What to expect from Google I/O 2019

Google Pixel 3a official ads and renders reveal pricing details, colour options & more

Most smartphone enthusiasts are looking forward to the "Google Pixel 3a" and its XL version as this is touted to be a budget offering to the Google pixel line of phones. Google's entry into streaming gaming is still planned for the end of 2019, at least in North America, but Google I/O will be the ideal arena to find out more on the specifics of the games and the launch.

Moreover, the smaller Pixel 3a version is expected to be much cheaper than the bigger Pixel 3a XL considering that it could be powered by a Snapdragon 670 SoC. Both the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are listed with Just Black and Clearly White color options and 64GB of built-in storage. The camera will also come equipped with features like Portrait Mode, Motion Auto Focus, accompanied by unlimited Google Photos storage. We will update all the specs, pricing and release details following the official announcement event later today.

The Google Pixel 3 series earned a gong in our Best of Android 2018 Awards thanks to its computational photography credentials. This is the feature developed by HTC that lets you squeeze the phones sides to summon Google Assistant.

The Google IO 2019 keynote starts at 10am ET (1pm PT, 6pm BST), and we'll be reporting live from Mountain View, California to bring you all the latest Google has to offer, and you'll be able to watch along with the Google IO livestream. This year, the update will be called Android Q. It seems that Google itself will be playing on that characteristic by marketing the Pixel 3a as providing everything people love about Google "in a phone". "These new updates will be to further increase availability of Duplex AI, as well as build on the Google Assistant to make it more market competitive", added CMR's Ram. It enables users to stream AAA game titles in Chrome browser on any mobile device, TV, computer and other devices from Google's servers.

In addition, there are a number of other operating systems, apps, and features that the company could shed light upon at its developer conference.

The Pixel 3a will run Android Pie 9.0 out of the box. Google I/O 2019 is shaping up to be one of the most important developer conferences for the company, not from software but a hardware point of view.

Android TV, Chrome OS, ARCore, Google Maps, and even Google's "Daydream" VR plans could get the much-needed attention they've lacked for some time.
