For the past few weeks, there has been no shortage of news regarding Google's upcoming devices. There has, however, been a disconnect between what these products actually are. From possible phones, to tablets and operating systems, the search engine giant seems to have its hands full. Nevertheless, if there is one similar factor in all the recent reports, it is that the company is hosting an unveiling event this October 4, which will clarify all rumors.
The Pixel And Pixel XL
According to Techno Buffalo, Google is definitely releasing a smartphone this year. However, it will not be the Nexus branding that the tech industry has gotten to know and grow accustomed to. Google will instead release a new brand: The Pixel.
Both the Pixel and the Pixel XL are expected to arrive with 4GB of RAM and a minimum storage space of 32GB. Furthermore, both variants will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, which is arguably the most powerful processor in the current market. Each unit will also sport a 12 megapixel rear camera and an 8 megapixel front camera.
The only difference is that the Pixel will have a 5 inch full HD Display screen, while the Pixel XL will have a 5.5 inch QHD Display screen. The devices are also expected to sport different batteries, likely 2900 mAh and 3450 mAh batteries respectively.
The Pixel 3
As Trusted Reviews adds, however, there is likely to be another Google product that will be shown under the spotlight. Reportedly, the company is releasing a new laptop, which is expected to run on the Andromeda Operating System.
The Andromeda OS is a combination of the Android OS and Chrome OS platforms, which are both popular choices in the tech industry. As such, it is exciting to see just how Google is partnering up these two recognizable options.
However, it is unlikely that the Pixel 3 will be on sale this year. In fact, all indicators are pointing towards a 2017 release. This does not mean, however, that the public will not get to set their eyes on the unit next week.
It was expected last year, but now might be the time that Google finally brings out an update to Chromecast that makes it 4K capable. Plenty of individuals believe that streaming Ultra HD Footage will soon be possible
Another new product is Google Home, which was first announced at the Google I/O Developer Conference earlier this year. As such, it is also expected to make an appearance at the October 4 event.
Google Home is a voice-controlled speaker, which is poised to battle Amazon's popular Amazon Echo. Google Home will also feature the company's digital assistant, which will be capable of two-way conversation.
October 4 Google Event
There may be no confirmation regarding what will happen and what products will be unveiled at the October 4 Google event, but there is one thing for sure: Google has every possibility in its hands and the right opportunity to take it. At this point in time, Google's pending reveals are some of the remaining ones of the year, so all eyes are set on them.
