Fall has a tendency to bring new equipment from Google, which principally includes new Nexus cell phones worked pair with OEM accomplices. This year, things could be entirely distinctive since Google has various equipment ventures in progress, and the Nexus brand is purportedly being supplanted with a Pixel-badged line of cell phone gadgets.
All will be revealed on October 4, according to a new report from the generally reliable Android Police. At an event dedicated to hardware on that day, the Android-maker will reveal two Pixel phones, one called Pixel and one called Pixel XL, which will be 5-inch and 5.5-inch phones respectively. These will be HTC-built devices, according to the publication, which is different from other Pixel hardware, including the Chromebook Pixel and Pixel C tablet, whose design is handled in-house by Google itself.
Other hardware set to get show time at this event include the Google Home smart speaker, which the company showed off at I/O this past May, and a headset for Daydream VR created in-house. Daydream VR was also part of I/O’s announcements, and is the VR platform built into Android Nougat available to all Android smartphones that meet its minimum hardware specs.
