While the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL are certainties to be revealed on Thursday morning, Google is also likely to reveal a few other products that will get heads talking.

The Google Home Mini, a trimmed down version of the Home, is likely to be unveiled, as will an updated version of Google’s VR headset – the Daydream. No word on how the new headset will differ from the first yet, but a few leaked images seem to suggest that there will be, at the very least, multiple colours. It also appears that Google will be getting back into the Chromebook game in a big way with a ‘Pixelbook’ reveal coming too.

Lifehacker Australia will be providing extensive coverage of the Google event on the Thursday, so you can be sure you don’t miss any of the big reveals. Stay tuned!


  • I have a Pixel and I am thinking about replacing it with the Pixel 2. But I don’t need an ‘event’. I will just go into a phone shop (not at lunchtime!) and ask a sales assistant. What does an event do? Who is it aimed at? Is it worth the money for Google (HTC, LG etc) or is it merely justifying the salaries in the marketing department?
