Report reveals more details about Google’s products for 2019

14 February 2019

Apple's struggle in the premium segment and Google's comparatively lackluster Pixel smartphone sales are cited as direct reasons for the decision to push forward with the products.

The Google smartwatch - which would likely be called the Pixel Watch, if Google sticks to its conventions - has been bandied about since last July.

Nikkei Asian Review spoke to unnamed "industry sources" who revealed a cavalcade of Google products that are now in the pipeline.

As earlier reported, Google will be launching a new Pixel 3 Lite, aimed at "price-sensitive" customers. Other than the fact that the wearable is created to compete with the Apple Watch, Nikkei doesn't say much about the upcoming device.

That strategy changed with the arrival of the first Google Pixel in 2016. It's also been a while since the original Google Home was released, and Nikkei pegs it as getting an improved refresh - though I'd still love to see a water-resistant unit for the bathroom. Exactly how cheap the Pixel 3 Lite might end up being is unclear at this stage.

Google Pixel 3 was announced back in October and presented Android fans with a number of notable improvements from its predecessor.

The report doesnt give any specific details about the timing of these products, but we should have a better idea as we get closer to Googles annual I/O developer conference where the company talks about the future of Android and Google services.

In order to realize its "hardware dream", Google is still digging the corner of Apple employees to expand cooperation with Asian suppliers.

Finally, Google plans to unveil an updated Nest Cam lineup.

Google will, the sources claim, aim to launch its Google Pixel Lite at a price point much lower than Apple's least expensive iPhone in a bid to convince on-the-fence buyers over to its ecosystem. Consumers should also expect a new security camera from Nest, according to Nikkei.

The company will purportedly not be abandoning its premium line and will launch premium variants of the Google Pixel 4 as normal.

As for the release of these products, majority will likely be announced and launched around October of this year.

As always, it's worth taking the above rumours with a healthy pinch of salt.
