Mysterious 'Google Clips' device leaked ahead of big announcement

We told you about a second device we've heard about from a couple sources supposedly called the Google Home Max, and while we're not sure if it'll be announced at Google's event tomorrow, we now have some of the first hard cut-and-dry evidence for the device's existence. Evan Blass has now posted images showing what he claims are the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, complete with their revamped designs and user interface. Presumably, a careless search giant employee left his testing unit visible to nearby compatible gadgets while preparing its installation or performing some last-minute software inspections. Like the Amazon Echo Dot, the Google Home Mini will also skip the very big speaker setup for a smaller form factor. Surprisingly, Walmart's listing also gives us another look at the Pixel 2 XL, this time with the screen on and the Google Home app open.

The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL is about to remedy the fatal flaw that left my original Pixel XL vulnerable, broken and hobbled for snapping photos. The latest victim is Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices. This version is expected to be a successor to the Google Home with better features like stereo speakers.

There is now no confirmed market release date for the devices, but the Pixel 2 is expected to sell at a starting price of $649, while the Pixel 2 XL is expected to sell at a starting price of $849.

Google also made some changes to the Pixel interface. Thanks to a fresh leak from a popular online retailer, we've also now got a few more details about the rumored Google Home Mini. The small disk weighs less than a pound and measures 4.53 x 4.53 x 4.72 inches, according to its spec sheet. The Mini is apparently created to fulfil a gap in some people's homes where they feel a full series of $200AUD speakers isn't particularly feasible - a Google Home in every room? Unlike previous Chromebooks which came in low storage options the new PixelBook will arrive in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage options.

What are you most looking forward to on Pixel Day?
