In addition to being the end of the Nexus series, the new Pixel mark the return of HTC, which has not returned to participate in the manufacture of any model in the range, with the exception of the Nexus 9 tablet from the first Nexus One.

Blass indicated only that the device would have a 7 inch screen and 4 GB of RAM, but rumors have been commissioned to seek additional information and also refers to a processor Snapdragon 820. Either way, the tablet should arrive in stores before the end of the year and a presentation on 4 October is plausible.
The final version of Android Wear 2.0
In may, Google held the Conference Google I/O event in which as well as Android 7.0 Nougat, also took the opportunity to show a preview of what will be Android Wear 2.0. Since those in Mountain View have launched another version of tests and the event next Tuesday could be chosen to launch the final update.

It is expected that Google will launch a new virtual reality device in the event of next Tuesday, whose design would be more elaborate than the of the current Google Cardboard, even though all indications are that both models coexist. In addition, this device would be accompanied by a remote control to control the VR experience.
Andromeda, the fusion of Android and Chrome OS

We know little of Andromeda more beyond his name and time information is not official, so there could be last-minute changes, but everything seems to indicate that this is the direction in which targets Google. As they did with 7.0 Android and Android Wear 2.0, Andromeda would preview mode and the final version would not be ready until 2017.
These are the hottest innovations in relation to the universe ‘mobile’, but they won’t be the only surprises. Google would also to launch the new Chromecast Ultra Amazon Echo Google Home supporting 4K, the competitor and the Google WiFi router. You look forward to October 4 to tell you all the news.
