What to Expect – Google’s Big Pixel 2 Event
Google’s big fall event is tomorrow, and it’s going to have important news for anyone who cares about Android, smartphones, Chromebooks and anything else Google can figure out how to puts its digital assistant in. Here’s what to expect: *Pixel 2: The second-gen “Made by Google” phones are back:* The new Pixels, dubbed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, are clearly going to be the stars of the show. Based on leaked photos, Google’s 5.5 and 6-inch phones sport a classier, more elegant take on last year’s Pixel design, and include new features like IP-67 water-resistance and dual front-facing speakers. *Google Home: A new mini Home and maybe a Max:* ????:http://v.duta.us/uZS0iAAA With a rumored price of just $49 and a smaller, cuter design, it should make for a decent alternative to anyone thinking about buying an Echo Dot. *Chromebook: Google Loves Its Pricey Chrome OS laptops:* ????:http://v.duta.us/tlLZuAAA The twist for 2017 is that the Pixelbook will be a 2-in-1 thanks to a 360-degree hinge, and that it will feature built-in handwriting recognition and even an $99 optional Pixelbook Pen. *Virtual Reality: A refreshed Daydream headset:* ????:http://v.duta.us/QHgw5QAA Google has prepped a refreshed version of its VR headset with a tweaked design and new colour options.
