Expect to see the wraps off on the Pixel and the Pixel XL phones in Google’s upcoming event on 4th of October.
The major event of the company is nearing and invitations are being handed out before the kick off.
What to Expect
The company is expected to take off the wraps on several more devices, ranging from mobile phones and enhanced dongles along with a laptop and also a Wi Fi router.
Pixel and the Pixel XL
There have been several leaks regarding the next Nexus lineup of phones, namely the Pixel and the Pixel XL. The two phones will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon, 820 and will come with a RAM of 4 GB. This is in keeping with most of the other flagship phones on the market today. As for the camera, the phones will have a rear camera of 12 MP and a front camera of 8 MP. The native storage offered will be 32 GB. In addition, there is a possibility of a headphone jack on the top along with a USB C port found on the bottom of the devices.
The Pixel and the Pixel XL are expected to have similar specifications, though there are some differences. The Pixel will come with a 5-inch display of 1080 pixels and has a battery of 2770 mAh, whereas the XL will have a larger screen of 5.5 inches, with QHD display and a more powerful battery of 3450 mAh.
However, the two phones may not be very reasonably priced, with the basic Pixel model being sold at around $649. The two phones will also not come with waterproof features, which you normally expect at such a heavy price tag.
Expectations High – Other Releases
Inspite of the expected high cost of the two phones, fans are eagerly waiting to see the Google October 4th event. The other releases expected at the event are the Google Router for Wi Fi, which is similar to the On Hub. It will be priced at around $129 and offers guarantee for every corner of your home, with strong and steady signals. The debut of this Wi Fi Router is expected in the October 4th event.
Another thing that could turn heads on October 4th might be the Google Home, which was initially unveiled in the I/O conference that was held in May this year. It is a strong competitor to Echo from Amazon and functions in a similar way with a mic and Bluetooth speaker.
With the Ultra version, Google is taking the dongle-streaming device to the next level by offering support for 4 K. The dongle will now be more expensive and will cost more than Chromecast 2, probably at a price of around $69.
The VR platform was also initially mentioned in the I/O conference and some more information will probably be available in the 4th October event. Daydream has recently come out of beta and has been thrown open for developers recently.
