Google considers launching a mid-range Pixel phone this summer

Google celebrates many special occasions with a doodle such as Valentine’s Day

Over the past year, Google has launched the Assistant in Hindi in Allo, brought the English Assistant to more phones, and made a special version available for Reliance Jio feature phones. They will come out later this month and with it, a big-budget advertising campaign.

Trade meets were recently held in multiple locations such as Malaysia, the U.K and the U.S.in March.

Brands who feel like they've already saturated the North American and European markets are looking at expanding to developing countries to strengthen their product line.

According to CBS News, which cited a New York Times report, "Each company has filed patent applications that "outline an array of possibilities" for how its devices could monitor more of what users say and do". Emerging markets are much more price sensitive when it comes to smartphones, so entry-level and mid-range smartphones rule the roost with cash-strapped consumers. Some of the India retailers had also participated in these meetings. Google is also bringing its smart home products to the country, including Home and Nest devices, as well as the pricey Pixelbook laptop. Google is teasing the launch with #MakeGoogleDoIt, but there's no update on when the products are going to be introduced. Reddington, India, a Google Distribution partner revealed that the search giant is ready to launch the speakers by end of April 2018. The speakers are compatible with over 95 percent of Android phones worldwide. These speakers can be controlled through voice commands. Although, do keep in mind that these are fairly well-priced smart speakers.

The latest updated Alexa understands English in the Indian accent, but it still does not understand or speak Hindi. Since then, Google has also launched the affordable Home Mini as well as the high-end Home Max in markets such as the US. We will have to wait and see how Google prices these Home speakers. In the United States, the Google Home Mini ships for $49 (around Rs. 3,200) and the Google Home ships for $129 (around Rs. 8,500).
