The rumored Google Pixel 2. "That display should be an LG-made 6" 2,880x1,440 OLED, by the way.

The Centrio News reported the specs for the new set of smartphones, which look like some massive enhancements.

There are also rumors that the search mammoth will completely ditch the audio jack port in favor and to take advantage of the USB-C technology.

Google had been betting big on VR for a long time now, and we can expect more from the company at tomorrow's event. While Google is yet to confirm when this device will be launched, a product listing for Google Home Mini briefly went online on Walmart's website today. While the Google Pixel 2 will come with 5-inch Full HD Display.

Are you excited for the new Google Pixel 2?

Otherwise, the two phones are quite similar, at least on paper: 4GB of RAM, either 64GB or 128GB of storage, and 12-megapixel primary rear cameras, along with front-firing stereo speakers. There's no information available as yet about the device's release. Already we know far too much about both flagship phones - meaning Wednesday's announcement probably won't contain any surprises whatsoever. Firstly, Google has confirmed there will be a new Pixel in 2017, and that only leaves a small window.

Last month we heard through Droid-Life that the Google Pixelbook will be sold alongside a $99 stylus called the Pixelbook Pen, which will reportedly have pressure-sensitive and tilt support. But this one will reportedly cost an extra $99, same price as to the Apple Pencil. The leaked images first appeared on Android blog DroidLife's Twitter and appear to be product render shots - presumably for retailer use. The smart speaker will weigh less than 500 grams, and come in Chalk, Charcoal, and Coral.

A recent tweet by San Francisco resident, Raymond Durk, claims that he spotted a new Google speaker being used.
