The Google Pixel Event begins at 9.30pm IST (9am PT) on Tuesday, and this is Gadgets 360’s live blog of the event. Google is expected to launch two Android smartphones – Pixel and Pixel XL – at the event. This could mark the death of the Nexus brand name and an acknowledgement that the series had a lot of room for improvement.

The Google October 4 event is also expected to see the unveiling of the Andromeda platform, which could replace Chrome OS. This could be an acknowledgement that Chrome OS has failed and could be Google’s way of trying to break into the market for tablets and laptops.

The Google event is also expected to unveil more details about Google Home, Google Wi-Fi, Chromecast 4K, and the Daydream VR headset. The biggest takeaway here is that Google could be using it’s own ‘G’ logo on all the hardware it launches at the October 4 event.
