With a five-inch, 1080p display, Pixel 2 is the smaller of the devices, featuring a screen whose aspect ratio is the formerly standard 16:9. The new device was requesting for a setup which hints that a Google employee might be testing the device ahead of the official rollout. It's all one piece of glass, unlike the mostly bump-free Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8. While other flagship phones come with dual cameras, but Google has made a decision to go with the single camera. But tomorrow's event bolsters Google's commitment to hardware and smartphones following the company's purchase of HTC's talent for more than $1 billion dollars. We have already heard that a premium laptop dubbed as Pixelbook is in the works, with a retail price tag more in line with the entry-level Apple MacBooks than with most Chromebook machines.
The box the Home Mini comes in is 11.5 x 11.5 x 12cm. It doesn't seem any other Pixelbook details were leaked through the reseller. It is expected to come with a stylus accessory that will retail separately at $100.
We recently saw reports suggesting that Google might have a new smart home device in the pipeline. The company launched two new Pixel smartphones previous year along with a smart speaker and virtual reality headset. But, now most of the focus of company is glued on the new Manhattan device. The devices will likely be available as a Verizon national carrier exclusive, and as an unlocked GSM model and through Google's Project Fi network.
This isn't the first leak for Google's upcoming slate of products.
