In addition to the already known, upcoming, cheaper Pixel "Lite," Nikkei is reporting that Google plans to release its own wearables (plural), a Google Home refresh, and security cameras this year. It is expected to be priced lower than Apple's cheapest iPhone.

Moreover, it was noted such growth took place while the smartphone market as a whole decreased by 23 percent year-over-year in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Google's 2019 hardware lineup will include a new premium Pixel 4 smartphone, new entry-level Pixel smartphone, as well as new Google Home and Nest devices, and a new smartwatch, according to Japan's Nikkei.

Past year we heard rumours of a Pixel Watch to be released alongside the Pixel 3 phones but that did not eventuate apparently due to delays.

The Pixel 3 Lite will boast numerous same features already offered on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, albeit with a slightly more affordable price tag. The final tally shows that the Google Pixel 3 XL is the clear victor, with 34 percent of responders selecting it as their choice.

In the movie, Pinkman, who's wrongfully kidnapped by perpetrators, manages to escape and sets out to live a free life. This is the second spin off of the hit show following the success of Better Call Saul , which now has four seasons.

Pixel 3 Lite purportedly has the same 5.5-inch screen size as the Pixel 3, but will carry a lower resolution 2,220 x 1,080 IPS panel compared to the FHD+ OLED on the latter.

Finally, the firm will be launching a new security camera, a new product line for the firm.

Google Pixel 3 was announced back in October and presented Android fans with a number of notable improvements from its predecessor.

Google Home will also see an update according to the report. This is part of its efforts to enter the hardware market, hoping to attract more users into its ecosystem. Pricing information isn't yet concrete but the expectation is that Google will undercut Apple's iPhone XR by a significant margin. It is unclear whether this means an entirely new speaker or just updated specs to the old one but we expect Google to bring an entirely new speaker with the same design cues as the original.

In order to realize its "hardware dream", Google is still digging the corner of Apple employees to expand cooperation with Asian suppliers.
