In a report published last December, Android Police's David Ruddock wrote that Google would launch the two phones via USA carrier Verizon in the spring of 2019. After playing with the premium smartphones for several years, now the Search giant is making a move with newer products in the market.

According to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, Google is planning to launch its first lower-priced smartphone at some point this year in an aggressive hardware push to bring users into its ecosystem. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice. In comparison, Google's latest smartphone model, the Pixel series launched in October previous year, was priced at $799 United States dollars.

The Pixel "Lite," if it ends up with that name, has leaked like a sieve.

Pixel 3 Lite purportedly has the same 5.5-inch screen size as the Pixel 3, but will carry a lower resolution 2,220 x 1,080 IPS panel compared to the FHD+ OLED on the latter.

New smart speakers and security cameras aren't especially surprising. In addition, we know it plans to release its flagship Pixel phone.

Google Pixel 3 was announced back in October and presented Android fans with a number of notable improvements from its predecessor. Pricing information isn't yet concrete but the expectation is that Google will undercut Apple's iPhone XR by a significant margin. It's not clear what's expected to change on the new Home speaker, however. 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. Also, the "smartwatch [that will] compete with the Apple Watch" will likely be called the Pixel Watch, considering what Google has done with the Pixel brand so far.

And lastly, the company is reportedly working on a new security camera.

According to blog 9to5Google, the smartwatch was planned for the October 2018 event, but had to be delayed at the last minute.

The new web camera from Google will occur with a rebranding of Nest after it has been integrated into the Google hardware team.
