According to “one person with direct knowledge of the matter”, Google will launch a new Nest home security camera. "New products planned for this year include smart speakers, wearables and web cameras, sources familiar with the company's plans told the Nikkei Asian Review". Google also experimented with Android One platform for entry-level phones in India. The Google Pixel family has grown in terms of market share over the past year by approximately 0.13-percent, the source says, citing IDC.

After launching three generations of premium Pixel phones, Google is said to be working on affordable smartphones aimed at emerging markets, according to a new report.

That strategy changed with the arrival of the first Google Pixel in 2016. The question centered on which you, our readers, would rather buy: a flagship version of the Google Pixel 3, or one of the alleged Google Pixel 3 Lite devices we expect to see this year?

The company will purportedly not be abandoning its premium line and will launch premium variants of the Google Pixel 4 as normal.

Tipster Evan Blass, better known via his Twitter handle @evleaks, predicted that Google would finally launch its long-awaited Pixel Watch smartwatch during its Made By Google event in October 2018. The budget Pixel phones are no surprise as we have even seen hands on videos of them in recent times as Google attempts to draw more uses into its ecosystem.

Google Pixel 3 was announced back in October and presented Android fans with a number of notable improvements from its predecessor.

Last but not least, Google will release its first smartwatch. The report mentions statistics from the IDS that show Google sold some 3.45 million Pixel units in 2017 and 4.68 million Pixel units a year ago. Moreover, it's unconfirmed whether it will come with a wholly new smart speaker or will be an updated version of the old Home products. The presentations might offer hints about future hardware from Google.
