Everything Expected From Google Tomorrow
Drowning in leaks and reveals, well in advance to the big day, here is everything we are expecting to see from Google at the Pixel 4 event.
Starting with the titular Pixel 4 smartphone, Google is expected to launch two versions of the phone, with one being the XL version.
Being potentially the most leaked phone ever, there is plenty to look forward to in a 90Hz variable refresh rate screen, an upgraded camera and a new face unlock feature that Google claims is a familiar feature, engineered differently.
Radar motion-sensing technology is being built into the top bezel of the Pixel 4, that will reportedly allow users to ‘skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls, just by waving your hand’.
According to Nikkei, there may even be a 5G version of the Pixel 4 released, although it doesn’t particularly line up well with the product name.
The Pixelbook Go is due to receive an update as well, with a 13.3-inch touchscreen display in either full HD or 4K in a traditional clamshell laptop design.
Hands-on photos have revealed a ribbed texture on the bottom of the device, perhaps to assist with internal thermals.
Google will also be jumping on the true wireless bandwagon with an update to the Pixel Buds.
Expected in the refresh is 10+ hours of audio playback before charge, USB-C charging case, sweat-proof exterior, tactile not touch gestures and auto muting features.
The Google Nest WiFi lineup is also due to be updated, with the Home Mini being rebranded as the Google Nest Mini.
Looking almost identical to the original design, the Google Nest Mini reportedly adds a wall mounting hole on the back and includes a different power connector, as opposed to the micro-USB port featured on its predecessor.
The Nest Mini is expected to be updated to Bluetooth 5.0 for improved efficiency in casting audio, as well as the inclusion of a 3.5mm audio jack, which will allow users to turn regular speaker systems smart.
New Nest WiFi Routers are also due to be released, with the main router connected to smaller beacons to create a Mesh wifi network.
Each of the Nest Wi-Fi beacons will reportedly double as Google Assistants, as is predicted with the rebranded Google Home Mini.
