What will Google announce at its October event?
Google Pixel 2
An HTC-made 5.6in Android phone with a squeezable frame. With prices starting at £649, it will include the Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a single-lens camera and USB-C audio. Pixel 2 will be one of the first phones to run Android Oreo, complete with an enhanced Google Assistant.
Google Pixel 2 XL
An £849 flagship phablet featuring a 5.99in 18:9 Quad-HD display. Built by LG the screen will be a highlight, but the spec is also on point with the Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and USB-C audio. Oreo and the intelligent Google Assistant will also feature.
Google Home Mini
A £49 rival to Amazon’s Echo Dot and a smaller version of the original Google Home, but just as clever. The Mini will lack some of the audio musclepower of the full-size Google Home, but you’ll be able to hook up a portable speaker over Bluetooth or AUX.
Don’t expect another cheap Chromebook from Google – this is a premium £1,199 notebook with some high-end specs, including 128- or 256GB solid-state storage. An optional Pixelbook Pen stylus will cost an additional £99.
Daydream View 2
A £99 follow-up to Google’s original VR headset, we’ve yet to hear what improvements it will bring.
