During the last month some reports surfaced implying that Google has working in a Pixel Stand that would be released alongside Pixel 3 series. This smart charging dock will reportedly come with Google Assistant support, and some evidence has found by the App developer Kieron Quinn.
The developer has found a pair of pictures showing Google’s Assistant UI when the Pixel smartphone is docked in the Pixel Stand. According to this leak, the Pixel Stand will be able to answer and do a number of tasks even if the Pixel smartphone is locked.
Until the moment no leaked picture containing the Pixel Stand has leaked. So we still need to wait a bit longer to see if the acessory will appear before the time. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait until October 9th to know the Pixel Stand in all its glory. Also, we still need to found if the Pixel Stand will support all the Pixel handsets or just the new units.
While on topic of October 9th announcements, Google has confirmed to Tom’s Guide today, that there’s no Pixel Watch to come alongside the Pixels. Miles Barr, the Google’s director of engineering for Wear OS made the following statement:
“To think of a one-size-fits-all watch, I don’t think we’re there yet. Our focus is on our partners for now.”
This basically buries all the speculations that has lifted in the past months about the Pixel Watch. Of course, possible enthusiasts will be waiting until the next year to see if their dreams will be fullfiled by Google.
