Here's another look at Google Pixel 2 XL and Google Home Mini

Always On Display is not listed, but given that both the screen and Android 8.0 Oreo support it, we think its more than likely.

Google is going to unveil its next line-up of Pixel smartphones in a few hours from now at the Pixel event in San Francisco.

The product is still believed to be in the development stage and it could be some time before it's made available to the public.

Here's another look at Google Pixel 2 XL and Google Home Mini

Great googly moogly! Google is expected to update nearly all of its hardware product lines in a massive blitz at 9 a.m. PT/noon ET. We will have their official specs and pricing later tonight, so stay tuned. The handset is said to come with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the screen for protection from scratches. It's possible, however, that the 3:2 aspect ratio and 2,560x1,700 resolution will be carried over. Not having to top up your phone after work, or avoiding the panic of needing an outlet at the end of the night is just about priceless. It packs 3520 mAh battery but there was no mention of wireless charging.

The handsets are expected to start rolling out globally on November 15th, although country-specific launch dates could be different.

Hardware design seems to take a backseat to software in the Google universe. In one slide, the image of a smartphone is captioned "Ultra Pixel". Squeezing the bezels of the Pixel 2 will trigger pre-set or programmable actions.

All of these changes come with the new version of the Google Home app, and if you don't want to wait around for the update to hit the Google Play Store, you can download the APK file. According to reports, Walmart store carried a teaser for Home Mini and took it off immediately.

Amazon recently expanded its virtual-assistant offerings, announcing in late September upgraded versions of the Echo for US$100 (RM422) and "Echo Plus" for US$150 (RM633), along with the new "Echo Spot" for US$130 (RM549).

You can hook it up various smart electronics around your house, such as your TV (via Chromecast), Philips Hue lights, the Nest thermostat, Samsung SmartThings, Belkin Wemo and Honeywell devices, and control them simply by speaking.

According to the latest rumours, Google could introduce a new pair of headphones designed specifically to work with the talkative A.I. assistant. Same as the first generation Daydream headset, the Daydream View headset also comes with a Motion Controller and expected to retail for $69 in the US. It is likely to come in three colour variants charcoal, coral and fog with a nylon fabric finish.

While there is not much new here it makes you wonder if Australian carriers will follow suit as they did previous year.
