Given that Google is launching at least one new smart home product tomorrow, the Google Home Mini, some kind of smart home accessory is a good possibility.

Google is expected to launch two Pixels - Pixel 2 and a larger Pixel 2 XL - on October 4 that would directly succeed Google's existing line-up. As mentioned above, the main differentiating factor is the display as Pixel 2 flaunts a 5-inch full HD display with a standard aspect ratio of 16:9.

The Google Home Mini is expected to be a smaller version of the Google Home smart speaker, created to compete with Amazon's smaller Echo Dot.

Google Home Mini is said to retail for just $49, which is approximately Rs 3,200. From what we know so far, it will come with a fabric material on top similar to what we've seen in the Google Daydream View VR headset.

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.

The most-anticipated Google Pixel 2 flagship smartphone also showed up on Walmart site in tandem with the Google Home Mini.

The listing was created by reseller Synnex, and has details about the new Chromebook Pixel as well as the Clips. Just as the Google Home was Google's answer to the Amazon Echo, the Google Home Mini is expected to be a Google version of an Amazon Echo Dot. The Pixelbook itself is rumored to have a huge price tag that starts at $1,199 and ranges up to $1,749 for the 512GB model. And then there's the software and services component - Android 8.1, Google Lens, and maybe even more we haven't heard about.
