What to expect in the way of announcements?
The main event is around the PIXEL AND PIXEL XL
Both were manufactured at HTC (now owned by Google) and come in two sizes: The Pixel and Pixel XL will be largely identical, except for their size. The smaller Pixel is expected to have a 5-inch display, while the Pixel XL will have a phablet-class 5.5-inch screen.
The HOME device is the competitor to the Amazon Echo and will be a 2nd generation device with new updates. Android Police has reported that the Google Home will sell for $129, which is $50 less than Amazon’s full-size Echo, but $80 more than the smaller Echo Dot.
Chromecast will be getting an update next week, too. It’s reported that a Chromecast Ultra will be announced that will support 4K and HDR content and will sell for $69. That price is a bit more expensive than the standard Chromecasts, but given the Ultra’s higher-end capabilities.
According to Android Police: Google is reportedly going to announce a new, multi-point router system that will compete with Eero and similar routers that have come out this year.
