What to expect
Google has already sent out invitations to its annual hardware event, which takes place a little earlier than usual in mid-October. In addition to 5G smartphones, the event is expected to showcase Google’s new Chromecast and Nest Home speakers.
According to the WinFuture rumors website, we can expect the upcoming Pixel 5 to have a 90Hz display, IP68 water resistance, and a fingerprint sensor on the back instead of an in-display sensor. The Pixel 5 will likely only be available in one size this year, and the smart money is assuming the phone’s display will be 6 inches. WinFuture also says the Pixel 5 will feature a dual-sensor camera that includes a wide-angle camera with a 107-degree field of view and an aperture of f / 2.2 and supports 4K video at 60 frames per second and 1080p video at 240 fps. The price is expected to be $ 699.
In addition to the flagship phone, Google will most likely also launch a larger Pixel 4a 5G that will replace the flagship XL model. This display is expected to offer a 90 Hz refresh rate instead of the 120 Hz refresh rate found on some high-end Samsung phones. Google has already announced that the Pixel 4a 5G will cost $ 499.
Chromecast with Google TV
Google’s updated Chromecast streaming media player, codenamed Sabrina, will be announced along with the new phones. The new Chromecast will likely use the same HDMI dongle form factor that Google has used for its current Chromecast models. If some of the recent rumors are true, the device will be a bit longer and a new color list will be available. Another key difference is that the Android TV operating system is integrated into the new model and a remote control is included. The price range is expected to be in the vicinity of $ 50 to $ 60.
Google Nest Home
The Launch Night In event will also feature the new Nest Home smart speaker, which has a longer, flatter design and is larger than the original Google Home. More features are yet to be announced, but the speaker is expected to cost around $ 120.
