What's special about this year's Google I/O Developer Conference is that Google will release two new Pixel smarts at the I/O Developer Conference demo session.Mobile phoneIn the update cycle of this series of smartphones, consumers are offered lower-priced products. In the course of the keynote speech, Google will publish about the technological advancement of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and even search function improvement and other related content.

Smartphone Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL

The latest news confirms that Google will launch two mid-range Pixel smartphones at this Google I/O Developer Conference. According to reports, the Pixel 3A is priced at $399, while the Pixel 3A XL is equipped with a larger 6-inch screen, starting at $479.

It is said that the camera performance of these two phones is basically the same as the flagship phone Pixel 3. Google has done some cost-cutting work in other parts of the phone, such as using a less powerful processor, abandoning the glass structure and switching to a plastic structure, and eliminating the wireless charging function. It is particularly worth mentioning that both phones are equipped with a headphone jack, which is undoubtedly good news for consumers.

The launch of these two mobile phones is also the most positive move Google has made in terms of mobile phone pricing for many years, even lower than OnePlus, indicating that Google is trying to launch a hot-selling mobile phone in the middle of the year. Pixel 3A and 3A XL will each receive a three-year software and security upgrade.

Smart home equipment Hub Max

Google earlier on the GoogleStore page, accidentally leaked this unreleased smart home new product Nest Hub Max. According to the leaked information, the Nest Hub Max is equipped with a 10-inch screen and stereo speakers. In addition, we don't know much about Hub Max, only know that it is likely to run the same software, integrate Google's digital assistant Assistant, and provide users with a visual interface that can be used anywhere in the home. The price of this new product is currently unclear, compared to the $7 home console at $150.

As a Nest product, Hub Max is likely to have security features not available in Home Hub, perhaps a combination of smart displays and smart cameras.

A complete preview of the mobile operating system Android Q

Google has released several beta versions of the Android Q system, but it is likely that the company has left some of the more heavyweight announcements to the I/O Developers Conference. The full preview of Android will provide users with more flexible privacy controls, such as restricting the permissions of the application, and only tracking the location when the user is actively using it. In addition, night mode, color themes and a more flexible sharing menu will also appear in the full preview version, and Android Q is laying the foundation for the future of foldable phones.

Google also seems to be working hard to fix the gesture navigation capabilities of its Pixel smartphone. There are even signs that you can use a desktop mode like Samsung Dex when you plug your phone into an external display. Of course, as Google may introduce operating system updates to consumers in the late summer, we should have a good understanding of Google's plans next Tuesday.

Cloud Game Service Google Stadia

Google released its cloud gaming service Stadia at this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC). We know it will arrive sometime this year, but Google has yet to release key details such as subscription fees. At this I/O Developers Conference, the public may see another demonstration of Google Stadia that contains more specific information about consumer-facing releases. But the company may also choose to wait until the game-centric E3 meeting is held.

Google Digital Assistant Google Assistant and artificial intelligence analysis tool Google Lens

Every year, Google likes to spend a lot of time showing the progress of Google Digital Assistant Google Assistant and explaining why it is becoming a smarter and more capable voice assistant than Amazon Alexa. Then there is the artificial intelligence analysis tool Google Lens, which turns the Android phone's camera into a powerful visual analysis tool.

Google Photos improvements

In the past few years, Google Photos has become the de facto photo management application for many people, and Google usually introduces new features for Google Photos during the I/O Developers Conference, which will be in weeks or months. After going online.

There may not be too much information for Android TV or Wear OS

Prior to this year's I/O Developers Conference, Google has released information about Wear OS. The Wear OS platform is gaining new browsable widgets that Google calls Tiles, and Wear OS makes it easy for users to view weather forecasts, next schedules, news headlines, and more. The reason why Google announced before the conference, may indicate that there will not be too much time for the Wear OS.

In addition, there is no other indication that Google has an ambitious plan to restructure or redesign the Android TV operating system this year. The Android TV related products we saw at the I/O Developers Conference last year have not yet entered the market, but the software continues to enter from many manufacturers including Sony and Hisense.TVmarket.

What else is necessary?

At the /O Developers Conference last year, Google’s first public display of the Duplex feature was really amazing. The Duplex feature allows Google Digital Assistant Google Assistant to call local businesses and book rooms on behalf of users. Practically speaking, it is difficult for the company to surpass this existing level in 2019. But who knows what will happen?
