Google's annual developer conference will kick off tomorrow, May 7th, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View and we expect the company to come with a hoard of surprises up its sleeves.
This year at Google I/O 2019 Keynote, we can expect new smartphones, smart devices, next Android Q developer preview, new features for Google Assistant, and perhaps more announcements related to Google Stadia or the self-driving auto Waymo.
These are some of the possible announcements for the upcoming Google I/O 2019 conference.
Last year, Google said that it's working on Android improvements that would allow the software to work better on foldable phones. Upgrades of Google's other operating systems, ChromeOS and WearOS, are also on the docket. According to 9to5Google, the new device is described as a larger version of the Google Home with a built-in camera for calls on Google's Duo, a service launched in 2016 that's similar to Apple Inc.'s Facetime.More news: Emperor vows to stand with the people
The display sizes will vary between 5.6 and 6-inches, but with thick bezels on the top and bottom, I wouldn't expect them to feel any compact. The phones could be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset, which could be paired with 4 GB RAM. To add to these leaks, official renders and ads of the Pixel 3a and 3a XL have surfaced online. Based on what we've seen so far, it looks like Google plans to offer the new devices at a competitive mid-range price point, with mid-range specs.
As a Nest product (and because it has a built-in camera), it's also very likely that the Hub Max will take on home security features that the camera-less Home Hub is simply incapable of. It's possible that I/O will see another demo of Stadia with more specific information on the consumer launch.
That's not to say tech leaks are only happening to Google.
Google's Pixels have only been sold directly by one of the "big four" United States carriers for years - we mean Verizon. The second beta was more developer focused and didn't bring much to end users. The severity of these were mostly considered to be "high" by Google, although there were a few listed as being "critical". While this is a price of the 6GB model, Google is also expected to sell a 4GB RAM version with 32GB storage and we can expect the phone to sell for a cheaper price.
