On Wednesday, September 30, Google will present its latest hardware innovations. Called "Launch Night In", the event will be an opportunity to discover a new generation of Pixel smartphones, as well as improved versions of Google Home speakers and Chromecast. A Reddit user had posted a live image of the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G, giving us a glimpse at the back panel design.

Google recently - and finally - sent out press invitations for this new launch event.

Google has just released Android 11, which has already begun to reach Pixel phones. Livestream details are yet to be announced but it will most likely happen through YouTube. The phone is speculated to sport a 6-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The handset is said to be powered by a mighty processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 765 SoC. The new Pixel phone will also pack a dual rear camera setup, with a primary 12.2-megapixel camera and an ultra-wide lens. The smartphone might have a bigger 4,000mAh battery to support 5G networks.

That isn't always it - the long-leaked Android TELEVISION dongle codenamed Sabrina still hasn't been revealed, so this would be the best time for it to lastly get the spotlight.

Apple Fitness + - In lieu of going to the local gym, Fitness + is here with video workouts that integrate with your Apple Watch. On the fitness front, watchOS 7 adds four new workouts: dance, functional strength training, core training and cooldown.

The name of "Google Chromecast with Google TV" is the most awkward of Google names, so it's flawless.

But with the advent of streaming devices like Amazon Fire TV Stick and Roku, the brand has lost its momentum. This new device is a definite addition to its lineup. The fabric on the Nest, as seen in the Google video previously, will come in at least two colour's - grey with a hint of blue, and soft pink colour.

Oppo, which released the Android 11 features as part of its ColorOS 11 public beta version, is set to officially unveil the software on Monday.

If you have a Pixel phone, chances are that the update has already arrived on your device.
