Google will soon organize a virtual meeting, at which several new products will be announced. We have already listed the expectations.
Google Pixel 5
The Google presentation will take place on September 30 at 8 p.m. Dutch time. This time it is a digital event to prevent contamination with the corona virus.
Google has not yet officially released anything about the planned announcements, but several products have leaked in recent months. This article lists the most likely rumors.
The focus is probably on the Google Pixel 5, a new smartphone that Google makes itself. Phones with Google’s Android operating system are usually made by other manufacturers.
The latest Pixel device is said to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip and also support 5G internet. The 6-inch screen refreshes at 90 frames per second.
A larger battery should make the phone usable for longer than previous Pixel devices. According to rumors, the device will be sold for 629 euros. An announcement is very likely: new Pixel models are often presented around this time of year.
Google already unveiled its Pixel 4a device last summer, which is sold as a middle class for a slightly lower amount. Then the phone maker said that a new variant will be presented in the fall that also supports 5G.
It therefore seems likely that the Pixel 4a 5G will be discussed during the presentation. Presumably the specifications are identical to the previously presented phone.
The arrival of a new Chromecast is now an open secret. A store in the United States accidentally sold it before the official reveal, after which many details and images appeared online.
The new model is structured differently from the previous Chromecasts. This time the device runs on Android TV and it is possible to install apps such as Netflix and YouTube directly. For the first time, a remote control is also included.
The new Chromecast supports Dolby Digital sound and the game streaming service Stadia. The device is sold for 50 dollars, which is more than 40 euros.
