Google has recently shared a tweet via its official Twitter account, confirming the arrival of the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G really soon, on September 30.

The new Google "Sabrina" device that showed up briefly in retailer listings a couple of weeks back, which we expect to be an Android TV unit, might have the oddest of names when it launches. This presentation will be available to watch live on the internet. At this Made By Google event, the company will showcase new Pixel phones, new Chromecast and a new smart speaker, according to the invite. Following the Pixel 4a, the tech giant is now ready to launch the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Google is however going to launch the Pixel 4a in India, along with the global release of the two 5G smartphones.

The Pixel 5 will come with an OLED panel and support a 90Hz refresh rate.

The new Nest speaker is expected to finally be a replacement for the original Google Home which Google have provided some details to use all about with its ability to pair to other speakers as well as what appears to be wireless - ie. battery included. The Pixel 4a 5G will likely be powered by the same Snapdragon 765G chipset, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The hype surrounding this new gadget is also very high. Google has catered to the streaming audience with Chromecast for many years.

The allegation in question is described below. "They were baiting Apple and Google to take their apps down from the store". Epic also hit back by releasing an online ad that mimics an Apple advertisement released in 1984.

The name of "Google Chromecast with Google TV" is the most awkward of Google names, so it's ideal. This new device is a definite addition to its lineup. The design of that device will different from the previous speakers we've seen from Google.

Despite revealing a few items ahead of time, Google always tries to unveil unexpected products in these events as well.

If you have a Pixel phone, chances are that the update has already arrived on your device.
