Technology giant Google has announced its I/O 2019 event confirming its date and venue. Although the details about the Google I/O 2019 are scare, they directly come from CEO Sundar Pichai, who took to Twitter announce about the event.
This year, Google I/O is set to begin on May 7 and will go on till May 9. The event will be held at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, California.
It is worth noticing that Google I//O is being held at the same venue for three years now. While it was easy to guess the venue of the event even before the announcement, it’s slightly harder to guess what the technology giant has up its sleeve for the I/O 2019.

First and foremost, the company will be announcing its new mobile platform – Android Q – at the Google I/O 2019. We should mention that a recent report that had surfaced online gave us the first glimpse into the upcoming operating system. The images of the beta build that were shared with the report show a system-wide dark theme, a revamped permissions model and a number of other changes.
Google usually announced its latest operating system at the I/O event every year and this year should be no different. We are also waiting eagerly to know what Google will name its Android version this time. Any desert names starting with Q you know of?
Moving on, it’s too early to expect the Pixel 4 smartphones. And the company anyway has a tradition of announcing its smartphones at its October event. Although we have no hopes of seeing the Pixel 4 handset, we expect Google to unveil its mid-range smartphones Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite. A number of reports have been circulating about the two smartphones online. So, we wouldn’t be wrong to expect Google to use its I/O event to announce the two.
Another device by the company – ‘Google Coral’ – has been spotted at various benchmark sites over the last few months. The device runs Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 processor clubbed with Android Q. While not much has been said about the device, it has been speculated that Google Coral is actually a tablet that the company is planning to launch. However, until there is an official word on the device, we would take this information with a pinch of salt.
