Google’s much-anticipated Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL launch event is merely a day away, and we are expecting new hardware with the company’s “Made by Google” tag. The event’s biggest stars are likely to be the new Pixel smartphones, but apart from them, Google is also likely to launch new Chromebook – Pixelbook, mini variant of its Home smart speaker, and the next generation of Daydream VR headsets.
Now, a new report ‘seemingly’ confirms existence of Google Home Mini ahead of the official reveal. Android Police reports that a Twitter user named Raymond Durk, who reportedly lives two blocks away from the Google campus, spotted a new Google Home Mini in Google Home app. The new device was requesting for a setup which hints that a Google employee must be testing the device ahead of the official rollout.
Previous leaks have already suggested that Google is working on small-sized smart speaker likely to be called Google Home Mini. It is said to be priced at $49 (roughly Rs. 3,200) by the company.
A recent report also hinted that Google may be working on a high-end version of Home speaker with stereo sound. The new smart speaker was internally dubbed Google Home “Max” and was said to come with a single tweeter with dual mid-range drivers. As for looks, the new “Max” speakers are said to be premium in both design and build material. The speculations around the “Max” device, however, said that there’s no surety whether the “Max” smart speaker will be unveiled alongside other products at Wednesday event.
