What to expect?
Google might unveil a couple of things alongside some of the major announcements. Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming event.
Google announced the Google Duplex back in May 2018 at their developer’s conference. While the service has been made available at few parts of the globe, it has still not reached the masses. So, the company might make announcements related to the future of Duplex and when consumers can expect the service in their part of the world.
One of the major announcements at the upcoming developer’s conference will be the next version of Android. Android Q or Android 10.0 and its features will be unveiled at the event. The new operating system will also be made available under a Beta program so that the developers can start making apps compatible and more.
We have all heard reports stating that Google is working on another mobile operating system called Fuchsia OS. The operating system is developed on top of an all-new kernel keeping in mind of smart devices. The company might release the operating system or at least talk about it in the Google I/O.
Pixel 3 Lite
We have even heard rumours about Google launching a cheaper variant of the Pixel 3 devices. The cheaper alternative is said to be called the Pixel 3 Lite and there are very high chances that the company might take the upcoming developer’s conference as an opportunity to launch the smartphone.
