Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixelbook, Home Mini & New Daydream View All Leaked Ahead of October 4 Event
Google has been teasing some big reveals for October 4. However, it looks like they’ve been beaten to the punch, with five of their upcoming products leaking.
The reputable site Droid Life has delivered a megaton, sharing images and details of what appear to be the new Pixel 2 cellphone, a new 2-in-1, and more. Read on for the full breakdown.
Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL
The Pixel 2 will be available with either 64GB or 128GB of storage, priced at $649 and $749, respectively.
The Pixel 2 XL will offer the same storage capacities, though contained in a larger body and with presumably superior internals. It will retail for $849 (64GB) and $949 (128GB).
Both phones rock some funky new colors, with the gray-blue Pixel 2 and two-tone black and white Pixel 2 XL standing out the most.
The Google Pixelbook is a new, premium Chromebook solution. It will be a 2-in-1, useful as both a laptop and tablet. It will also be compatible with a new Pixelbook Pen, which is rumored to be pressure sensitive, with tilt support and no lag.
A premium device comes with a premium price. Prices start at $1,199 for the 128GB model. You’ll then be looking at $1,399 for 256GB and $1,749 for 512GB. Oh, and that pen? Yeah, that’ll be another $99.
Powered by Google Assistant, the Home Mini will help with keeping up with schedules, reciting the latest news headlines, and answering any burning questions the user has. Virtual home assistants are nothing new at this point, but Google is looking to make its variant a little more fun-sized.
Home Mini will be priced at just $49, and will come in chalk, charcoal, and coral colors.
Daydream View 2.0
Google’s Daydream View also appears to be getting a refresh. The $20 price increase, coming to a total of $99, appears to be due to a more rugged construction. It still looks to make virtual reality a comfortable experience, using soft materials and an easy-to-use remote.
Color-wise, there’s charcoal, fog, and that weird orange “coral” again.
