Because of an alleged delay in the rollout of that silicon, however, both Pixel 2 and 2 XL will instead utilize the same chipset as the LG V30 and all three Samsung flagships this year, the Snapdragon 835.

Blass's photo of the Pixel 2 XL shows it wearing a case, but there's also one where it's not. Overall, the design isn't a dramatic departure from the Pixels of a year ago, but the Pixel 2 XL deserves more points here because its display looks a little more polished and modern than its smaller Pixel 2 sibling. Given the success of Pixel past year, the follow-up should be better. That was all we knew when we had originally heard of the Pixelbook though-until today. The big advantage of going Google is that you inevitably get the first bite of the new operating systems when they emerge. The Google Home Mini is set to have all the same functionality as the full sized Google Home without the decent speaker.

The Pixelbook is expected to sell at the a top-tier premium price point of the Chromebook, with the base model starting at a whopping $1,199, with a separate stylus pen accessory quite similar to the Microsoft Surface Pen. Assistant is how Google sees people interacting with their phones, devices in the future and it will try and make sure that most of its hardware can support this one crucial feature. They are identical, but they have the suffix of _b.png and happen to be correlated with a device referred to as "google-home-big".

Another hardware product that's widely believed to take the spotlight is a new high-end Chromebook dubbed as the Google Pixelbook, which seems to be a successor to original Chromebook Pixel. Unfortunately, that speaker isn't expected to actually be announced until tomorrow. The small disk weighs less than a pound and measures 4.53 x 4.53 x 4.72 inches, according to its spec sheet.
