Google I / O is back after missing out on 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The virtual event will take place from Tuesday, May 18 to Friday, May 21. The company’s CEO Sundar Pichai and other Google executives are expected to appear on the portion of the show where they may have important new updates to Android, new hardware, and more. You can check out the Google I / O 2021 at the link embedded below.
For strangers, Google I / O is the company’s annual developer conference, where new software and various updates for existing apps and services are announced. It is primarily aimed at developers. However, there are also some consumer-oriented events.
We can assume that the company is announcing the next version of Android, which is already in the developer preview. The upcoming Android 12 could have several tricks up its sleeve. It could come with a new theme system that would allow the software to automatically choose a suitable color for the notification panel, a darker accent color for the tiles for quick setting, and some sections of the Settings app.
In terms of hardware, we expect Google to announce the Pixel 4a successor at its Google I / O 2021. If the leaks are to be accepted, the pixel 5a looks identical to the pixel 4a 5G. Rumor has it that there is a 6.2-inch OLED display with an FHD + resolution and a high refresh rate. We can expect a 12MP primary camera accompanied by a 16MP ultra wide angle lens. It could come with a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as stereo speakers.
The company is also being urged to announce a cheaper variant of its Pixel Buds in the form of Pixel Buds A. Google will very likely introduce these new earbuds to I / O. The device in the leaked poster shows a pair of earphones that are a slightly different shade of green than the one available on the Pixel Buds. We saw earlier that the product was listed in an email sent to people on the Google Nest mailing list.
