Google to Have Both Cheap and Pricy Offerings at Its Upcoming Event

September 22, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google will be launching its new range of Pixel smartphones and other devices within a fortnight. But ahead of that, it’s becoming clearer of the products that will get unfurled during the event.

The latest info comes courtesy of Droid Life, which has now revealed images of the new devices that will get launched on October 4. Those are of Pixel 2 XL, and the much-rumored tiny speakers of Google that will rival Echo Dot. The latter do have a name now, and it’s called Google Home Mini.

The Google Home Mini will be a tiny puck-shaped speaker that will be powered by Google Assistant like it was in the original Google Home speakers. Earlier predictions were that Google would go the Apple way by improving audio quality of their new speakers. But Google has just went the other way by ditching high-quality speakers in favor of more powered Google Assistant.

The output of the compromise can only be witnessed once it debuts. But we now know that those tiny new speakers won’t be able to change its coverings like it was possible with Google Home. So it’s all about what’s inside rather than what’s outside.

As with the Pixel XL successor, there has already been plenty of images circulating around. But the latest one gives a more clear view of the final product. Google will be introducing a blended variant of Pixel 2 with mix of white and black on the rear face.

Alongside, it will be having the black edition as well. There’s also bit of word about the pricing, with Pixel 2 XL said to be costing $849 for the 64GB variant and $949 for the 128GB. The smaller Pixel on the other hand will go on sale at $649 for 64GB variant and $749 for the 128GB variant. It will be featuring a new bluish gray variant along with the black and white variants.

The last of the lot is the new Daydream View headsets from Google. A new coral option has been induced upon the headset, with which the pricing has gone up by $20 to $99. Indeed, that’s not the only addition you get for that price bump, functional upgrades can be expected as well.
