The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted several Tech Giants and delayed the launch of several products including Smartphones, IoT products, and more. Google is reportedly working on several new products that are expected to launch early this year but got delayed due to the pandemic. We’re anticipating the company to launch the Pixel 4a, Chromecast 4 aka Sabrina, a new Home smart speaker, and much more.
Google Expected Products
Google awaited Smartphone Pixel 4a is going to launch soon. The Pixel 4a will be the successor to the last year’s Pixel 3a. The Pixel 4a is going to do its global debut soon as it has already passed through the FCC in the US.
According to 9to5Google reports, the phone would come with a 5.81-inch OLED screen and is powered by octa-core Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730 processor with 6GB RAM. The smartphone is believed to boast a 3,080mAh battery, 12.2 MP single rear camera, and headphone jack. The smartphone is expected to be priced at just $349, undercutting Apple’s iPhone SE 2020.
2. Chromecast 4 (Sabrina)
The Google Chromecast 4 is on its way, as confirmed by a leaked video preview of Android 11. The streaming device, code-named Sabrina, is getting an overhaul. Not only will it have a stylish new look and a remote, but the Chromecast 4 (aka Sabrina) will also be the first Google-made Android TV device since the Nexus Player.
The new streaming dongle seems to be a fairly capable device with a low-latency gaming mode, HDMI 2.1, and with Dolby Vision support. And for the first time, the company will ship a dedicated media remote with the upcoming streaming dongle. A redesigned Android TV interface may also launch alongside the new Chromecast.
3. Pixel 5
Google Pixel 5 is months away from release, we already know a lot about the upcoming phone. Pixel 5 might not try to match the processing power of the best phones that Samsung and Apple have to offer. Instead, Pixel 5 is gonna be a camera smartphone possibly by adding more lenses.
Pixel 5 may not be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship chipset instead of the smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 768G processor. Early rumors also suggest that the Pixel 5 would sell for $649 as a starting price, a lot cheaper than the base price of the Pixel 4.
4. Revamped Google Home speaker
After a four-year run, the original Google Home has finally shuffled out of Google’s smart speaker lineup, and now comes word that a successor is likely on the way. Revamped Google Home speaker will provide a better sound quality, brand new design, and the new speaker will come at a steeper price tag. Rumors suggest that the price of the new speaker would be around $200.
