Google hosted its annual hardware release event last Wednesday, September the 30th. From brand new smartphones to speakers and TV, here are all the latest Google devices. Get them all in stock at your store and sell away with a computer repair shop software.
A COVID special event
This year, Google tried to keep its annual launch event “short” and “safe” due to the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic.
The tech giant company went live on its YouTube channel to introduce the latest and greatest Google devices . All so that people could have a seat on their couch and watch the 30-minute long livestream from the ease of their homes. #respect
Fun fact: The event was at 2 PM, which pretty sure is a day time, but Google called it the Launch “Night In”. Nobody knows why.
Unpacking of latest Google devices
Google’s 2020 device box has a total of four items and two hints: affordable and accessible. Here they are.
- Pixel 4a 5G Phone
- Pixel 5 Phone
- Nest Audio Speakers
- Chromecast TV remote
Pixel 5 — Google’s step towards 5G
The Pixel 5 smartphone is all about taking the users to the wonders of the 5G technology. Google has also done a great job at keeping this phone environmentally friendly because It is 100 percent made of recycled aluminium.
Major features include:
- 5G connectivity with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset
- Water and dust resistance
- Wireless and even reverse wireless charging
- Fingerprint security
- Exceptional camera upgrades (12.2 MP dual camera, 8 MP selfie camera)
- 8GB RAM and 128GB storage
The company claims that this phone will “make its users’ everyday look like a movie” and users are all in to try it out.
Google has polished off the Pixel 5 smartphone with a price tag of $699 only. On top of that, the company has presented its users with an offer to trade-in their Pixel 4 phones to upgrade to Pixel 5 for just $365. See affordable!
Pixel 5 is now up for preorder.
Pixel 4a 5G — An advanced version of the Pixel 4a
The new Pixel 4a 5G is the middle child of the Pixel smartphone family. It’s younger than Pixel 5 but bigger and smarter than Pixel 4a.
As the name suggests, this phone carries the 5G party for the users who cannot afford the Pixel 5 but still want a taste of the 5G technology.
Other than the 5G support thing, Pixel 4a 5G has other specs common with the Pixel 5 champ. Like the fingerprint sensor and the camera resolutions. The 6GB RAM and 128GB memory storage are, however, a little less than the Pixel 5’s.
Well, if the Pixel 4a 5G lacks in some features, Google has done justice with its pricing. This phone will cost customers $499, $200 less than Pixel 5.
Pixel 4a 5G is not out in the market yet. It is expected to go officially on sale by the end of this year. Fingers crossed!
Nest Audio — powerful audio for your ears
For all the people who remember and love Google Home smart speaker, the Nest Audio is its long awaited successor.
The company claims that they have packed this speaker with a punch of 50% more bass and 75% more volume than the Google Home. And not just that, the Google Assistant of this thing responds twice as fast as the Google Home’s.
Just like the Pixel 5, the new Google speaker is also made of recycled material. And guess what? The “material” is not even a metal. This time it’s plastic bottles. (Shocked much?)
This smart speaker is the real deal because
- Impressive audio experience, enough to fill the entire room.
It’s audio ecosystem is powered by a 9mm tweeter for higher and better sound plus a 75mm midwoofer to pump up the bass.
- Touch control to play, pause, adjust volume, and other actions.
- Voice interaction with the Google Assistant butting up the control actions even more.
- Automated sound tuning as per the type of media playing (music, podcasts, etc.)
The Nest Audio smart speaker comes in five different refreshing colors Sand, Sage, Sky, Chalk, and Charcoal. Pick the one that goes the best with your home decor. (wink wink)
If Google’s brand-new speaker has still not made so much of an impression for you, it’s price tag definitely will. This bad boy will cost you $99 ($30 less than the Google Home speaker). Isn’t that a treat?
Nest Audio will be up for grab in the market from October 15. Google speaker lovers can place their pre-orders for now.
Chromecast — The Google TV remote
The showstopper of Google’s Launch Night is the new Chromecast remote.
To recap, Chromecast is Google’s famous TV line.
Before the remote upgrade, this Google device was
controlled by a smartphone, which was quite
frustrating for some users.
The remote has a button for Google Assistant. So,
just press the button and ask the assistant to do the
whatever you want. You’ll have much fun with this
remote, from switching the channels
to streaming online and asking non-TV related
Other buttons include volume up, down, Netflix, and YouTube. It’s not just an ordinary remot, but a complete operating system. It comes with a fresh Google TV interface that studies the stuff you often watch and then gives you personalized recommendations. Cool, right?
Last but not the least, Chromecast with Google TV can be taken home for $49 in one of the three beautiful colors, Sky, Snow, and Sunrise.
Google has tried its best to make 2020 better for tech freaks with a bundle of hardware surprise.
Everything is accessible and fairly affordable, two 5G supported Pixel phones, one powerful speaker, and a better Google TV experience with Chromecast remote.
If you own a tech shop or a cell phone repair store, these 2020 Google treats are a must-have for you. Sell the new Pixel 4a 5G, offer the smart Pixel 5trade-ins for customers’ Pixel 4a, market the Nest Audio speakers, sell, and set up Chromecasts, all with repair shop software.
Get on the Tech-tober train and make the most sales out of Google’s 2020 hardware launch.
