Made by Google Event 2018: What we expect and don’t expect for Pixel, Google Home and more

While it might seem like the annual Made by Google event has already taken place based on the Pixel leaks we’ve received on a daily basis, we actually still have another day until the big event. Google hasn’t exactly been secretive about its new phone or much of anything else being unveiled tomorrow, but there’s still plenty to be excited about. Here’s everything we expect to see tomorrow, a few things we probably won’t be seeing, and a couple of surprises that may be in store:

Pixel 3/Pixel 3XL

The star of the show Tuesday will be the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. With all the leaks, there’s little left that we don’t know about them. You can check out the details in our rumor roundup, but in a nutshell, the two phones will once again be separated by screen size, with the smaller one likely getting a 5.5-inch display and the larger one possibly getting a 6.7-inch one. The two phones should be similar to their predecessors in total size due to slimmed-down bezels, less space above and below the screen, and a giant notch on the XL model.

Google is teasing something exciting about the selfie camera.

As always, they’ll also have great specs and a great camera, and if you’re hoping for a dual camera, you’re in luck. Kind of. Leaks and renders have confirmed that Google will be sticking with a single lens for the main camera but going with a dual setup for the front lens as part of a new “Super Selfie Mode.” Even Google itself has started teasing the feature.

Like last year’s Pixel, the Pixel 3 won’t have a headphone jack. The good news, maybe: Google is rumored to be bundling a pair of USB-C Pixel Buds in the box this year.

Pixel Stand

Another thing the Pixel phones will be getting this year is wireless charging. To mark the occasion, Google will reportedly be releasing a new Pixel Stand charger. It is pretty much what the name implies: a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen. Our only question is: Will it come in different colors to match the new Pixels?

Google Home Hub

Smart displays are all the rage, and Google is rumored to be getting in on the action with its own screen-centric Google Home Hub. A few pics of the new device have already leaked, and it kind of looks like a 7-inch screen screwed onto a Google Home. It’ll work just like Google’s other smart speakers except you’ll be able to see what Assistant is saying. Rumor has it that it’ll cost $150, which is very reasonable for a smart speaker with a display.

Pixel Slate

Here’s where things start to get interesting. It’s been three years since Google released the Android-based Pixel C tablet, but that clock’s about to be reset in a big way. According to persistent rumors and a few leaked renders, Google will be unveiling the Pixel Slate, a new Chrome OS-based tablet with Android 9 support, Pixelbook Pen support, and a fingerprint sensor.

The Pixel Slate will reportedly run Chrome OS.

Specs appear to be similar to the Pixelbook’s, with Intel processors, lots of RAM and storage, and several models to choose from. There are even rumors that it will dual-boot in Windows 10. It reportedly won’t come with a keyboard, but at least one third-party one will be available for purchase.
