October 4, which is next week, is a
big major day for Android fans. Not only will Google be unveiling its new lineup of Pixel smartphones (Pixel and Pixel XL), but we suspect Google will also make available the following products: Google Home (powered by Google Assistant), Google WiFi, its Daydream headset for VR fans, as well as a 4K-ready Chromecast Ultra dongle.
While you may think that the Pixel devices are easily the most significant announcements coming, I would argue that Google Home and a 4K-ready Chromecast device might give them a run. The Pixel phones will be exciting for a bit, but the idea of Google bringing Google Assistant into everyone’s home via Google Home is a bit more tantalizing, especially when we’ve heard rumors about its $129 price.
Also, we know for a fact that Chromecast has been one of Google’s most successful products, and with the dongle getting a boost up to 4K capability, that could be very exciting for anyone using a 4K panel in their living room.
Let’s hear what has you the most excited for next week.
