We're expecting a lot of exciting new hardware today (much of which has already been leaked), including Google's new flagship smartphones, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Over the past 5 years, Google has consistently succeeded in showing the latest, greatest and best of its mobile operating system and software experiences in its own hardware; which is quite a remarkable feat, given both the open nature of the Android operating system and the power held by the multibillion-dollar hardware corporations that manufacture Android phones today. Last year's Google Pixel and Pixel XL were some of the best smartphones we've ever seen – with a great, super-fast software experience, stellar camera and unique VR experience. If the leaks of their successor, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, are anything to go by, we should definitely expect them to be some of the best Android smartphones available on the market just before Christmas time.

Smartphones aren't all we're expecting though. Google has been going all-in on consumer hardware in recent years and has intensified their efforts this year, to create a synergetic experience within their own hardware and software experience. This includes last year's Google WiFi and Google Home products, the home staple that is Google Chromecast and a number of new, exciting products that Google are planning to launch today. Aside from the standard affair new Pixel's and iterative refresh to the Google Home, we're expecting to see a new Google Home product, some new VR works and perhaps even a high-end Chromebook. Either way, we're excited to see what Google is bringing to the table this evening.
