  • Google Home

That's according to Android Police, who don't have many concrete details about this new Chromebook Pixel yet, but suggest that it could be similar to the Bison device that we heard rumblings about previous year.

It's obviously still possible that this new Chromebook Pixel is a completely separate product from Bison, but the timings do match up. The report states that in addition to its two handsets, Google will unveil a new Chromebook Pixel and a smaller version of Google Home later this year. Amazon has significant lead in getting its Echo into homes and has aggressively built up the capabilities of its Alexa voice assistant. This company has updated its Home smart speaker in a bid to compete with Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN). It is the main driving force behind Google Assistant and users need to first and foremost concentrate on the getting it to learn everything about them.

There were already rumors that Google might be working on a new Chromebook device in 2016, which was codenamed "Bison" and was supposed to have a slim form-factor with a thickness under 10mm. Aside from its diminutive size, the new speaker is also likely to carry a smaller price tag than the current model, which is now available for $129.

Today's report also claims that Google is prepping a mini version of the Google Home. The original Echo lacked a few features which were later added to Amazon's diminutive Echo Dot, of which one was the ability to connect to a separate speaker via Bluetooth or an auxiliary cable.

Whether it comes with Bison's rumored 12.3-inch screen and Wacom stylus is unknown. The source didn't divulge details but the device would likely take on Amazon's low-priced Echo Dot.
