Google To Unveil Pixel 5, New Smart Speaker September 30
Google is set to unveil its next-generation Pixel 5 smartphone and a new smart speaker on September 30, following leaked media invitations for a virtual event.
“We invite you to learn all about our new Chromecast, our latest smart speaker, and our new Pixel phones,” reads the media invitation.
The news comes after Google confirmed it was launching a Pixel 5 with 5G connectivity later this year, coming to locations including the United Kingdom and Australia.
Products are set to include a new Google Chromecast, plus a new ‘Nest’ branded smart speaker. The later is tipped to stand vertically and sit between the Nest Mini and larger Google Home Max.
The internet has been plagued with leaked images of what appears to be a new Chromecast Android TV dongle, complete with an accompanying remote.
As previously reported the codenamed ‘Sabrina’ device is tipped to offer a more traditional remote driven user interface.
The news follows the unveiling of Google’s new Pixel 4A, which whose launch was reportedly delayed due to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Apple is also hotly-anticipated to reveal its 2020 iPhone stable in coming weeks, with the Cupertino giant set to skip its historic September unveiling this year for an expected October launch.
The range is set to include Apple’s first iPhones with 5G compatibility, taking on the likes of Google’s Pixel 5 (5G) in some quadrants.
