Made by Google” will be the tagline on the upcoming event of Google on October 4, the company is expected to launch a wide range of new hardware. Below are the few expected release from Google.

1. Daydream VR :

Virtual reality is one of the fastest growing technologies at the moment. Google plans to go beyond Google Cardboard and leave a mark with its new Daydream VR platform. It’s expected that Google will showcase Daydream VR running on its new hardware. Google has also confirmed that it’s working on its own headset and controller.

2. Google Home :

We all know about the Amazon Echo, and now Google will compete with it by launching Google Home. It’s like Google Now for your home. It’ll activate with “OK Google” prompt and let you interact with different home automation systems.

3. Google Wi-Fi :

A new Wi-Fi device named Google Wi-Fi is going to be released. The reports suggest that it’ll let you mesh multiple networks and enjoy a better internet connection. It’ll be similar to previously released OnHub router. Google Wi-Fi is expected to feature dual band and 2 ports, AC1200 speeds, Bluetooth, and 802.15.4 radios.

4. Pixel and Pixel XL phones :

A competitor of Nexus is coming by the name of Pixel-branded smartphones, Google will leave behind the Nexus brand. The media reports suggest that Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones will be manufactured by HTC. Pixel, the smaller of the two phones, will feature a 5-inch display. Pixel XL will come with a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display. They are expected to run Android N and offer support for Google Daydream VR platform.

5. New Pixel tablet :

As per the tweet of the renowned phone leaker Evan Blass, Google is looking to release a Huawei-made tablet that’ll feature a 4GB RAM.

6. Andromeda OS :

Just like, Nexus is having a competitor, in the same way Chrome OS is also having a competitor, the name of an OS is Andromeda.

Andromeda will be an Android + Chrome OS hybrid. Andromeda would have Chrome OS features stuffed into Android.

Now, the October 4 event is expected to mark the official debut of this merger in the form of a new OS named Andromeda. We expect it to follow the open source philosophy.

7. Pixel 3 Laptop :

Pixel 3 laptop will come in an ultrabook form factor, featuring Intel processors, 32GB/128GB storage, 8GB/16GB RAM, and a battery life of 10 hours. It’s also possible that Google might skip the Pixel 3 launch and unveil it next year.

However, the feature which I’m waiting for is Andromeda OS, Daydream VR, and Google Home.
