It seems that Google has a few more gadgets to display along with its rumored Pixel XL 2 and Pixel 2 handsets later this year. Sources report that the search major might roll out a couple of smart speakers and a new hybrid laptop as well.
It has been cited that the firm might reveal a fresh Pixel-branded Chromebook, which will be the heir of the device that was launched way back in 2015 along with the Nexus 5X ad the Nexus 6P. The search major is also claimed to roll out 2 small versions of its smart speaker, Google Home.
The report claims that the Chromebook Pixel might have been the result of the Project Bison that was rumored in 2106. Information about the gadget is sparse at this moment. The 2016’s report claimed that Project Bison (rumored laptop) will feature some heavy specifications such as 32 GB or 128 GB storage, 12.3-inch screen, an optional stylus, and 8 GB or 16 GB RAM. The laptop was also rumored to be less than 10mm broad. As for the costing, the search major was claimed to sell “Bison” with a price tag of $799.
There is not much data obtainable about the small version of the Google Home. On the other hand, the device is being rumored to go against the Amazon Echo Dot, which has a price tag of $129.
On a related note, the upcoming Google Pixel XL 2 was spotted operating on Android 8.0.1 on Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website. The listing also recommended that the Pixel heir will share a same technology similar to what we saw previously this year with the HTC U11. The technology is being rumored as “Active Edge” and will let consumers activate certain functions on the basis of the inputs collected by the side bezels that are touch sensitive.
In addition to this, the process of certification displays some of the screenshots from the forthcoming Settings page of the handset, suggesting it to feature 64 GB of in-built storage. It is worth stating here that this is a 1 storage variant that is missing from the Pixel XL and the Pixel. Both come in 128 GB and 32 GB in-built storage versions.
