Walmart accidentally leaks 2 Google surprises a day early


We've seen a number of leaks surrounding the new hardware that Google is scheduled to unveil at tomorrow's launch event. While we know it isn't a perfectly square device, we can assume the Home Mini will at least be about 10cm wide. Google Home Mini expected to be no different than its older sibling as far as basic functionalities are concerned.

Newly released leak reveals that Google will also be updating the home screen on the upcoming Pixel phones with much simpler and cleaner look.

Meanwhile, 9to5Google got its hands on another image of the Google Home Mini, which suggests that it will be powered by microUSB, as well as a picture of it alongside what is believed to be the Pixel 2 XL. This version is expected to be a successor to the Google Home with better features like stereo speakers.

Walmart actually published the pre-order page for the Google Home Mini a bit early than it was probably supposed to, and the company pulled the page quickly. Now the leakster has posted another set of images which include both Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL.

"I'd expect the new Pixel smartphones to showcase what is possible with Google's latest software (like Oreo OS, Google Assistant, Google Lens)". We have heard that a PixelBook is in the works with the pricing around entry-level MacBooks. Chromebook fans are already looking forward to the launch of a new product in the series; its pricing could be a game changer. Google will likely reveal all the details about this model tomorrow at its big event. To recall, even last year's Pixel phones shipped with VR support.

Coming to the pricing, Pixel 2 is expected to be priced at $650/$750 while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to be priced at $850/$950.

Google is full of surprises, so one can never be sure what tricks it has up its sleeves. It's unclear if more storage will be coupled with more RAM. 91mobiles will be present at the launch event on October 4th, so stay tuned for live updates.

This time around, Google's hardware foray has been measured.
