Android Q

According to the previous update cycle, Android  The beta version of Q will be open this month, and the official version will be accompanied by Pixel in October this year. The 4 series flagship was officially released. First of all, in terms of naming, there are many desserts starting with the letter Q, but they seem to be mostly from markets outside the United States. I don’t know if local consumers are familiar with them, including Qurabiya (almond muffins) and Quindim (Brazil coconut cakes). Queen  Of Puddings (Queen of Pudding), Quesito (Puerto Rican Cheese), Quince (wood pear) and more.

From the current release of Android Q Beta 2, the biggest improvement is interactive gestures, almost andiPhonesame. Slide the pill button to the left to return to the last used app, swipe up and hold to enter the multitasking view, and the entire gesture transition animation has no delay and the interaction is smoother.

In addition, Google is testing an intimate "card pop-up" feature designed to optimize the experience of adding contacts through third-party apps. Obviously, this feature can eliminate the trouble of frequently switching front and back applications.

If you are a raw powder, Android Q is still worth a look, because you should get some features that you couldn't use before, such as screen recording, dark theme, etc. (already implemented in other custom UI). By the way, there is an unfortunate news that Android Q should still not join the long screen capture feature. No surprise, the Android Q beta will support more Android after the conference.Mobile phoneBut you need to brush the machine yourself.

Cloud game Stadia

Last month, Google unveiled a new basedcloud serviceThe game platform Google Stadia, the purpose is to let players play 3A masterpiece on any device, all the operations are carried out by the cloud, relying on the network to transfer the game to the player's device in real time, which seems to be a tentacle in the upcoming 5G. And the way the game is played.

Stadia has only one requirement for player devices, supports Chrome, and has a network connection. In other words, in theory, as long as the network quality is good enough, players can play real 3A masterpieces with uncompromising picture quality and operation delay on devices with weak performance. Currently confirmed support for the game "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey" (Assassin's  Creed Odyssey) and Doom: Enternal.

However, there are still a few mysteries about Stadia. We don't know if Stadia will adopt a subscription model or how much it costs. The game classifications on Stadia are also a mystery. In March, when Google announced Stadia at the Game Developers Conference, the company said it would provide more details in "this summer." Therefore, it is more likely that Google will also disclose some information related to Stadia in advance at the upcoming I/O Developers Conference.

Google Assistant (Google Assistant)

In previous years, Google also introduced new features for Google Assistant at the I/O Developers Conference. Last year, the new features included a new assistant voice that required the child to say "please" when requesting the assistant and to ask the assistant two questions at the same time. But the real focus of last year's conference was Duplex, an artificial intelligence that can talk like humans.

Duplex can pause like a normal human after a few words, and also say "呃", "嗯" and other modal particles. The significance of Duplex is to let software make calls instead of humans, such as booking a restaurant. Once the product is released, it has been a huge controversy. This year, as Google continues to try to push the service to more people and devices, Google is likely to still release multiple updates for the Assistant.

Virtual reality and augmented reality

Three years ago, Google launched the Daydream virtual reality platform at the I/O Developers Conference. On this platform, people can put their mobile phones into VR machines by putting special headsets on their mobile phones. But recently, Google has been silent on Daydream products and virtual reality.


But it is not the case with augmented reality. For example, Google launched a technology called Lens at the developer conference two years ago. This tool allows users to search for item information via the phone camera. For example, when your mobile phone camera is aimed at a restaurant, you can see other people's online reviews of the restaurant.

If Google launches some new features or products for AR or VR this year, it is also expected.

Pixel 3a Collection

According to well-known breaking person Roland  Quandt's tweet information shows that Pixal 3a will be equipped with a resolution of 2220*1080 at 5.6 inchesOLEDscreen. In terms of hardware, Pixel 3a is equipped with 4GB of memory, 3000mAh capacity battery, Titan M security chip and Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor. 64GB Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL retail prices are $399 and $479, respectively.

On the camera side, the back of the fuselage is equipped with a 12.2 megapixel single camera with optical and electronic image stabilization. The front of the fuselage is 8 million pixels from the camera head, capable of shooting 30fps4Kcamera. Interestingly, Pixel  3a's promotional materials show support for fast charging, long battery life, Night Vision mode and portrait mode.

But natural Pixel  The 3a series will also shrink. First, the headset is no longer included in the package, but the 3.5mm headphone port will remain. At Pixel 3/3 Google offers a pair of USB-C headphones in XL, but the Pixel 3 series does not have a traditional headphone port. Also Pixel The 3a series does not yet support wireless charging, so Google will cut this feature to reduce costs.

Nest Hub Max

Last month, Google seemed to have accidentally leaked its own products. The company mentioned Nest on the online store website.  Home Hub, the description includes the product with a "10-inch HD display and stereo speakers." According to reports, the device is also equipped with a built-in Nest Cam. Over the past two years, Google has typically released several hardware products at its annual "Google Manufacturing" campaign. However, it is not uncommon to release important hardware products at the I/O Developers Conference. Three years ago, Google released the initial Google at the I/O Developers Conference.  Home smart speaker.


The rumors that Google will launch the mid-range version of its flagship phone have long been rumored, and the new product is said to be named Pixel 3a. In another inadvertent "disclosure incident" in Google's online store, the company mentioned "Pixel 3a - New Products" on the mobile phone product page of the website, and the content was immediately deleted.

Earlier this week, Google’s online store website mentioned “May 7th, Pixel World has a major update”; this day coincides with the day of the I/O Developers Conference.
