Google's Pixel 2 will come in new 'kinda blue' color

Since the Google Pixel 2 is made by HTC, it doesn't surprise us much. It'll also have 64GB and 128GB storage options and be priced at $649 and $749, respectively.

According to the publication, the LG-built Pixel 2 XL (which is indeed the device's official name) will be available in two colorways when it launches: Black & White and Just Black. While this might seem confusing since last year's Pixel lineup was unveiled on October 5, Google is the one who put up a huge billboard in Boston which shows that October 4 is the actual release date. As to its features, it can set reminders, grab news and schedule activities just like a full-size Google Home device. Because of how small it is, it's unlikely that any part of it will be swappable (like the Google Home's interchangeable bases). They are doing hard work to make the event a success by launching the new Hardware devices.

Now it's the turn of the smaller Pixel 2 and an apparent new version of the Google Daydream VR headset. The most unbelievable thing is that it'll cost just $49.

It looks like the base of the Google Home Mini will match the top part, too, with a dark base for the Coal color scheme, a white base for the Chalk, and a coral base for the Coral variant. The Google Home sells for $129, while the Amazon Echo goes for $179, though it's often on sale for less.

Speaking of the Assistant, 9to5Google also found references to new voices for Google's digital helper (you'll now be able to choose male or female voices), and the "possibility" of a new command to call up the Assistant in the first place.
