Following Apple’s WWDC announcement and Microsoft’s Build announcement, Google announced a date for its own developer conference, Google I/O 2021.
Given the current state of the pandemic and the ongoing vaccinations, the fact that the company will organize its event online has been welcomed by close circles. As is known, the 2020 event was cancelled last year with the emergence of the coronavirus.
Google I/O 2021 was announced in an interactive game
Google asked users to solve a series of 10 puzzles before announcing their event dates. At the end of the puzzle, he announced that the event will take place on 18-20 May.
Although the company has not yet announced much about what is planned for the event, in addition to the usual development talks and coding sessions that can participate for free, Google is expected to announce several hardware.
Based on previous leaks and rumors, Google can announce a refurbished and cheaper version of last year’s Pixel Buds, called pixel buds A, with a price tag of $100.
According to Jon Prosser, famous for his leaks, Google is also expected to launch a new mid-range phone, the Pixel 5a, in June. We also have the possibility to see a new Pixelbook 2 or possibly a refurbished Pixelbook Go, which is said to have been announced in Google’s hardware showcase last fall but never appeared.
