Thanks, internet: Google's Oct. 4 event gets spoiled by leaks

Culture
[MUSIC] Googlicious. What's going on? Brian Tong here, and welcome to Googlicious, for everything Google you can think of. All the big Google leaks from last week dropped right after we posted our show so we're gonna have to play a little catch up like that's what happens with the weekly show. So I'm sorry you all but let's get up to speed. Now you can basically thank DroidLife for spilling all the beans with crystal clear images And new details for Google October 4th event. Now if you don't wanna see this, you really should just stop watching right now. So first up, the Pixel 2 will come in three colors, Just Black, Clearly White, and an all new Kinda Blue because That sounded better than calling it periwinkle and yes I know my colors. Now it will come in 64 gigs and 128 gig options and priced at $649 and $749. As for the big boy, the pixel 2XL will come in just black or white. The black and white combo that, they should have just called Panda. Panda, panda, panda! I know you know that. Now it will also come in 64 gigs, and 128 options, priced at 849 and 949. Up next from Droid Life, the The Google Home Mini- their answer to the Amazon Echo Dot. It will be priced at $49 and come in three colors: chalk, charcoal and coral with a fabric top, plastic bottom and a row of lights when you interact with it like the big boy Google home. Also a recent FCC listing by google, describes it as the media streaming device that has 2.4 and 5 gigahertz WiFi support with Bluetooth LE as well. All right a new google day dream will also make an appearance with similar colors in charcoal, fog and coal. With a more stream line design. It will be using a finer nylon type mesh material. It will include the controller and resell for $99, $20 more than the current Daydream and we expect some new tech in there as well. [SOUND] And guess what, Droid Life isn't done yet, dropping another bomb with the new Google Pixelbook. Now Google looks to embrace the pixel branding moving forward. It will come in silver with 128 256 and 512 GB storage options starting at $1,149. Now this Google Pixelbook will be able to fold into a tablet and support its own Pixelbook pen for 99 bucks that's pressure sensitive with tilt support. I didn't see that one coming at all for this keynote. And Droid Life just Spoiled it all. But you know what? That's just how it is these days. It's gonna be a hefty announcement but we'll get more details soon so stay tuned for October the fourth. Now the latest Google app beta is rolling out and reviews new features for the Google Assistant but the rumored squeezable frame of the pixel two looks like it's getting a confirmation. With a feature called Active Edge. Now we've seen this functionality first from ATC's U11 phone, but squeezing the frame will allow you to do things like squeeze for your assistant. In fact Google liked it so much that they recently announced the roughly 2,000 HTC employees who worked on the Pixel will be joining Alphabit's hardware division moving forward. In a deal valued at $1.1 billion. Now HTC will still run its own smartphone business, but this move was for talent to allow Google to continue its path of controlling its own software and hardware ala Apple. All right, Nest is up next whose parter company is the Googs. They also dropped a whole bunch of toys last week With most of them aimed at home security. Now the new one is their Nest Hello, a video doorbell that's basically a nest cam for your front door or back door that's the answer to the popular ring doorbell. It looks nice and compact and will be available in 2018 with no pricing just yet. Now Nest also introduced their own modular home security system called Nest Secure, with a central hub called the Nest Guard. And a variety of sensors, and even a tag that can arm or disarm the system as you come and go. Now the starter pack costs $499 and ships in November. Plus there's a new Nest Thermostat E, that has most of the functionality of the current line, but comes in a more affordable $169 package with a frosted plastic design, and if you're still looking for tech fashion that you would actually want to rock, Levi's and Google are finally releasing the Levi's Commuter Trucker, formally known as Project Jacquard, that allows you to swipe and tap on the left cuff of the jacket to control Your smartphone for both Android or iOS. Now, it will be priced at $350 and available in only a few stores this week with a wider roll out and online sales at levis.com on October 2nd. Now, I'm gonna check it out, is it overkill? May be and it's really cool commuters or people who want and expensive fancy denim jacket. As long as they make one, and the men small or children's large, I'll give it a shot. All right, that's gonna do it for this week. You can email me at googlicious@cnet.com ot tweet me @briantong. Thanks so much for watching, we'll catch you all next time for some more of that Googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious. [MUSIC]
