Google Home Speaker – Redone
The real Google Home speaker, which is not between us now, might be handy this year with its successor. In the US, the Home Speaker is not in use, Google has stepped out from selling smart speakers of mid-range in the market. We hold options to pick a few models that come with displays. But even then also, it’s hard to accept the Nest Home squad with no successor to the original Home speaker of 2016.
Supremely versatile and wildly smarter in its usage, Google Home is a robust smart speaker. It is not linked with the service of Google as we expect and the Google Home holds some room to enhance audio quality, but since its launch, it has covered a long way. It clutches a customizable base, huge song library, and expands the hardware ecosystem. Being one of the most famed smart speakers on the globe, the Google Home has rolled a number of smart speakers in a wide range, embracing the Google Home Hub and Google Home Mini. A few days back, Google Home speakers have experienced a name change; and the new Google speakers lie under the Google Nest mantle, embracing the Google Nest Mini and Google Nest Hub Max.
An upcoming product of Google, Pixel 4a will launch reportedly soon. It will take the place of Pixel 3a, which was rolled out in the previous year. In the US, the Pixel 4a has been approved by FCC, which states that only days are left to welcome the Pixel 4a for its debut, globally. In the gone days, in April, it was reported that the phone will be approaching holding:
- Screen: 5.81 Inch OLED
- Preprocessor: Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 730
- RAM: 6GB
- Battery: 3,080 mAh
- Camera: Single, 12.2 MP
- Headphone Jack
The Pixel 4a doesn’t require to be revolutionary, only a robust update on the Pixel 3a. If Goole’s game is safe, its next attempt into the mid-range handset market would, undoubtedly, perform well again.
Though there exist a few months between the Google Pixel 5 and its launch, we are all already set with its anticipated features. According to some presumptions, Pixel 5 will not look similar to Pixel 4, as it will catch up with a complete makeover holding a new and refreshing design language. Various escapes also make us point towards the mid-range processor with an opposing attitude towards Qualcomm’s flagship chipset. Right now, we can envision the Pixel 5 to be backed by a Snapdragon 768G processor. Anticipate it to promote a recrafted camera module, by the side of an ultra-wide-angle lens.
Last year, the success of Pixel 3a and the soon arrival of the Pixel 4a should assist in defining a better place for the Pixel 5. Despite being a phone that’s close to Galaxy S/Note and iPhone devices, the Pixel 5 can place itself as a perfect competitor to well-positioned handsets.
Google Pixel 6
Google is all set with the new Pixel 6 smartphone, which is unique in the crowd because of its new custom processor, new design, and camera system. It runs on Google’s new Tensor processor. It’s a custom-designed chip, stating that even if a third party manufactures it, only Google will design it. Its concept is akin to the A-series processors that are in Apple’s iPhone.
On the Pixel 6 series, the Tensor processor doesn’t hold any confirmed specifications. According to Google’s declaration, the Pixel 6 would be the smartest, fastest, and most secure Pixel phone ever.

Tensor – A Google Chip
Tensor is Google’s first custom-developed SoC, especially for Pixel phones. The primary purpose of developing Tensor was to know how people use their phones today and in the future.
Tensor is centered on the AI-boosting TPU that ensures improving photos and videos, captioning, search, text-to-speech, and more. As an increasing number of features are powered by AI and ML, it is not just about appending more computing resources; it’s also about utilizing that ML to know specific experiences from Pixel users.
Nest & Home Devices
Google has encapsulated Nest and Google Home, both into the Nest brand, building the Nest all relevant to home. The device that’s still in the queue to be inside the original Google Home, an updated version of the original Home speaker of Google could be likely to struggle for the Amazon Echo’s growth.
The cool things apart, Google Home and Google Nest smart speakers hold the caliber to report the weather. Being capable to attain a reliable, accurate weather on-demand forecast, just by asking it, is just amazing. Moreover, we can ask Google Home for UV Index, Air Check, Sunrise and sunset, and more. Skipping all, it also offers direct advice, as we can ask for dress suggestions for today and more.

Nest Cam with Floodlight
Google hasn’t leaked much about this new device. But, according to its predecessors and peers, the Google Nest Cam with floodlight will emerge with features similar to the new Nest along with its robust floodlights on every side of the camera. As per Google’s Nest Page, it may demand a wired connection.
Google has brought a new version of wireless earbuds to compete with Amazon’s Airpods. Google Pixel Buds are small, handy, comfortable, and provide good sound quality suitable for listening to music, video streaming, and calls. It also comes with a large enough battery to use Pixel Buds for at least 4 to 5 hours.
The launch of Pixel Buds was previously announced in October 2019 and recently launched the product in April. Google has managed to create an astonishing & compact design of the case of the earbuds as well as for the Pixel buds. The hardware quality is excellent, earbuds are small which makes them easy to use for longer periods and Google periodically launches firmware updates to improve the audio quality. So, overall Google Pixel buds are one of the best products they have launched till now.
Chromecast 4 aka Sabrina
In 2020, Google is all set with its arrangement to reveal the next-generation Chromecast. Even, before its birth, we have already got much on our ears about Sabrina, which is its code tag. Chromecast, an Android-based dongle, would be mostly distinct from the current Chromecast Ultra if we follow the rumors. The new streaming dongle is likely to be a device holding a fair caliber with HDMI2.1, low-latency gaming mode, and Dolby Vision pillars. And, for the very first time, Google will send a dedicated media remote along with the soon-to-come streaming dongle. A redesigned Android TV interface may also roll out with the new Chromecast.
“Sabrina”, the name might be awfully odd, but we need not worry, as this is just an internal codename for the product that means that it’ll be tagged something else once it gets out for sale. Not sure, but it can be “Nest TV” or “Pixel TV” or something else.
Launched in 2019, a big cloud gaming service of Google, Stadia is early in this platform. But, this year Google will start unfolding Satadia free base service to expand its roots as Google attempts to make it accessible widely. We would anticipate incentives, more games, and integration with other platforms as it will soon compete with the new Play Station 5 & the new Xbox for attention. As per the leaks, we can say, in 2020, we will witness the unfolding of more than 120 new games.
Wear OS and Wearables
Well, the Wear OS has been slowed these days from the same manufacturers from the flood of devices to a flow. Wear OS device, a Pixel Watch has been sailing in the rumors for a couple of years, which was canceled last year. Wear OS offers a feel, such as a platform from where the hardware division of Google is absent. But, a thought is just going around us, that Google is expected to spin on wearables, strengthening the purchase of Fitbit to attract smarter fitness devices employing Google AI to sports fans.
First released in 2014, this time it has arrived with a new name and new design. The platform is crafted to run the apps, deliver the notifications, and permit the users to keep them going with their digital lives, from their watch. Google’s wearable platform, Wear OS is sketched to run on watches. Based on an improved version of Android, it’s designed by OS and employed on various 3rd party smartwatches.
Officially, Google has invited time on Android tablets, so it’s now worth witnessing Chrome OS like the platform for Google tablets moving ahead. Still, Chrome OS has some hurdles that need to be cleared, as it’s not capable of controlling things, such as various accounts for the same user, as Android does, anywhere. But, with the helping hand of Android apps, Chrome is now sensed to be a more competitive proposition.
A Chromebook is necessarily a laptop that we use chiefly when we are online, and save files onto. Via Google’s Chrome browser, we perform nearly everything, like spreadsheet-eyeballing, word processing, note-taking, and more. This reveals that Chromebook doesn’t hold much storage and also doesn’t need a specifically fast processor that makes it very cheap as compared to normal computers. Chromebooks run Chrome OS, a Linux-based OS, a stripped-back OS that goes around the Chrome browser.
The Chromebook turns on in seconds and is also not immune to viruses or malware. Chromebook is perfectly smooth and holds less hunger for resources as compared to laptops. Apps that are designed for Chrome are easy on resources and feature-rich, so the whole experience is fluid and speedy.
A Pixelbook is an advanced and high-performance version of Google Chromebook. The Pixelbook Go comes with a 16:9 ratio 13.3-inch display with a touch screen that offers an HD or 4K display. The memory specifications are also good as it includes RAM up to 16GB and storage of up to 256GB. The processor used in basic models is an Intel Core M3 chip and the higher end comes with an Intel i7 processor. Another great thing is that it provides a battery usage time of around 12 hours.
In 2020, this is going to be a center of attraction. In the previous year, we witnessed, the small but significantly huge detail, that now, Google Assistant has attained its voice processing on the device, despite being in the cloud. It’s vital for privacy and also lowers down latency and demands because the AI of Google becomes more sophisticated. As things pace up and the need for holding a connection diminishes, we are going to see enhanced local processing driving it to be more accessible for the one who is in developing countries, or is on limited data plans. In 2020, Google Assistant will be smarter and it will soon be found in more devices.
