October is the month that major technology companies introduce their latest and (they hope) greatest devices. We’ve already heard from Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft; now it’s Google’s turn.
Leaks have been abundant, and so we’re expecting to be introduced to Google’s Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones. According to the info that has been bouncing around the internet, the phones will be missing the much-disliked notch, will include a square bump for the upgraded camera, face unlock, new gesture abilities, and a sleeker design. And what else? A next-gen Google Assistant? We’ll find out soon.
Meanwhile, rumors abound of other Pixel-branded products coming down the pike, such as new Pixel Buds to compete with all the other wireless earbuds being introduced this year, a new Pixelbook Chrome OS laptop, and an addition to the Nest brand of devices.
