Google hasn't able to make a big impact in the global smartphone market despite its premium Pixel phones receiving mostly positive reviews.

Most of what Google is planning to launch this year is already known, like the new Pixel 3 Lite line. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset, coupled with 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.

Google's new non-premium smartphone will be priced lower than Apple's cheaper flagship, iPhone XR, which starts at Rs 70,000 approximately. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice.

Meanwhile, the Pixel 3 XL Lite will have a slightly larger 6-inch display. It's rumored that we'll see this device later this Spring. If you didn't get a chance to vote, now's your time to sound off in the comments on what you would have chosen. Google has plans to announce some other smart products. An updated Google Home. Unfortunately, there's no additional details around what these updates could entail, but it seems likely that we'll a new smart speaker from Google.

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.

"The new phone will be the spearhead of Google's drive to expand the hardware using its operating systems", reads the report. However, it failed to materialise during the launch. It will be the company's first wearable device which has already been delayed due to some reasons past year. With Nest merged into Google proper any new hardware out of that department would be courtesy of Google at some level, and Nest releases new cams all the time. The new Pixel 3 Lite line will reportedly undercut the iPhone Xr in terms of pricing.

"One person with direct knowledge of the matter told Nikkei that Google plans to release a new security camera later this year after it integrated the team from Nest Labs".
