(Reuters) - Google will showcase artificial intelligence features, and updates to its Pixel devices and the Android platform at a special event on Aug. 13, according to invites shared online by the Verge and tech commentator Marques Brownlee.

The event will be held at Google's Mountain View headquarters, and have a keynote beginning at 10 am PT (5 pm GMT) followed by a "hands-on product experience", according to the invite graphic.

The Alphabet unit did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Google typically unveils new Pixel smartphones and watches in the fall.

Earlier this month, rival Apple announced a slew of new features based on generative AI coming to its iPhones.
