Google October 4 Event

Google has announced a hardware announcement event for October 4. The event will be livestreamed on Google's YouTube page. Google's announcement for the event channels Game of Thrones and says "October is coming."

Google's announcement page for the event shows a smartphone shaped device in the center. This has helped fuel speculation that the event will be about new smartphones. Google has reportedly chosen Pixel for the new line of smartphones.

An Ars Technica report says two phones should be expected at the event. They include a 5-inch phone possibly named "Pixel" and a 5.5-inch version possibly named "Pixel XL." Ars says the Pixel line will be a premium phone line from Google.

It is possible Google could also discuss other hardware at the event. For example, we are still waiting for mroe on details about the Google Home advice announced earlier this year. That device is expected to be released before the end of the year.
