There will be lots of smartphone launch events in the month of September, including the Google Pixel 6 series and the iPhone 13. We’ve already heard rumors about these two premium smartphones, revealing key details about the specifications. And today we’re hearing another rumor about Pixel 6 and iPhone 13, but this time around, it’s related to the launch date.

According to a post from Chinese social media site Weibo, the Google Pixel 6 will be announced on September 13, while the iPhone 13 launch event is set to take place on September 15. So, the iPhone 13 launch event will take place just a day after the launch of the much-hyped Google Pixel 6.

Considering that Google usually unveils its Pixel smartphones in the month of September, the Weibo post appears to be real. And if that turns out to be the case, September will be loaded with fun!
