There are just a few hours left until the start of Google I/O 2023, Google’s annual conference for developers. The Keynote of the event, the streaming in which the future products and services of the Alphabet company will be discussed, will take place today, May 10, at 13.00 hours ET; that is, at 19.00 hours in Spain.
This year’s conference will be held in person at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California, although with a limited audience. The event will be streamed live on its official website and on Google’s YouTube channel, and will be presented by Sundar Pichai, CEO of the company.
While some announcements are practically obligatory for Google, other product announcements are also expected, about which Google has said practically nothing so far, but which will surely be seen in this Google I/O 2023. Below, we will review the most important ones.
The most obvious announcement of all. Google I/O, a conference aimed at developers, is the ideal occasion for Google to announce more features of Android 14, its future operating system.
So far, a preliminary version for developers and two beta versions have been released. It is known that Android 14 will be heavily focused on improved security, optimized resource management, more accessibility features and better support for tablets and foldable devices. At this conference, we can expect more user-oriented features, as well as an approximate release date for Android 14.
There have been many leaks about this future improved version of the Google Pixel 7, launched last year. Pixel 7A will be a somewhat smaller version of the Pixel 7, trimming something cameras and some materials of the mobile. It would be launched at $499 in the United States, and could be available in some regions starting tomorrow, May 11.
If we go by the rumors, the Pixel 7A would include a 6.1-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate; a Tensor G2 chip; 8 gb of RAM; 128 gb of storage; a dual camera system with a 64-megapixel main camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide module; a 13-megapixel front camera; a 4,300 mAh battery, with 18 W wired charging and wireless charging
Pixel Fold, also known by its internal name: Felix, would be Google’s first foldable mobile, designed to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the future iPhone 15. If we follow the rumors, its design would be similar to the Oppo Find and Find N2, and would have an interior screen with a 7.5-inch landscape format.
Its main screen would be OLED, it would have a 120 Hz refresh rate and its bezels would be quite striking. Google Fold would include a 5.8-inch cover screen, as well as a Tensor G2 chip, two 12-megapixel cameras on the back and two other 8-megapixel front modules for both the main screen and the cover. Google’s new bet would be launched in the United States from June 27, at about $1,799.
First shown at Google I/O 2022, the Pixel Tablet is one of the sure bets of this new edition, and its release date and starting price are expected to be officially announced this time, along with the device’s features.
Pixel Tablet would feature an 11-inch 1,600 x 2,560 pixel LCD display, a Tensor G2 chip, as well as a speaker charging dock, which could turn the tablet into a Nest Hub-like smart speaker. In addition, rumors indicate that it could have 18 W wireless charging and stylus input.
