Google launching Pixel 3 Lite, Pixel Watch and speakers in 2019

Google has loaded a lot of new things for launch in 2019.

Aside from a cheaper Pixel, Google plans to release new smart speaker products, likely a successor to the original Google Home and a next-generation Google Home Mini is due. As we know, Apple's high-priced iPhone sales are disappointing as consumers turn to lower-priced models. Also, the "smartwatch [that will] compete with the Apple Watch" will likely be called the Pixel Watch, considering what Google has done with the Pixel brand so far.

Google will launch its first non-premium smartphone model with a more budget-friendly price point to appeal to more customers in emerging markets. In comparison, Google's latest model Pixel series, launched in October a year ago, was priced at $799.

Most recent rumours suggest the Pixel 3 Lite lineup will feature a Snapdragon 670 or 710 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a single 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a headphone jack and a modest 32GB of internal storage. It is rumoured to host a 5.6 inch IPS Full HD+ display. But the company recently acquired tech from watch maker Fossil, so it makes sense we'd see something come out of that deal this year, especially given Apple's big lead in the smartwatch market with the Apple Watch. When not on sale, the Pixel 3 starts at $999 CAD.

Finally, the firm will be launching a new security camera, a new product line for the firm. It's possible this could be accompanied with a rebranding effort making it more overtly Googly (i.e., "Nest by Google", etc.) but that wouldn't have to be the case for the report to be correct.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, while the current entry-level Pixel 3 starts at $799, only fifty dollars more. Although Google has been introducing new Home-branded products over the years, the company is going to be updating the regular Google Home speaker later this year after a long time. After all, the search company has announced a new Google Home every year since 2016. According to a Nikkei report, the smartphone will help the company its hardware portfolio.
