According to “one person with direct knowledge of the matter”, Google will launch a new Nest home security camera. Informed people revealed to the Nikkei Asia Review that Google plans to launch new products this year, including smart speakers, wearables, and cameras. As we know, Apple's high-priced iPhone sales are disappointing as consumers turn to lower-priced models. The Google Pixel family has grown in terms of market share over the past year by approximately 0.13-percent, the source says, citing IDC.

"The new phone will be the spearhead of Google's drive to expand the hardware using its operating systems", reads the report.

Google is working on a glut of new hardware for its Made By Google line-up, according to a new report from Japanese newspaper Nikkei. The question centered on which you, our readers, would rather buy: a flagship version of the Google Pixel 3, or one of the alleged Google Pixel 3 Lite devices we expect to see this year?

Pixel 3 comes in two models; the standard Pixel 3 that has a 5.5-inch P-OLED display and the larger Pixel 3 XL that has a 6.3-inch P-OLED panel.

It's unclear exactly what hardware upgrades would be featured in the new Pixel-branded security cameras. Finally, Google will be announcing premium Pixel phones toward the end of the year as expected. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice. The report mentions statistics from the IDS that show Google sold some 3.45 million Pixel units in 2017 and 4.68 million Pixel units previous year. Although Google has been introducing new Home-branded products over the years, the company is going to be updating the regular Google Home speaker later this year after a long time.

Smartphones aren't the only Google hardware on the horizon. It's also been a while since the original Google Home was released, and Nikkei pegs it as getting an improved refresh - though I'd still love to see a water-resistant unit for the bathroom. While we've figured Google had some first-party smartwatch in the works since a job listing went up last week, Nikkei's report seems to indicate there's more than one on the way, or at least being worked on.
