  • Here's another look at Google Pixel 2 XL and Google Home Mini

The Google Pixel 2 showed in the leaked photo features thick upper and lower bezels, a screen that's more traditionally square than rounded, plus a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Walmart on Tuesday prematurely listed the Google Home Mini on its website but amended the situation in a relatively swift manner and has already pulled the early listing.

There is now no confirmed market release date for the devices, but the Pixel 2 is expected to sell at a starting price of $649, while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to sell at a starting price of $849. "That display should be an LG-made 6" 2,880x1,440 OLED, by the way. Given the success of Pixel a year ago, the follow-up should be better.

Elsewhere today's report also tells us a little more about the Pixelbook, which Google is likely pitching against Microsoft's Surface range. While the Google Pixel 2 will come with 5-inch Full HD Display.




Last month we heard through Droid-Life that the Google Pixelbook will be sold alongside a $99 stylus called the Pixelbook Pen, which will reportedly have pressure-sensitive and tilt support. They are identical, but they have the suffix of _b.png and happen to be correlated with a device referred to as "google-home-big". Furthermore, there are speculations that Google could also be introducing a larger and more premium models.

If the name is anything to go by, the Google Pixelbook is going to be a brand new Chromebook from Google itself.

Here's a brief look at three announcements that Google is expected to make during the event tomorrow. Exactly year later, the Mountain View-based technology company is prepping up to unveil the next iterations of its smartphones, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2. Assuming that is accurate, this will represent a decrease in size when compared to the Google Pixel models released in previous years; both of those were 12.85-inches.

Like always, Google will livestream the event on its official YouTube channel at 9AM Pacific Time.
