How to Change Your Google Assistant Voice

Apple couldn't keep the iPhone X, one of its biggest products in years, a surprise ahead of the launch event.

Just a day before its launch, serial tipster Evan Blass had leaked pictures of the purported devices.

That resolution matches the LG G6, suggesting that the Pixel 2 XL will have an 18:9 super widescreen aspect ratio like that phone. With the second generation Pixel devices, Google will look to make a much greater impact than it managed to past year. Some of the devices rumoured to launch later today have been doing rounds on the internet for quite some time now. These include Pixel smartphone successors, a new VR headset and a new speaker as well. You can tap the blue speaker icon to hear a the voices before selecting one.

The new specs list claims that the Pixel 2 XL will have three mics with noise cancellation. This feature for now is only available in HTC U11. "Pixel 2 will feature a 4.97" full HD, Always-On display with regular-sized bezels.

The Google Pixel could be touted as one of the best smartphones released past year. Also, these new phones could also feature squeezable sides like the HTC U11 for launching Google Assistant and other apps. And a fresh leak from Best Buy Canada reveals more details about Pixel 2 preorders. There is a high possibility though, as the mini smart speaker would be the ideal bonus to get customers to purchase the Pixel 2.

Last of the biggies, Google, will be unveiling its flagship smartphones tonight. There might be changes made on the inside. The report points out that this Pixelbook Pen will have tilt support and carry a price tag of $99. The device will go head-on against Amazon's Echo Dot.

A purported product inventory for an online reseller called Synnex shows the mystery product name alongside the new Pixelbook laptop and Google Home Mini. The handset is said to come with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on top of the screen for protection from scratches. Google Home Mini expected to be no different than its older sibling as far as basic functionalities are concerned.

Another exciting device that could potentially get announced on October 4th is the new PixelBook running Chrome OS.

Pricing starts at $1,199 for a 128GB model, $1,399 for a 256 GB model and $1,749 for a 512GB model. "The new Pixelbook will feature a 12.3" display powered by an Intel Core i5 chipset. Reports suggest the Pixelbook could come with a stylus to differentiate it from the competition.
