The new phone will be the vanguard of Google's efforts to expand its hardware business. The Mountain View-based company is building a new version of its popular Google Home smart speaker, a first-party Pixel smartwatch, and a new Nest security camera. It is expected to be priced lower than Apple's cheapest iPhone. After playing with the premium smartphones for several years, now the Search giant is making a move with newer products in the market.

Google's Pixel 3 was launched in October previous year, and the smartphone has been in the news for a rumoured "Lite" variant. In comparison, Google's latest smartphone model, the Pixel series launched in October a year ago, was priced at $799 Dollars.

Interestingly, the second-place victor is the Google Pixel 3 XL Lite, with 26 percent of the vote.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are surely partly responsible for the achievement.

Even Gilligan himself acknowledged that when accepting the show's first Emmy for Best Drama. The series originally aired on AMC , with episodes then moving to Netflix .

The market research firm recently insisted Google's Pixel brand is now the "fastest-growing major smartphone brand in the United States in the fourth quarter of 2018". It's also been a while since the original Google Home was released, and Nikkei pegs it as getting an improved refresh - though I'd still love to see a water-resistant unit for the bathroom.

It's unclear exactly what hardware upgrades would be featured in the new Pixel-branded security cameras.

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

Google will, the sources claim, aim to launch its Google Pixel Lite at a price point much lower than Apple's least expensive iPhone in a bid to convince on-the-fence buyers over to its ecosystem. 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. According to Nikkei's source, the latter is a smartwatch that will compete with the Apple Watch. With Nest merged into Google proper any new hardware out of that department would be courtesy of Google at some level, and Nest releases new cams all the time.
