The latest victim is Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices.

Google's big fall hardware event is shaping up to be exciting. The Pixel 2, or as we like to call it here at Ausdroid, the lesser Pixel 2, will have the same display ratio as a year ago and bezels that are either the same or slightly bigger.

The Centrio News reported the specs for the new set of smartphones, which look like some massive enhancements. Both will have squeezable sides (Active Edge), 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, dual stereo front-facing speakers and a 12MP single rear camera. Many reports also suggest that these phones will come with the IP67 rating for dust and water resistance. The bottom visibly houses a USB Type-C port. Specifically, there have been rumors about a Google Home Mini and a Google Pixelbook, but specifications of these devices have yet to be revealed.

If you happened to be shopping on Walmart's website Tuesday morning, you may have noticed you could preorder a Google Home Mini - a full day before Google was scheduled to announce the new product.

The Google Pixel 2 will be available at $650 starting on October 19. One topline feature you need to know about is that the Pixel 2 XL has a screen-to-body ratio of around 80% to 85% - placing it in the same category as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Just like the e-commerce giant company Amazon - which has recently released the next-generation Echo product lineup to include a a number of new form factor designs including the unconventional Echo Spot. It can also act like a smart hub, which will able to control several smart home devices as well as Nest.

The last expected announcements from Google are an updated version of its virtual reality Daydream headset, as well as a smaller version of its Google Home voice assistant. It is a direct rival to Amazon's Echo Dot. Evan Blass has now posted images showing what he claims are the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, complete with their revamped designs and user interface.

A ChromeOS operating system-powered Pixelbook that sells for over $1,000 will not probably to be a hot seller - the aging ChromeOS that only runs web apps has come a long way over the years without key upgrades. But this one will reportedly cost an extra $99, same price as to the Apple Pencil. Previous leaks about this laptop, which is codenamed Eve, indicate it will have a fingerprint sensor, Google Assistant support, and a tweaked keyboard layout.
