We have less than a week until we finally get to see what Google has to offer with its October 4th event. If you are following the news though, you already know that there have been several leaks ahead of the event and most recently, more hardware from the company’s upcoming event have been leaked. The latest leaks contain a smart speaker called Google Home Max and the other one is another phone named Ultra Pixel.
While it’s not known whether we will see second generation Google Home speaker anytime soon, Google is apparently planning on increasing its lineup. Earlier in September, details regarding Google Home mini leaked and latest leaks have suggested that the company might be working on bringing another high-end model called the Google Home Max. this latest product is set to compete with other similar high-end speakers such as those offered by Amazon and Apple’s upcoming HomePod. This latest leak comes after Amazon introduced its second generation Echo speaker along with Echo Spot and Echo Plus speakers.
As for the smartphone, it seems that Google will increase its offerings by a smartphone. While the leaked images are pretty unbelievable, it won’t be surprising if the company decides to extend its smartphone lineup by launching the Ultra Pixel alongside Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL.
While last several years have seen bezel less displays, if the leak is accurate, then the upcoming smartphone will feature no bezel at all. The smartphone is rumored to feature dual cameras and a new fingerprint scanner embedded into the screen of the phone. There have been a lot of rumors in the past regarding such fingerprint scanner and it will be interesting to see if Google decides to include such scanner in the upcoming smartphone.
As with all the rumors, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt as they can be pretty misleading at times. However, ahead of iPhone 8’s release, the leaks were pretty accurate and we will have to wait just few more days to find out if Google indeed introduces these two products.
