The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL weren’t the only upcoming Google products that were recently leaked. The cheaper Google Home Mini, Chromebook Pixel 3 and Daydream View 2 VR headset were all revealed in a massive leak yesterday and all of which are expected to be revealed by Google on Oct. 4.

Google Home Mini

First up is the Google Home Mini, which appears to be the smaller and cheaper version of the Google Home smart speaker. Photos of the Home Mini were leaked by Droid Life yesterday, and it will be available in three colors: chalk (grey), charcoal (black) and coral (pink).

The Google Home Mini features a small hockey puck-like speaker. It appears that the smart speaker will still be wired and will feature LED lights on top, which will most likely function as the indicator to show that a user is interacting with Google Assistant.

The Home Mini is expected to function like the original Google Home. Users will be able to ask Google Assistant to perform tasks like setting up reminders, helping with schedules, play music and control other smart home devices.

One major difference between the original model and the Google Home Mini aside from the size is the price. The Google Home Mini speaker is said to only cost $49. Its small size and cheaper pricing are seen as Google's way of competing against Amazon's Echo Dot, as pointed out by TechCrunch.

Google Pixelbook Is The Chromebook Pixel 3

Droid Life revealed in its report that Google’s upcoming new Chromebook Pixel will officially be called the Pixelbook. Like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the PixelBook is also expected to debut next month on Oct. 4.

The Google Pixelbook will be a premium Chromebook running Google’s Chrome OS operating system. It will only be available in silver and will have three storage options: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.

Since Google intends to sell the PixelBook as a high-end Chromebook, customers should expect an expensive price. The PixelBook will start at $1,199 for the 128GB model, while the 256GB and 512GB models will cost $1,399 and $1,749, respectively.

In terms of design, the Pixelbook differs from the Chromebook Pixel 2 in two ways. First, the PixelBook features a new hinge design, which allows users to fold the device into tablet mode. The second and most interesting difference is that the Pixelbook will have an optional stylus.

Called the Pixelbook Pen, the stylus will cost an extra $99. Droid Life says that the PixelBook Pen will be pressure-sensitive and will have tilt support. Specs for the Pen weren’t given, but it will supposedly have no lag when using it on the Pixelbook.

Google Daydream View 2 VR Headset

The last thing that Droid Life leaked yesterday was the new Google Daydream View 2 virtual reality headset. This new iteration of the VR headset looks very similar to the original models that were introduced last year. The main difference between the two appears to be the materials being used.

The original Daydream View headset features a soft cloth finish. This new model however features a more rugged and slightly rougher material which might be nylon. Perhaps Google changed the material to make it more sweat resistant.

Unfortunately, no information was provided on the internals of the Daydream View 2 headset. However, the new model will still include the wireless controller and will cost $20 more than the original model at $99. The price bump may indicate that Google has added some upgrades to the new model that’s not yet been revealed.
