Google announced its latest hardware today with three major updates to its Pixel, Nest Audio, and Chromecast product lines. Their biggest announcement today was their latest Pixel smartphones, which now come with 5G connectivity in two new models. The Pixel 4A ($499) is their entry-level 5G model with a 5.8" OLED display, a Snapdragon 765G processor, a 12MP dual-pixel and 16MP ultrawide camera, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 3885mAh battery. Their new flagship Pixel 5 ($699) features a 6" OLED display, many of the same specs as the 4a, and 8GB of RAM.


The company also announced a new Nest Audio ($99) speaker that is 75% louder than the Google Home and also packs 50% stronger bass. The speaker features a 19mm tweeter to cover high frequencies and vocals while a 75mm mid-woofer produces deeper bass. Their new Chromecast ($49) brings their latest Google TV experience and streams 4K HDR video at up to 60 fps. It also comes with a Chromecast voice remote with a dedicated Google Assistant button that lets you do everything from pulling up your favorite streaming app to checking the weather.
