We’re quite confident that Google will indeed reveal a two new smartphones, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, in early next month. However, we are still puzzled if the search engine giant firm will have any other surprises left to be introduced in the stage when Google host an event on October 4th.

Droid Life has reported that it obtained press render images as well as retail prices not for just the next-generation Pixel phones, but five new next iteration Google consumer electronics products that will purportedly be launched in a couple of weeks now. We haven’t single-handedly corroborated any of these new leaks, but these new report likely the real deal. When reaching Google, the company didn’t respond to our email request for a comment.

Many, including us, has been waiting for this last flagship smartphone for 2017 to be launched. Now that Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S8+ and its phablet Note 8, LG’s V30 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 have already been unveiled recently, the Google Pixel 2 is the last major release handset many been waiting for.

We have seen a number of images with most are artist renders in the last several months, this time we’re seeing trustworthy leak of the Google Pixel 2 images. Also, we’ve heard a plethora of rumors and speculations — including a higher price tag, and possibly, the departure of an auxiliary jack port. But now, Droid-Life is shedding some lights as it gives us a brighter glimpse yet at the Pixel 2, in which if the leaks are to be believed, the handset will be available in three colors options: blue, white and black.

However, the report doesn’t confirm much more detailed information regarding the hardware specs including the processor, camera, and among others. But the report claims that the HTC-manufactured Google Pixel 2 will be shipped with 64GB of on-board storage base model for $650 and for the higher capacity of 128GB for $750.

Google has its own response to the Amazon Echo smart home speaker, but what about the smaller and far more cheaper Echo Dot? We’d heard whispers of a miniature model of the Google Home speaker, and now Droid Life appears to have the first photos and price.

Just like its larger sibling, the Google Assistant-powered Google Home Mini will be able to help you with your schedule, set reminders, hear news, and other Google Home-related queries. The little smart speaker will be available for just $49, same price tag as the Echo Dot.
