Walmart leaks the Google Home Mini and Pixel 2 XL yet again

Walmart leaks the Google Home Mini and Pixel 2 XL yet again”

The company's streaming the announcement live on YouTube, asking prospective viewers to "Come check out a few new things made by Google". The design is very exhausted but some may prefer the smaller phone.

Reports indicate that the Pixel 2 is manufactured by HTC, while the Pixel 2 XL is manufactured by LG. The big advantage of going Google is that you inevitably get the first bite of the new operating systems when they emerge.

The Pixelbook which will be convertible will come with a 12.3-inch display.

Are you excited for the new Google Pixel 2? It's all one piece of glass, unlike the mostly bump-free Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

Google's big fall hardware event is shaping up to be exciting.

The box the Home Mini comes in is 11.5 x 11.5 x 12cm.

The listing was created by reseller Synnex, and has details about the new Chromebook Pixel as well as the Clips. The company launched two new Pixel smartphones a year ago along with a smart speaker and virtual reality headset. The Google Home Mini is set to have all the same functionality as the full sized Google Home without the decent speaker.

A leaked images also shows that the Pixel 2 will keep its thick bezels at the top and bottom of the device whilst the Pixel 2 XL appears to have an nearly edge-to-edge screen.

Coming to the other specs, the devices are expected to feature Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64/128GB of storage.

We'll find out more tomorrow but a new, and cheaper, smart speaker would make sense especially with Amazon announcing its new range of Echo devices. The original Pixel and Pixel XL handsets designed and sold by the search giant, and billed it as the best premium smartphone in the Android ecosystem. Google is expected to unveil a refreshed Daydream VR headset - Daydream View 2, priced at $99.

This time around, Google's hardware foray has been measured. This version is expected to be a successor to the Google Home with better features like stereo speakers. In Google's case, it looks like we're looking at an 18:9 display - or 2,560 x 1,312 for the 5.6in model.
