Search engine giant Google announced earlier that it is holding a major hardware event on September 30. This month is truly a hardware season with Apple's big Watch event and Sony's PlayStation Showcase event. Google also teased that a new smart speaker and Chromecast might be announced.
Google sent invitations to the press earlier that officially confirms an online launch event happening on September 30. The search engine giant would reportedly launch its next lineup of products, including the Google Pixel 5.
The Google Launch Night In event will start at 11 AM, but it will not be live-streamed to the public, says its FAQ page. The search engine giant, however, is promoting the launching event on its various social media channels. Apart from the Google Pixel 5, the company will definitely launch the Pixel 4a 5G.
In addition to a couple of new smartphones, the company also teases in its email a new smart speaker. This could be the Nest speaker that Google teased in an image and a brief video in the early part of 2020. A new Chromecast is also anticipated to debut at the event.

The device is an Android TV-powered Sabrina dongle that has been leaked multiple times. According to rumors, the device might be called Chromecast with Google TV. Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 5 was announced alongside the Pixel 4a 5G at the launch of the Pixel 4a. The teaser claimed that the Pixel 5 will feature 5G support. It would be released in various regions. This includes the UK, Canada, U.S., Ireland, France, Germany, Australia, Japan and Taiwan. While many anticipate that the Pixel 5 might house the latest Qualcomm SD chipset, earlier leaks claimed that it would house the Snapdragon 765G due to the chipset's affordability.

The Pixel 5 will not feature the Soli radar functionality that consumers see at the Pixel 4. In terms of design, the Pixel 5 would reportedly share some resemblances with the Pixel 4a's design. It might also feature an 8 GB of RAM, a new ultra-wide camera at the back and a 90 HZ display refresh rate.
Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 4a 5G would be reportedly the bigger version of the earlier released Pixel 4a. It would reportedly house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip that would allow it to support 5G connectivity. These specs are not yet official and are unconfirmed. In this case, take this with a pinch of salt.
