The Facebook page Made By Google is where the company usually announces its new products. However, the company surprised everyone when it changed its cover photo to an image that suggests a new smartphone. A Google Phone.
We are not referring to the Pixel range, but to the Google Phone, a device that has been rumored for a long time, but has never seen the light of day. We know how much Google likes to “tease” news, so we can assume an ad is coming soon.
In addition, Google published on its page an image of a smartphone in “white” with the same name as Google Phone and text in test Latin. When searching the source code of the page, we can see the possible launch date: August 3.
It sounds too good to be true. Ideally, Google would launch a new smartphone, if this should simply be the expected Google Pixel 4a but with its name hidden. We will have to wait and see.
A Google Phone would have to be the ultimate Android experience
The Pixel arrived in 2016, with the first smartphone, manufactured by HTC. This range has replaced the beloved Nexus line, which still misses today. Since then, reactions to the Pixel have been mixed.
Many users have a love-hate relationship with Google Pixel. The smartphones have gathered enough merit in the photographic department, mainly the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3A. However, compared to other devices on the market, the Pixel has disappointed more than impressed.
Since Google has Android, a device with the name “Google Phone” has high expectations. We are talking about a smartphone that must be promoted as the ultimate Android experience, with all the features and constant updates guaranteed.
If Google launches a Google Phone, it is good to update it for more than 2 years. One of the big gaps in Android is the lack of updates, something that Apple has perfected in iPhones. If they want to compete, Google will have to work hard.
