O Google warned this Monday (14) that he will hold an online event next September 30 at 3:00 pm, Brasília time: it will be focused on hardware and will mark the official announcement of the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, new Nest speaker and Chromecast with Google TV (formerly Android TV).
It is worth noting that Google itself has already confirmed what the event will be about: “we invite you to discover everything about our new Chromecast, smart speaker and new Pixel phones”, says the invitation sent to the press.
Chromecast with Google TV appeared on the American retailer Target’s system; it is listed for $ 50. This is the device internally called “Sabrina”, with oblong design, remote control with microphone for Google Assistant, and the Android TV operating system – which will be renamed very soon to Google TV.
With the new Chromecast, it will not be mandatory to transmit content from your phone or PC to your TV: the device will have its own interface focused on content and will be able to receive commands from a remote control. It has already been approved in the USA by the FCC, equivalent to Anatel, and must have the same processor as the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick.
Google will launch Pixel 5 and 4a 5G
There is not much mystery when it comes to the Pixel 5: it has already leaked a few times with a 6-inch OLED screen, 90 Hz refresh rate, dual rear camera, Snapdragon 765G and 15 W wireless charging with reverse wireless charging. There would be a fingerprint reader at the rear, instead of unlocking by facial recognition.
The Pixel 4a 5G will have the same design, processor and cameras as the Pixel 5. However, it should save on some specifications: the 6.2-inch screen would come without support at a rate of 90 Hz; RAM memory would be reduced (6 GB, against 8 GB in Pixel 5); and the battery should have a slightly smaller capacity (3,800 mAh, against 4,000 mAh for the Pixel 5).
At the event scheduled for the end of the month, we will also have a new Nest smart speaker. Google itself confirmed its existence in July, after a series of leaks: it will have three color options and a size similar to that of Google Home Max.
