Google Home Mini Walmart Listing Goes Up Prematurely

Google Home Mini Walmart Listing Goes Up Prematurely

These "b" images have been replaced with a single black pixel in the latest version of the Google Home app. We've seen the Pixel 2 XL in a case yesterday (and from the front), then both the Pixel 2 and its bigger sibling got the press render treatment. Overall, the design isn't a dramatic departure from the Pixels of previous year, but the Pixel 2 XL deserves more points here because its display looks a little more polished and modern than its smaller Pixel 2 sibling. The new device was requesting for a setup which hints that a Google employee might be testing the device ahead of the official rollout.

There is now no confirmed market release date for the devices, but the Pixel 2 is expected to sell at a starting price of $649, while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to sell at a starting price of $849. It could also be an AR or VR accessory for the new smartphones, like a detachable camera. Google should improve the last year's camera on the Pixel, so expect this smartphones to win honors in that regard and go head-to-head with the recently-launched iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on camera quality as well as Galaxy Note 8's.

Google's big fall hardware event is shaping up to be exciting. Thanks to Walmart we now know a little more.

According to leaks, the upcoming Pixelbook will sport a flexible metal body and it will allow users to switch between the tablet and laptop mode. There are a number of rumors that the stylus pen will retail for around $100 separately.

Asked how he survived for this long, the officer said, "Najar would keep on changing his appearance and would use wigs and move around meekly".

The listing was taken down very quickly after it was spotted, but people had read and saved all the major details about the Google Home Mini as well as the Pixel XL 2. The new smart speaker is said to be premium in terms of both design and build material. The Google Home Mini is set to have all the same functionality as the full sized Google Home without the decent speaker.

A few hours back, popular leakster Evan Blass leaked the Google Pixel 2 XL frontal.

Coming to the other specs, the devices are expected to feature Snapdragon 835 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64/128GB of storage.

"Google's positioning in the smartphone space is still unclear and there is a good reason for that: it can't compete too directly with handset brands using Android in the high-end segment", Thomas Husson, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester, told IANS. The Mini is apparently created to fulfil a gap in some people's homes where they feel a full series of $200AUD speakers isn't particularly feasible - a Google Home in every room? Unfortunately, that speaker isn't expected to actually be announced until tomorrow.
