A smaller Google Home in the works?                  Tyler Lizenby  CNET

At the moment, details of the specs and features of both the Chromebook Pixel and Google Home mini are still unknown.

Reports in late 2016 suggested that Google was prepping a new laptop codenamed "Bison" that would run a hybrid of Android and Chrome OS called Andromeda.

It's possible that the new Chromebook Pixel was developed from the Bison hardware project, but that remains far from certain. The mini Google Home could be launched at the company's hardware event in the fall, where Google may also release two new Google Pixel devices and a Pixel-branded Chromebook. Reportedly, there would also be a smaller version of the Home smart speaker. 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. For instance, the website is unsure how much the new speaker will cost, nor is it sure how Google will differentiate the new speaker from the current Home model. Amazon is now the leader in this field with its Echo line powered by its Alexa voice assistant.

As a result of the attack, two people were hospitalized in serious condition, and five more sustained moderately serious injuries. Photos shared on social media and in the local news media after the stabbings showed a body on the ground under a white sheet.

On the Pixel smartphone front, rumours and leaks indicate there will two Pixel phones like the previous year. The last rumor about a beefy Google laptop from past year were about a device with a 12.3-inch screen, up to 128GB of internal storage, up to 16GB of RAM, and an optional Wacom stylus. The blog speculates that Google's 2017 Chromebook Pixel could be anything from another own-brand budget laptop running the limited Chrome OS, to a serious new Surface Pro rival based on Google's secretive "Project Bison" Andromeda operating system.

At a media event later this autumn, Google is expected to reveal a smaller, cheaper version of its smart speaker, the Google Home.
