Google I/O Event-What to Expect?
We are expecting to see many software and hardware announcements in the Google I/O event this year. At I/O 2019, Google announced the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. Similarly, this year we expect the announcement of rumored Pixel 4a at the event. The Pixel 4a expects to include a hole-punch display, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a square camera bump.
The indication of smartphones code names found recently in Google’s apps suggests that the company will at least launch two mid-range phones in 2020. One of them will be powered by Snapdragon 730, while the other one with Snapdragon 765.
Other than the announcements of new smartphones, we expect Google to also shed light on the next version of Android. As a result, Google will officially release the Android 11 beta version at the event. The first Android Q beta launched in March last year and the third beta was released at the event. We can conclude that Google could follow the same timeline this year as well.
At last year’s event, Nest Hub Max was also announced which means we can expect Google to reveal more Nest hardware at I/O 2020.
With the info of when the event is happening, all that’s left is ticketing and pricing. Google will expectedly employ a raffle for the participants to fill the application in order to note their area of technical interest and reason for attending the event. There’s about a week for the attendees to file the application. So technically, there is no rush. The entire process will kick off sometime next month in February.
