Google may unveil Pixel 3 Lite and new smartwatch in 2019

The new phone will be the vanguard of Google's efforts to expand its hardware business.

The Nikkei Asian Review's sources also reported that new smart speakers, wearables and web cameras will be arriving this year (as well as the premium Pixel 4 too of course). In Canada, Apple's "entry-level" iPhone starts at $1,029 - though through a limited-time trade-in promotion, it's possible to purchase the smartphone for $649.

Google is not a new player in the hardware market.

While Google's Pixel line of smartphones has been popular with Android enthusiasts since its inception, it has so far struggled to match rivals from the likes of Samsung and Apple in terms of relevance and sales.

The news comes from Nikkei Asian Review, which says that Google plans to unveil its first lower-priced smartphone this year "as part of an aggressive push into hardware that it hopes will draw more users into its ecosystem", according to sources. The Pixel 3 Lite, for instance, may be launched earlier in the year, while the Pixel 4 makes its debut in October.

The new Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite is rumoured to be launching on the Verizon network in the United States this spring. When not on sale, the Pixel 3 starts at $999 CAD. Google has plans to announce some other smart products.

What Google hardware are you most looking forward to? The report mentions statistics from the IDS that show Google sold some 3.45 million Pixel units in 2017 and 4.68 million Pixel units previous year.

Google Home will also see an update according to the report. It is unclear whether this means an entirely new speaker or just updated specs to the old one but we expect Google to bring an entirely new speaker with the same design cues as the original.

"By contrast, Google Pixel bucked the downtrend and increased its U.S. smartphone shipments by an impressive 43 percent YoY during the quarter". While we've figured Google had some first-party smartwatch in the works since a job listing went up last week, Nikkei's report seems to indicate there's more than one on the way, or at least being worked on.
