Google will launch the Pixel 4 and other hardware on October 15 in New York

It’s official: Google will reveal its next-generation Google Pixel phone on October 15 at an event in New York City. The event is expected to serve as the launchpad for the Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL, but it’s possible it could announce other devices too — with some rumors hinting at new Google Home speakers and a Pixelbook 2.

When it comes to the Pixel 4, little has been left up to the imagination. The device has been leaked extensively, and those leaks show a slightly new design with a square camera bump similar to the iPhone 11, as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 6GB of RAM, and more. The device will also feature Google’s Project Soli technology, which will enable intuitive gesture controls and high-end facial recognition that could rival the iPhone’s. Alongside the Pixel 4, it’s expected that Google will launch a larger version called the Pixel 4 XL, as it has done in past years.

Google has said in the past that it’s working on a follow-up to the Google Pixelbook. Last year, the company launched the Pixel Slate, which largely failed to live up to expectations. Not much is known about the next-gen Pixelbook, but leaks indicate that the device will showcase some tweaks to the Chrome OS operating system, and offer a nice big display with a high resolution, thin bezels, fast charging, and more. These features could make it one of the best Chromebooks ever, especially if it offers a nice design and excellent keyboard, like the original Google Pixelbook. Rumors indicate that the device will sport a clamshell design — unlike the 2-in-1 design of the original Pixelbook.

Apart from that, it’s possible that the company could launch a new set of Google Home speakers, which will likely now fall under the Nest name. It’s possible that the company could, for example, launch a follow-up to the original Google Home and the Google Home Mini, as both of these speakers are now a few years old at least.

Digital Trends has been sent an invitation to the event and will be covering all the latest Google hardware as it’s revealed.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) -- $220, was $249

Nomad’s hefty new MagSafe charger will stay exactly where you put it
The Nomad Stand One in carbide.

Tired of your wireless charger making its own way around the desk or bedside table? The way lightweight pads can slip around, seemingly with a will of their own, can be frustrating. That’s why you need Nomad’s new Stand One.

This metal and glass MagSafe charger weighs 613 grams, or just over 1 pound. It’s unlikely to shift about without quite a lot of encouragement. It's likely a bit overkill, but is there anything really wrong with that?
