity stunt or a simple mistake? In any case, Google has just published a video on the future Pixel 8 and 8 Pro.
We know everything about the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro. On October 4, Google will hold its annual conference “Made by Google», date of the launch of pre-orders.
It must be said that launches in tech are marked by announcements and anticipated launches, orchestrated leaks or communication errors. This time, the launch of the page dedicated to the Google Pixel 8 could be part of this dynamic. No sooner had the page gone live than screenshots flooded the web.
Indeed, it seems almost improbable that a company of the size and rigor of Google could make such a blunder. This naturally leads one to wonder if this “error” was not in fact a masterstroke aimed at raising anticipation.
In addition, the validation of the October 4 conference and its program, largely anticipated, only confirmed the rumors circulating around the Pixel 8. By aligning the pieces of the puzzle, it is difficult not to see a marketing strategy. well orchestrated.
Pixel 8 versus iPhone 15
And just after revealing the program for its October 4 conference, Google uploaded a video showing the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, which only adds spice to this saga. These visuals, now ubiquitous on the net, offer users a glimpse of what Google is about to launch. Is this an attempt to distract from Apple’s impending iPhone 15 launch? If so, it’s a risky game.
Historically, Apple has always dominated the month of September with its iPhone announcements. By presenting its flagship product just before or around the same time, Google seems to want to launch a direct challenge to the Apple brand, seeking to occupy part of the media ground.
