MadeByGoogle – Google Pixel, Pixel XL and the Products to be Revealed on October 4th

Google Pixel and Pixel XL

Google will be holding an event on October 4th and during this session, a number of company products are expected to be unveiled to the public for the first time.

Among the major names are the next phones – the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. These are actually the major highlights of the event, especially considering that major OEMs in the industry have already made their mark.

The Google Pixel will succeed with LG Nexus 5X while the Google Pixel XL will succeed the Huawei Nexus 6P. Even though the two new phones will also have different sizes, they will be reduced when compared to the former models. There will be 5 inches of Full HD display on the Google Pixel as compared to 5.2 inches on the Nexus 5X. The case is the same with the Pixel XL, which will also see a 0.2-inch decrement in display size when compared to its predecessor, the Nexus 6P. However, the AMOLED QHD resolution panel will be retained.

The phones should share the same specs under the hood, but to make them different, Google should still equip them with slightly varied hardware, including the processor and storage options.

With Google set to venture into VR, the company is expected to add support for its Daydream VR platform to these two phones. Speaking of Daydream, the same October 4th event is also expected to see the search engine giant unveil the Daydream VR platform to the world. It is already available to the developers’ world after coming out of beta, but the official unveiling should happen alongside the launch of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones.

Google is showing off ads with the hashtag #MadeByGoogle in reference to the products that are to be showcased. The October 4th event will also be used to unveil a new $129 router named Google WiFi for the home. Google has been lagging behind when it comes to home entertainment and with the introduction of this WiFi router, it is a step forward into this realm. Google also announced the 4K Chromecast Ultra and it is expected to be made available during this event. Apparently, Google will price it at $69, probably due to its support for 4K and HD streaming.

We expect more products to be revealed on this date than what is contained in this list, however, the show should be stolen by the introduction of the new Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones as well as the Google Daydream VR platform, which is kind of becoming a craze in the tech world.
