Last-minute leaks confirm Google Home Mini name, design, pricing and release date

04 October 2017

Recently, another image was inadvertently leaked through Walmart listing where the company posted an image of the Google Home Mini speaker alongside the Google Pixel 2 XL. We have only had one Pixel Day, but the second annual Pixel Day is promising to be a big one with Google gearing up to launch several devices.

Two weeks ago Droid Life reported on leaks of almost every major product expected to be announced at tomorrow's event, including the Google Home Mini.

The company is known for their high-end premium Google Pixel laptops with Chrome OS and these have come with a high price tag as well.

The Centrio News reported the specs for the new set of smartphones, which look like some massive enhancements. Now we can see both the front and the back side of the device. Rumours also suggest it should be water resistant too.

For One Day Only, McDonald's Will Sell Szechuan Sauce Again
The fast food franchise offered a tie-in deal that packed Szechuan dipping sauce in with Chicken McNugget Happy Meals. At first, the chain did almost nothing - it tweeted the words "McNugga Lubba Dub Dub" in a reply to @ RickandMorty .

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. The Google Home Mini is supposed to be 4.53 x 4.53 x 4.72 inches in size and tip the scales at under a pound. A Twitter user going by the name Raymond Durk spotted a new Google Home Mini in Google Home app, Android Police reports. One topline feature you need to know about is that the Pixel 2 XL has a screen-to-body ratio of around 80% to 85% - placing it in the same category as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Apart from the Home Mini, Google is also said to unveil a Pixelbook in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage variants. The devices will likely be available as a Verizon national carrier exclusive, and as an unlocked GSM model and through Google's Project Fi network.

Think of Google Home Mini as a cheaper and smaller version of the Google Home speaker. It is a direct rival to Amazon's Echo Dot. However, the come back of the top-of-the-line Google-designed Chromebook could help revitalize the boring ecosystem and skyrocket ideas, and we were actually a huge fan of the original Chromebook Pixel hardware form factor design, so we at the Centrio News' tech team are excited have a hands-on and how this machine compares to the competition.
