The Pixel phones were the highlights of the Google press event earlier, but the two smartphones were not the only things unveiled by the company there. The Chromecast Ultra has been announced at the event, which will be able to stream 4K content with ease. Consider this as an upgraded and beefed up version of the popular Chromecast 2. Along with support for Dolby Vision and HDR10, supported apps include YouTube, Vudu and Netflix for starters. It should also be able to playback Google Play Movies by November.



According to Google, users will experience a general increase in speed compared to the Chromecast 2 (1.8 times to be exact) in any stream. If you do not have a Wi-Fi connection that is fast enough to stream video content at 4K resolution, the Chromecast Ultra can also directly take in an Ethernet cable, thanks to an Ethernet port on the accompanying power adapter. As with the previous versions, Android mirroring on your TV will be supported and so will Google Home. It will go on sale in November with a price tag of $69 in the US.

Google has launched its first router ever, but you will have to wait till December to get your hands on one. Although the pre-orders will start from next month, it won't be until December that the company will start shipping the Wi-Fi router to their customers. A single unit will set you back by $129 but if you can find two other interested friends, you can have a pack of three for only $299. Provided that you have a big enough house, you can also use multiple of these as the modular devices may also be used to widen the signal area of your primary router's connection.


Google Wi-Fi will allow the admin to control network usage by enabling him/her to restrict data consumption on any of the connected devices. The Network Assist feature will continue to improve the performance of your network, in addition to decongesting it. It supports mesh networking as well, in case you already have an OnHub router.

It is almost impossible to keep a smartphone secret before its official unveiling date these days and as it turns out, the new Pixel phones from Google are no exceptions either. Multiple retailers have leaked all details about the Google Pixel smartphones, ahead of its unveiling tomorrow. For example, Carphone Warehouse is a British retailer which had put up listings for the two phones for a very short time, before removing it. Whether it was an intentional marketing strategy or just a mistake, we are not really sure! Nevertheless, here is what the listings confirm for us about the Pixel and Pixel XL. Do check the pictures also for some more insight into Google's plans for tomorrow.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are all set to launch around the world in October, but thanks to VentureBeat, what we have for you today are alleged renders of the two smartphones, ahead of time. What you see above is the smaller Pixel, with 5-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (2GHz clock speed) processor, 32GB of internal storage and a 2,770mAh battery to power it all. There will also be a 12-megapixel rear snapper, an 8-megapixel selfie cam, USB Type-C, fingerprint scanner at the back and maybe even a 3.5mm headphone jack if we are lucky!



The Pixel XL pictured above will almost be identical to its smaller brother, except a bigger, better display and battery. The display on it will supposedly sport a 1440p Quad High Definition panel stretched over 5.5-inches. The battery is also significantly bigger at 3,450mAh in order to power that large QHD display. The two smartphones from Google are rumoured to be more expensive than any of the previous smartphones from the brand with a price tag that starts at $649. Both smartphones are being manufactured by HTC, under the Google Pixel branding.
