Last-minute leaks confirm Google Home Mini name, design, pricing and release date

Last-minute leaks confirm Google Home Mini name, design, pricing and release date

Today, Walmart mistakenly leaked some new pictures of the Google Home Mini and the Pixel 2 XL.

Google's presentation kicks off at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET, with CNET's preshow starting 30 minutes early. We are expecting Google's 2017 flagship phones called Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google Home Mini and Daydream. "That display should be an LG-made 6" 2,880x1,440 OLED, by the way. Like the Amazon Echo Dot, the Google Home Mini will also skip the very big speaker setup for a smaller form factor. Google Home Mini expected to be no different than its older sibling as far as basic functionalities are concerned.

As per the listing, Google Home Mini will carry a price-tag of $49 in the United States and will start shipping October 19.

There are also rumors that the search mammoth will completely ditch the audio jack port in favor and to take advantage of the USB-C technology. Now we can see both the front and the back side of the device.

A few hours back, popular leakster Evan Blass leaked the Google Pixel 2 XL frontal. 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. It doesn't seem any other Pixelbook details were leaked through the reseller. Amazon has its own Alexa voice assistant in Echo Dot while Google is expected to rope in its own Assistant in Google Home Mini. The wearable virtual reality kit is suggested to come in three colorways - charcoal, fog, and coral - and a more expensive $99 retail price tag when it hit the marketplaces.
