Google just sent out invites for an event in San Francisco on October 4th. Tech Habor hears the 4k Chromecast devices will be revealed at the i/o 16 event.
While the invite itself only features Google’s own logo, the company also just posted ateaser video and site that both strongly hint at a new phone. The URL for the teaser site is madeby.google.com, and unless something has changed, the Pixel brand still stands for devices that are made by Google (and not in cooperation with its partners like LG or Huawei).
According to the latest reports fromAndroid Police, we’ll likely see two Pixel phones (one large, one small and Google will do away with the Nexus brand).
The last time Google held an event for a smartphone launch a year ago, the company also announced the next generation of its Chromecast device and rumor has it that we’ll see a 4K-capable Chromecast this time around. At the same event last year, Google also showed off the Pixel C tablet, though it only launched it a few months later. Maybe we’ll see a new Pixel C, too.
At its I/O developer conference earlier this year, Google also debuted Google Home, it’s answer to the Amazon Echo, and the Daydream VR device.
Google Now set the your reminder for 9am PT on October 4th for the event.
