Google I/O is the event where the company unveils new technologies and talks about the new updates of its old apps and services. In Google I/O 2019, the company will be unveiling the next generation Android OS platform – Android Q. There is not much known about what the newest iteration of Android will bring aside from few reports which talks about a system-wide dark mode.
There is little chance that the company will launch Google Pixel 4 as of yet, as the company unveils its hardware in October. But there are reports that two new budget-oriented mid-range smartphones named Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite might be launched at the upcoming Google I/O. These phones will be exactly what their names suggests – a ‘liter’ version of the 2018 flagships smartphones.
There is also news floating around online that Google has been working on a new device called ‘Google Coral’ which might be a tablet of sorts. It has been seen at a few benchmark websites, and reports suggest that the device is powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC and it will run Android Q. With only few months to go, we might get more news about what the technology giant will be unveiling and what it has planned for the users in 2019.
