  • Amazon's Latest Devices: New Threats to Google, Apple, Microsoft?

Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini, Google Pixelbook, and a fresh Daydream VR headset are practically a lock at this point.

Google's big fall hardware event is shaping up to be exciting.

We are just 24 hours away from Google's much-awaited Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL launch event.

The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL is about to remedy the fatal flaw that left my original Pixel XL vulnerable, broken and hobbled for snapping photos.

The Centrio News reported the specs for the new set of smartphones, which look like some massive enhancements. Rumours also suggest it should be water resistant too. The bottom visibly houses a USB Type-C port. Up front is supposedly a bit curved across the edges and stereo speakers. "I think Google's hardware move is more interesting when it comes to new form factors and post-smartphone experiences", Husson said. It lists the display as 12.3-inches, down from 12.9-inches on the current Chromebook Pixel.

Google also made some changes to the Pixel interface. One topline feature you need to know about is that the Pixel 2 XL has a screen-to-body ratio of around 80% to 85% - placing it in the same category as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

The inventory page also details 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities, which is the same as what was leaked by Droid-Life last month. The event begins at 3am so if you decide to sleep instead check in here at Ausdroid when you wake up as we will every single piece of information you may want, including local release information if available.

Here's the skinny: the new Google Home app has several new images to show the new Google Home devices in the Home app.

Design-wise, Google Home Mini is expected to compete with the likes of Amazon's Echo Dot, which is a part of the company's existing line-up of Echo smart speakers.

The online retailer announced last week that it was refreshing its lineup of speakers with its updated Echo now starting from just £89.99. Today, Walmart mistakenly leaked some new pictures of the Google Home Mini and the Pixel 2 XL. But this one will reportedly cost an extra $99, same price as to the Apple Pencil.

This isn't the first leak for Google's upcoming slate of products.
