Google might launch a reborn Chromebook Pixel and smaller Home

We know that Google's Pixel 2 phones are on their way, but according to recent rumors, the company might be releasing a total of four new pieces of hardware at an event this fall.

To recall, a report from March this year had declared the Chromebook Pixel lineup dead, with a Google official indicating that the company wasn't planning on updating the series. The publication thinks the new notebook might have something to do with the mysterious Project Bison that Google was involved in previous year.

The specs of this new Chromebook are now unknown, but going by the specs of various Chromebooks Pixel, we can expect them to be impressive. Reportedly, there would also be a smaller version of the Home smart speaker. Google, on the other hand, is following the lead and coming up with its own competing products.

Today's report also claims that Google is prepping a mini version of the Google Home.

Judge, suspect shot outside OH courtroom
Bruzzese was taken into surgery, authorities said, and was in stable condition, according to the local news station WTOV9. Abdalla said a second man was in the passenger seat of the suspect's auto , which was parked near the shooting.

The move may help Google challenge Amazon's dominance in the growing smart device market. In the Amazon Echo Dot, that meant lower quality speakers.

Last year, Google held an event to launch the first Pixel smartphone on 4 October, so we could be seeing its replacement - and a smaller Google Home - in the next few weeks. That system was supposed to be a convertible PC with a tablet mode, a 12.3-inch display and an optional Wacom stylus, but there's no certainty that this design is the one that launches. The new model would go head-to-head with the Amazon Echo Dot, so it's no surprise that Google would want to release a slimmed down version of its rival product.

The website doesn't have a lot in the way of concrete details about the Chromebook, but it does speculate the new device may have been borne out of Project Bison.
