by admin, Thursday, 12 May 2022 (3 months ago)

Dear Android fans, fans of the Google product ecosystem, rejoice! After a difficult year, the Google I / O conference is back in full swing. For those who do not know, the annual conference was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, Google decided to hold a small, intimate event to unveil its innovations. Now, however, with the COVID-19 pandemic almost under control in the West, the search giant is back with the set event. Google I / O 2022 is set to become one of the biggest for Google. Ultimately, the company can use the event to unveil Android 13, a new affordable Google Pixel 6a, and to introduce the Google Pixel Watch after many delays. If you want to be ready, we are here with a detailed article that brings everything you need to know about the event.

Google I / O 2022: Everything we expect

When exactly will it start?

If you want to schedule the event in your calendar, Google I / O 2022 starts Wednesday, May 11, at 1 p.m. ET. The event is scheduled to last for a few days, but the big products may see their unveiling on the first day, which happens to be tomorrow.

Android 13 glorious revelation

Well, if you have a smartphone from a non-Google company, you are probably still waiting or just received the Android 12 update. As a result, Android 13 is a long way from being a reality. However, the laziness of Android OEMs to update their smartphones is not exactly a problem for the search giant. As a result, it will maintain its usual schedule and reveal Android 13 on Google I / O.

Android 13 is not exactly new for Pixel smartphone owners. After all, the company launched the Developer Preview program more than three months ago. The beta season also started last month. Therefore, most Android fans already know what the new update includes. Google Android 13 is not coming to revolutionize the operating system. After all, Android 12 has already done that with Material You and Monet. However, the new version will bring some improvements to the previous version and will also reveal some features that were not available before.

More details about Monet

For example, Android 13 will improve the Monet theme engine and make your hardware richer. There will also be more customization options and speed. The new update also focuses on privacy and brings AI-based navigation controls. There are also other improvements for larger devices, even computers. We expect the new update to finally target Android 13 FreeForm Windows, which has long been neglected as part of developer settings.

Among the small but nice additions, the update will also bring better Bluetooth LE support and a new Photo Picker tool. The Copy / Paste and Edit controls will also be updated. Google may also reveal which Android OEMs will be able to participate in the Android 13 beta event. We expect the worldwide release to take place sometime in September or October. There is already a list of Xiaomi devices that will qualify for the Android 13 update.

Google Pixel 6a

Google I / O has always been an event focused on software and developers. However, this is a trend that is coming to change this, and Google is going to follow suit. The company will also take the opportunity to unveil the long-rumored Google Pixel 6a.

As the name suggests, this is a continuation of the a series of affordable Pixel smartphones. In this case, we will have a more affordable version of the Pixel 6. Rumor has it that it will be a slightly smaller version with a few hardware cuts to make it more affordable. According to rumors, the phone will have a 6.2-inch Full HD + screen. At this time, it is not clear whether it has a 90 Hz refresh rate or just 60 Hz. The phone will not carry the same impressive camera material, but it will still work wonders thanks to Google’s reliance on software. Rumor has it that it will come with the best camera in its class.

The Pixel 6a will retain the design of the series

Interestingly, the phone will carry the Tensor chip, further extending the availability of Google’s proprietary chipset. The company usually follows the path of August to release Pixel-a smartphones, but perhaps, the Pixel 6a comes earlier to change things a bit. This gives users plenty of time to decide whether to opt for this more affordable version or whether they will wait for the Pixel 7 series to be released in October.

Google Pixel Clock

Oh yes, the Google Pixel Watch. This legendary product is finally out, or at worst just an official teaser. We’re still betting on the first chance, after all, Google is making some crazy marketing moves to promote this product. I may be too busy with conspiracy theories, but the case of the Pixel Watch forgotten in a restaurant just can’t be digested. Google’s products have had a lot of leaks for a while now and the Pixel Watch was just the ultimate target of deep leaks. Maybe this is just part of Google’s basic plan to catch the attention of the new device.

Pixel watch

Wearable has been circulating in the last 4 to 5 years. But it looks like 2022 is the year that Google will finally release a product that will push the Wear OS forward. To be more precise, wearable may be the first with Wear OS 4 to be Google’s latest attempt to make the wearable operating system as popular as Android. The company received help from Samsung last year and may have finally found a way to build a stable portable system.

The laptop will get the Apple Watch, but it has a circular dial. There are rumors of many wrist sizes and obviously, we can see some Fitbit influences here and there. After all, the search giant has acquired the legendary manufacturer of mobile devices. If the Pixel Watch does not appear here, then we can only hope to see it in the revelation of the Pixel 7 series later this year. Anyway, users can still wait for a teaser of this product at this event.

There are details about the battery and even the price that range around. So there is a good chance that this release will happen eventually.

Less likely, but good additives

Pixel Buds Pro

There is no specific information, but the company can also use the event to introduce or at least tease new wireless headphones. There are rumors that the search giant will respond to Pixel Buds Pro. (Seriously, Google is really trying to get ahead of Apple in the United States).

Google I / O Pixel Buds

There is also a small chance of a new generation of more affordable Pixel Buds A-series headphones. However, this is very sketchy right now and you have to digest it with a pinch of salt. Anyway, if the Pro models are coming, we can expect ANC, new design and higher price. Some health-focused features can also be a good addition.

Pixel Fold and Android 12L

There are rumors of a foldable smartphone from Google. The test name Pixel Fold will come with Android 12L. For those who do not know, this is a special version of Android 12 with modifications for large tablet. We can hear more about the integration with folding devices in the event and the future of software for these products. We do not really expect Pixel Fold to show its face at this event, but anything can happen.

Google I / O Pixel Fold

The device was planned for early 2022, but Google seems to have removed it for now. Anyway, we can expect to hear more by October.

More software updates and products on Google I / O 2022

The search giant will also use the event to reveal more details about Google TV, Chrome OS, YouTube, Maps, Assistant, etc. At the same time, we expect the release of new Nest Home, Chromecast and other solutions.

Google I / O

There are rumors of a Nest Hubt Tablet 2-in-1 and a cheaper Chromecast without 4K support. However, there is almost no evidence of release at this time. Anyway, hope is still in the air. We can also see the search giant playing with the AR and VR department, in the final analysis, anyway everything is about metaverse.

Google I / O 2022 – The Biggest Ever?

Google I / O could end up delivering on everything promised in this article. However, at the same time, it could end up being a disappointment for those who expect a lot. The best thing to do is to relax the expectations and just wait for the event. You can see it herebut we will cover all the details in Gizchina.
