Google may unveil Pixel 3 Lite and new smartwatch in 2019

The report also notes that Google plans to launch a new Nest-branded security camera this year, as well as an updated version of the Google Home smart speaker. According to sources speaking to the Nikkei Asian Review, that's set to launch later in 2019. As we know, Apple's high-priced iPhone sales are disappointing as consumers turn to lower-priced models.

Google is not a new player in the hardware market.

Google will launch its first non-premium smartphone model with a more budget-friendly price point to appeal to more customers in emerging markets. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice. The Pixel 2 and 3 already offer eSIM support along with a physical SIM, but both of them do not work at the same time.

The company will purportedly not be abandoning its premium line and will launch premium variants of the Google Pixel 4 as normal. Also, the "smartwatch [that will] compete with the Apple Watch" will likely be called the Pixel Watch, considering what Google has done with the Pixel brand so far. It is rumoured to host a 5.6 inch IPS Full HD+ display.




The market research firm recently insisted Google's Pixel brand is now the "fastest-growing major smartphone brand in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2018". Google has plans to announce some other smart products. Now, it seems, Google is looking to address that once more. The report mentions statistics from the IDS that show Google sold some 3.45 million Pixel units in 2017 and 4.68 million Pixel units a year ago. It is unclear whether this means an entirely new speaker or just updated specs to the old one but we expect Google to bring an entirely new speaker with the same design cues as the original.

The report doesnt give any specific details about the timing of these products, but we should have a better idea as we get closer to Googles annual I/O developer conference where the company talks about the future of Android and Google services.

Smartphones aren't the only Google hardware on the horizon.
