Google's 2019 Hardware Includes a New Home, Watch, Security Camera

Google Pixel 4 may get dual SIM support like the iPhone

Google Pixel 4 may get dual SIM support like the iPhone

It's too early to talk about the Pixel 4 flagship phone that Google will likely launch sometime in the fourth quarter this year, but sources said to be familiar with the matter have revealed Google's hardware plans for 2019, which unsurprisingly include a bunch of new devices. Amid of Apple's low sales, Google sees an opportunity to bring the ecosystem with some new advancements. 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.

Google is working on a glut of new hardware for its Made By Google line-up, according to a new report from Japanese newspaper Nikkei.

Apart from an affordable phone, Google is expected to launch its regular Pixel series later this year.

New smart speakers and security cameras aren't especially surprising.

Pixel 3 comes in two models; the standard Pixel 3 that has a 5.5-inch P-OLED display and the larger Pixel 3 XL that has a 6.3-inch P-OLED panel.

That strategy changed with the arrival of the first Google Pixel in 2016.

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 Pixel 3 was announced back in October and presented Android fans with a number of notable improvements from its predecessor. The bumper report from Nikkei suggests the Google-owned security camera range will be rebranded to sit alongside the Pixel smartphone, Pixel Watch, PixelBook, and Pixel Slate tablet. It's not clear what's expected to change on the new Home speaker, however. It's unclear if the publication means an update to one of Google's existing smart home speakers or an entirely new device. According to a Nikkei report, the smartphone will help the company its hardware portfolio. While we've figured Google had some first-party smartwatch in the works since a job listing went up last week, Nikkei's report seems to indicate there's more than one on the way, or at least being worked on.
