The Verge also reported on Google leaking the Nest Hub Max smart home device, which is expected to be announced alongside the new smartphones at the company's I/O conference on May 7. These phones will be launched in an event today on May 7, 2019. The conference will be held in Mountain View, California.

In the meantime, current Google Pixel 3 users can download the May update file relevant to their device from Google's developer site.
Android Automotive OS was recently demoed running on Volvo Polestar 2, which will be the first vehicle to officially launch with the OS in tow. Other than these, there are expected to be details on changes/upgrades coming to Google Assistant, Google Maps, Android TV, smarthome devices and more. Just last week, in fact, Google introduced a new navigational feature called Tiles that brings swappable screens for getting headlines, timers, and weather information at a glance, and this could portend a new hardware partner to show off the feature.
