Google is about to launch a set of new devices at its annual event in New York next week and we have a fair idea what in store for all of us.
There have been countless leaks that point towards a range of devices that are most probably launching alongside the Pixel 3. The 'Made By Google' event will surely feature the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, however, there are other devices slated as well.
Google is expected to launch a new tablet called the 'Google Pixel Slate' along with a Google Home Hub Smart Display and more.Pixel 3 & 3 XL: What To Expect
The two flagship devices by Google are probably the most leaked smartphones in history and we have a few details that give us a fair idea — unless Google surprises us all together.
The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are going to have considerable upgrades under the hood and will have a familiar design when compared to its predecessor.
Internally, both smartphones are going to be identical in terms of specification and will have differences when it comes to design. The Pixel 3 XL will have a larger screen and a notch at the top that will probably host face unlocking sensors. The smaller variant will have an all-display look, similar to the previous generation with smaller bezels.
The camera on the two smartphones are going to host a similar single camera setup and the only noticeable change, will be in the front-facing camera. The notch at the front will host two camera sensors where one will be a wide angle lens. As anticipated, we can expect some exceptional photography from either of the cameras, as Google enhances images, thanks to the photography algorithm.
As for the innards, the Pixel 3 is expected to have Qualcomm's 845 processor under the hood and will be coupled with at least 4GB of RAM.
The Pixel 3 is expected to have an Adreno 630 GPU and 64GB or 128GB of storage. The two smartphones will come with Android 9 Pie out of the box which has always been Google's selling point.Google Pixel Slate
The Pixel Slate is expected to be Google's first tablet powered by Chrome OS and will compete with Apple's iPad Pro and Surface Pro. Based on Brydge (a company making compatible keyboards) renders, we know that it will have a minimal design and will use a USB-C port. It is also expected to have a fingerprint sensor and will support both third-party and first-party keyboards.
Under the hood, benchmark tests of the secret device reveal it will have an Intel Amber Lake i7-8500Y processor and 16GB of RAM. 9to5Google also found out from the Chromium source, that it will have a 3000×2000 display, Sony IMX319 secondary camera sensors and, Sony IMX355 primary sensor.Google Home Hub
Google Assistant-powered smart displays were announced at CES 2018 and we saw our first product by Lenovo shortly after. Google is now going to announce its own version of a smart display and will probably be called “Google Home Hub”.
The device was discovered by MySmartPrice and it will essentially be a 7-inch display with a speaker. It is expected to be available in black and white.
In terms of specifications, there will be a switch on the back-left side that will turn off the microphone, similar to Google Home. It will have other features such as Bluetooth, Wi-FI, and ambient light and colour sense.What Else?
Google is also slated to announced a wireless charging stand for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL which hints that the new smartphone will have support for the said feature. Google is also expected to launch a follow-up to last year's Pixelbook. A refreshed Chromecast is also in the books as it was accidentally sold by a BestBuy employee recently.
