New Leak Shows Off Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

This device would therefore be released right alongside the Google Pixel 2 and the Google Pixel 2 XL. Google is again using quirky names for the colors; the Pixel 2 will be available in Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White.

There will also be a higher priced option as well, which will cost $750 for the 128GB of storage, just like a year ago, so there's no change in this particular area.

As with previous leaks, it's clear that the Pixel 2 XL will only feature a single rear camera, bucking the trend of most of today's Android (and iOS) flagships.

We'll find out for sure on October 4 when Google hosts its autumn event. Amazon's strategy with their Echo Dot (with Alexa onboard), the Google Home Mini is tipped to essentially be a smaller, less powerful version of the larger Home device.

It makes sense for Google to be planning a miniature, cheaper alternative to its $129 Google Home.

Meanwhile, Google Home may have just gotten a hell of a lot more adorable. This time around, however, the device is being made by LG.

The Google Home Mini is a small, fabric-covered speaker that offers much of the same smart functionality as the original Google Home, albeit with less volume, given the smaller size.

It looks like the base of the Google Home Mini will match the top part, too, with a dark base for the Coal color scheme, a white base for the Chalk, and a coral base for the Coral variant.

Meanwhile, the new Daydream View headset will cost $99, according to a separate report. There's also no touch surface, so you may not be able to quiet the device with a tap of your finger, as you can with the current Google Home speaker.
