A few days ago, the tech giant shared a tweet that showed off some Pixel device phones that looked like a jigsaw puzzle. While some speculated that might be today’s date in the US, others said it was Google’s way of telling us when the next Pixel devices would launch. Here is the tweet made by the Mountain View-based company on their “Made by Google” account.
We hear that there are math assistants on #TeamPixel 👀✨

As you can see, the first phone in question is the Pixel 3, followed by the recently released Pixel 6. The third is Pixel 3 again, while the last is the first generation Pixel device.
If we replace the photos of the Pixel devices and replace them with the number of their generation, this is what the equation will look like – 3 x 6 – 3 / 1/3 x 1. Following the mathematical rules of solving an equation, called BODMAS in India and PEMDAS in the United States, we get “9” as an answer.
Now, the number could mean anything, including a possible September launch. However, with Apple slated to launch the new iPhone 14 series in September, Google could avoid a direct confrontation with its Cupertino-based rival.
A quick look at the history also shows us that Google only announced one Pixel device (the Pixel 5) in September, with October being the most preferred launch month for all other Pixel devices (apart from with the exception of variants “a”). This made many people think that the cryptic “9” could indicate a date and not a month, which means that we could see the launch of the Pixel 7 series on October 9th.
This finding also lines up with tipster Jon Prosser’s leak that suggests the Pixel 7 series will be available for pre-order starting October 6th. For now, it’s best to take this with a grain of salt though, as Google hasn’t made official launch information for the Pixel 7 series so far.
