Google to reportedly launch Pixel Watch, new Nest camera, and more in 2019
Ever since 2016 with the launch of the original Pixel and Google Home, Google's been proving year after year that it's serious about hardware. Thanks to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, we now have an early look at what to expect from Google in 2019.
The first product Nikkei mentions is Google's "first non-premium smartphone" that's expected to be priced lower than Apple's $750 iPhone XR. This is more than likely the Pixel 3 Lite we've been talking about for a while, so that one isn't all that surprising. Along with the Pixel 3 Lite, Nikkei also notes that Google "plans to launch a new premium phone in its Pixel range" — what we're anticipating to the Pixel 4.
Outside of smartphones, 2019 should also see Google release its first Pixel-branded smartwatch to compete with the Apple Watch lineup, a much-needed updated version of the Google Home speaker, and a security camera.
As for the release of these products, most of them will likely be announced and launched around October of this year. Previous rumors have indicated that the Pixel 3 Lite will launch a bit sooner, but we really aren't sure right now.
The Pixel 3 Lite will be Google's most important phone in 2019
