According to Android blog 9to5Google, meanwhile, Google is also expected to announce its Home Mini, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixelbook and the Daydream View 2 devices. That leaves it way behind Apple and Samsung when it comes to sourcing important hardware components like displays and marketing and supporting the gadgets. Differences this year include dust and water resistance, no headphone jack (bad news for audiophiles) and a smaller glass area at the back.
The device adds the ability to cast your experience to the big screen so you can showcase the content you're experiencing. As for the Pixel 2 design, some people were disappointed with the leaks as they reveal the device with huge bezels on the top and bottom display.
Droid Life recently also claimed to have images of the new handset, alongside a new mini wireless speaker, and images of an updated Daydream VR headset. The report said there are a number of references in the Google Home app, indicating how the app would work with the Chromebooks.
It is a direct shot at Amazon's Echo Dot.
In this ad, Google describes the Pixel 2 as a new way to capture, store, and see the world. Details are scarce but the device is priced at 80 CAD (about $64). Since this is a high-end Chromebook and packs the goods you'd want from a computer in this price range.
The Chrome OS-running laptop is expected to be priced between United States dollars 1,199 and USD 1,749 and is expected to come with its own range of accessories such as a smart pencil. For storage it starts at a whopping 128GB and goes up to 512GB.
Google Home's hands-free calling is another feature they touched on that takes advantage of the 360-degree audio as well.
