What to expect at Google I/O 2021
Google regularly hosts this developer conference to keep them abreast of the latest innovations and to help them update their applications. But it also showed consumers new products or new technologies, and even new hardware. For example, at Google I/O 2019, announced updates to Google News, Search, Lens, Duplex, Assistant, and Android Q, and launched the Nest Hub Max and Pixel 3a series.
Google often uses the I/O developer conference to officially announce its next major Android update and introduce consumers to the first public beta to test new features. The final version of Android 12 may not be officially released for supported phones until September.
Google Pixel 5a
Google might have announced only Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 in October 2020, but there are already rumors that the next generation of Pixel smartphones is expected to become the Pixel 5a. This will be the Pixel 5’s mid-range product. Some people suggest that the Pixel 5a will launch on June 11, 2021.
It is expected that we might see viewing the Pixel 5a on Google I/O this year.
Google Pixel Buds A
Google released the second-gen version of the Pixel Buds in 2020, which is its first entry into the fiercely competitive real wireless headphone field. Now, there are rumors that Google may release a cheap variant of Buds and it may land as Google Pixel Buds A.
The tech giant will most likely introduce these new headphones into Google I/O 2021. The earlier information about the arrival of Pixel Buds A has already leaked. Of course, this does not guarantee that we will see them during Google I / O, but they are likely to appear soon.
Codename: ‘Whitechapel’ in Google Pixel 6
There are rumors that Google may launch its first custom mobile processor in the upcoming Google Pixel 6 this year. While we’re pretty sure Google I/O won’t see the Pixel 6 launch, it’s possible that Google will publicize the processor itself codenamed “Whitechapel.”
