Google announced the Pixel 4’s successor, Pixel 5. It was the highlight of the event. This year, though, there won’t be an XL variant. The device for mainstream consumers doesn’t get mainstream specs since its equipped with a mid-range Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB RAM, and 128 GB internal storage. It sports a 4,080mAh battery power a 6-inch (2,340 x 1,080), 90 hertz OLED punch-hole display, and the phone.

The Google Nest Home is a $99 (₹7,200) smart speaker, which is a successor to the Google Home. It looks like a mini-Google Home Max. It has the Google Assistant for voice commands, and the device sports a fabric mesh cover in terms of design.

Google TV

The new $49 (₹3,500) Chromecast runs Google TV and streams various services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, etc. It has dedicated buttons for Google Assistant, YouTube, and Netflix. This device directly competes with Amazon’s Fire TV and Apple TV.

Google won’t be launching Pixel 5 in India, and it’s a good decision since no one in their right mind would splurge over ₹50,000 on a midrange Snapdragon Processor.
