Google is back this year to launch its 2017 flagships, the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The company is expected to unveil more hardware devices such as Google Home Mini, a ChromeOS-powered Pixelbook and an updated version Daydream View VR headset, in addition to Pixel devices.

Sundar Pichai will take to the stage and is expected to announce a couple of updates and some new products. The event will likely see Google CEO Sundar Pichai addressing the audience with a keynote speech, along with the product launches.

Most of the products likely to launch have already been leaked out on the internet and there is not much new to expect except detailed specifications and availability details of the products. It is unlikely that the company will launch any surprise product at the event despite the rumours about Pixel Ultra. Unlike last year, Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, instead of Snapdragon 836 like Snapdragon 821.
