Google has a history of introducing new "Made by Google" smartphones in October, and there have been a flood of leaked photos and details about third-generation Pixel handsets heading for market.
The update to the Pixel line-up would also come on the heels of an Apple event next week that is likely to star new iPhone models.
Rumors buzzing include that Google plans to release new Pixel models and perhaps an updated Android-powered smartwatch to go with the handsets.
New Pixel phones are expected to be tuned to take advantage of advancements the company has been making in artificial intelligence.
Last year's Made by Google event didn't just see a smartphone launch. Google also announced the Chrome OS-powered Google Pixelbook, the Google Home Mini and Max, a new Daydream View VR headset, the Google Pixel Buds, and an AI-powered camera called "Google Clips".
