Google's 4th October Event: New Pixel Phones, Speakers To Launch

Google's 4th October Event: New Pixel Phones, Speakers To Launch Google could launch an 'Ultra Pixel' phone to take on the iPhone X: Report

But we already know (or think we know) a fair amount about what will be revealed, including brand new Pixel smartphones with some big upgrades, and some devices that will flesh out Google's broader hardware portfolio considerably.

Google's upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagship phones are launching on October 5.

The Pixel 2 XL is supposed to be the bigger deal of the two new devices, in a few different ways: Unlike a year ago, Google will differentiate its larger-screened device with some improvements over the smaller, including a design with much slimmer bezels.

Reports also point at the fact that both the phones will now be shipping with stereo speakers.

Apple, HTC and Motorola have all debuted flagship handsets without the industry-standard audio port within the last 12 months, and now Google looks set to follow suit.

Pixel 2 is widely-tipped to have a five-inch display, whereas the larger Google Pixel XL 2 will clock-in at 5.5inches.

People Who Fail to Identify These Common Smells May Have Dementia
Lead author Professor Jayant Pinto, of the University of Chicago, said: 'Our test simply marks someone for closer attention. Study subjects smell each item and are asked to identify that odor, one at a time, from a set of four choices.

Both devices sound like they should be compelling follow-ups to the original Pixel.

While Chromebooks typically run nearly entirely on web-based applications, the Pixelbook could be different.The highest-end version of Google's notebook is expected to sport a 512GB hard drive (for a whopping $1,749), suggesting that the Pixelbook could launch with a new hybrid software that blends together Chrome OS and Android for more robust app functionality.

Judging by the latest rumors, Google may be looking to turn its Home speaker into a whole family of products, similar to what Amazon has done with its Echo.

Looks like the previous rumours were true about Google ditching OK Google in Chromebooks and replacing it with the more advanced Google Assistant. Fortunately, Google has realized this and the Pixel 2 lineup will be indeed IP67 certified.

After that launch of Google Chromebook Pixel in 2015, there would be a launch of Pixelbook which would run on Google's desktop OS.

The leaks that have emerged so far give us a good idea about the two phones and what to expect from them. This purported high-end Chromebook could feature a 2-in-1 convertible design, complete with a touchscreen and a special Pixelbook Pen designed for accurate drawing. It was later added that the device will rely heavily on gestures to navigate. We haven't yet heard what those improvements might be, however. Perhaps we'll get an update about Daydream in general, and what the Pixel 2 hardware does in terms of improving the built-in VR experience. In particular, early reports have suggested that Google Assistant will be accessible via this physical feature. The device, which Android Police first reported, will reportedly cost $49 and will be available in chalk, charcoal, and coral colors, according to a leak published by Droid Life. With the pricing of the Google Pixel 2 XL veering into iPhone and Samsung Galaxy territory, clearly the manufacturer has to deliver something truly outstanding.
