Google's I/O Conference Is Coming: Here's What to Expect

Google's I/O Conference Is Coming: Here's What to Expect

Google I/O is an annual developer conference held by Google in Mountainview, California.

We reported three days ago that Google's upcoming Pixel 3a XL was listed on Best Buy. There happens to be another leak about the upcoming Google Pixel phones, more precisely the Google Pixel 3a XL pricing in India. There will be a livestream of the event, which you can catch on the Google I/O website. However, Google did say its new service is due to launch sometime this year, so what better place to unveil some more information about the anticipated service than at I/O, especially since the Pixels are sure to be among the first Android phones to support it.

Originally brought to light via Roland Quandt on Twitter, the leak reveals that the Pixel 3a will feature a 5.6-inch 2,220 x 1,080 pixel OLED display.

At the Stadia announcement event, Google disclosed nearly everything about their new streaming service but promised to dole out more details in the future, including how the developers can bring their games to the platform and what it would cost to play titles on your browser.


Rumors surrounding the device is that since the phone might be based on the mid-range Snapdragon 660/670 chipset and feature the same software and hardware camera prowess of the pixel line-up.

We have already seen plenty of Pixel 3A leaks which really don't leave much room for surprises at the smartphone's announcement. Of course, Google hasn't made any announcements yet so we'll just wait and see. Google has already confirmed there will be six beta versions released before the final consumer-ready version comes through in the third quarter of this year. It's the Nest Hub Max, which will be a new addition to the company's Assistant-backed Home smart displays lineup but possibly under the Nest brand name. So, stay tuned with us for more updates. The price is also unknown at this point, but for comparison's sake, the 7-inch Home Hub is priced at $150. While this is a price of the 6GB model, Google is also expected to sell a 4GB RAM version with 32GB storage and we can expect the phone to sell for a cheaper price.

Here's a roundup of what to expect from this year's Google I/O. As with the Pixel 3, Google is betting on artificial intelligence over the presence of dual (or more) lenses to generate quality shots.
