The Google Home app confirms the Google Home Mini before tomorrow's launch

Google Home Mini Leak

Google Home Mini Leak

The Pixel 2 and Google Home Mini will be announced in an October 4 Google event, which is just around the corner. Presumably, a careless search giant employee left his testing unit visible to nearby compatible gadgets while preparing its installation or performing some last-minute software inspections.

Like the Google Home Mini s the smaller version of Google Home, the Google Home Max will be its larger version.

Here's a look at some potential announcements that may come up during the event. Google, which a year ago brought Google Pixel, aimed to give a tough competition to Apple's iPhone but somehow couldn't achieve its objective, is once again ready to take the challenge ahead. The Pixel 2 XL is also expected to be IP67 certified, and come with HTC U11′s squeeze feature. The front camera is located on the left corner of the top bezel with a long earpiece which could also double as a stereo speaker.

However, the exciting thing is the bigger phone.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL has been doing rounds on the internet for a while now.

- Just like the recent iPhones, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are going to come without the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Pixel 2 will cost $US649 ($826) for the 64GB model or $US749 ($953) for the 128GB version, according to Droid Life. At least according to rumors. Further, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will be IP68 water and dust resistance. Pacific Time on Oct.4.

The event will kick off at 9pm EDT (9.30pm IST). Here's what we expect Google to show off at the event. Read on to find out. The Pixelbook is said to run on Chrome OS.

The next gen Pixel phone, Google Pixel 2 is the successor to the last year's Google Pixel.

The Google Pixelbook is listed as having a 12.3-inch display, but no information was given on the screen resolution. It also has a backlit keyboard and some kind of "convertible form factor" (a fold-back hinge?). The high-end notebook can fold into a tablet mode and will feature an optional Pixel Pen stylus. With it's launch later today, more details about the device have emerged. The assistant will change the way users have been using Chromebook. However, that isn't all.

Walmart just leaked a new Google device a day before its official unveiling. The pre-order listing on Walmart was taken offline quickly, but 9to5Google was able to download the images of both devices.

The Pixel 2 XL's raison d'être is in the name.

This is a small voice-assisted speaker running the Google Assistant. The new device is likely to compete with Amazon's Echo Dot, a pint-sized follow-up to the Amazon Echo smart speaker.

Finally, the new Daydream VR headset.

And finally, Google may have a few surprises up its sleeve for the October 4th event.

Both phones will ship with Android Oreo, that's a given.

The last year's DayDream View will get a refresh this year.
