The report underscores some of the rumors that have already been floating around regarding the search giant's product plans for 2019. "New products planned for this year include smart speakers, wearables and web cameras, sources familiar with the company's plans told the Nikkei Asian Review". It is expected to be priced lower than Apple's cheapest iPhone.

In the global smartphone market, Google's share is quite low. The source also confirmed the existence of the Pixel 3 Lite - a cheaper variant of Google's current Pixel range that we've talked about before.

Most recent rumours suggest the Pixel 3 Lite lineup will feature a Snapdragon 670 or 710 chipset, 4GB of RAM, a single 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, a headphone jack and a modest 32GB of internal storage. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice. It is rumoured to host a 5.6 inch IPS Full HD+ display.

"The new phone will be the spearhead of Google's drive to expand the hardware using its operating systems", reads the report.

Since the flagship version of the vanilla Google Pixel 3 came in third place - but at 25 percent of the vote, which is not far at all from the second place victor - we can also assume that those of you who want a smaller phone aren't ready to give up flagship features to get it.

NYPD detective killed by friendly fire
The suspect, described by O'Neill as a 27-year-old career criminal, was shot multiple times and is listed as stable, O'Neill said. Dozens of officers were seen hugging and crying in the hospital lobby as Mayor Bill de Blasio arrived shortly after the shooting.

Google Home will also see an update according to the report.

Finally, the firm will be launching a new security camera, a new product line for the firm.

What Google hardware are you most looking forward to?

Google will, the sources claim, aim to launch its Google Pixel Lite at a price point much lower than Apple's least expensive iPhone in a bid to convince on-the-fence buyers over to its ecosystem. It's unclear if the publication means an update to one of Google's existing smart home speakers or an entirely new device. With Nest merged into Google proper any new hardware out of that department would be courtesy of Google at some level, and Nest releases new cams all the time.
