We know that Google will be launching new Pixel smartphones this year, and now according to a report from the Nikkei Asian Review, they have detailed the hardware that Google could be launching this year which includes the Pixel smartphones, a budget Pixel smartphone that we have been hearing about for a while now, a new Google Home, and the Pixel Watch.
Like we said, a budget Pixel smartphone has been rumored about for a while now but it has yet to be officially confirmed. It was rumored to be launched last year but it did not materialize, which suggests that it could be launched this year as well. Specs and details about the phone in question are a bit scarce at the moment, but a more affordable Pixel could make it more appealing to customers who might have otherwise been put off by the price tag of the regular Pixel phones.
As for the Pixel Watch, this is also something we’ve been hearing about for a while now that has yet to officially debut. Given that Google has made Pixel branded smartphones, tablets, and Chromebooks, we suppose a Pixel Watch doesn’t seem like a stretch of the imagination. As for the Google Home, it is unclear if the upcoming Google Home will be an update to the existing lineup, or if it could be a new addition to the lineup.
Take it with a grain of salt for now, but with Google I/O taking place in the coming months, perhaps we’ll learn more about those devices soon.
