This is the Google Pixel 5

Despite of having a Not-So-Premium Plastic Body, Single Camera, and a Small Battery, the Pixel 4A is a huge success, and that's because Google nailed it with the Pricing and Camera.

With the Pixel 5, Google is planning to follow same approach, that's a Plastic Body with Rear-Fingerprint Scanner, and Dual Cameras on Back. Google is using Snapdragon 765 5G CPU in this one.

Basically, it can be seen, Google is mainly focusing on two things, that's Android Software and Camera. There's also a lot Cheaper Google Pixel 4A 5G Coming in with nearly same Specs like Pixel 5 but downgrade Design.

This year there's no Flagship Pixel device like with Higher-Refresh rate, or Higher Megapixels count, or Snapdragon 865 CPU, or IP68 Rating. Main focus is again on Camera, which are unbeatable and Software.

Google Home & Home Mini has arrived in India
Google India today announced the Google Home and Home Mini Smart Speakers with Google Assistant. The Standard Home is priced at Rs. 9,999 while the Home Mini costs Rs. 4,449. 

Below are some amazing things you can do with your Google Home products:

  • Find my phone: When you lose your phone in the couch cushions, your Assistant can find it for you. “Hey Google, find my phone” will ring your Android phone (even if it’s on silent) or your iPhone.
  • Set a sleep timer: Fall asleep to the sweet sounds of your favorite music or podcast by saying, “Hey Google, set a sleep timer for 30 minutes.”
  • Play news by voice on your TV: Stay on top of current events with YouTube news playlists from sources like ABC, Fox and NBC. With a Chromecast-connected TV, you can ask say: “Hey Google, play the news on my TV” or “Ok Google, play sports news on my TV.”
  • Turn the TV on and off: With Google Home, Chromecast, and a compatible TV you can just say “Hey Google, turn off the TV.”
  • Enable night mode: In night mode, Mini’s lights dim and the volume lowers so that you you don’t disturb others in your household when it’s late (or early).
  • Set a default TV or speaker: Choose a Chromecast-connected TV to be your default screen, so you don’t need to mention the device's name in your voice command. When you say “Play yoga videos,” they’ll play on the TV you’ve set as the default. It works the same way for speakers connected to Chromecast Audio—you can designate a group of speakers that cover several rooms (“first floor,” for example) as the default. Then say “Hey Google, play workout playlist” and it will automatically start playing on that group of speakers.
Both the Google Home and Home Mini will be available starting today at Flipkart, Reliance Digital, Croma, Vijay Sales, Sangeeta Mobiles, and Poorvika Stores.
