George Hwang, the Product Manager at Google said: “It took some clever engineering work redesigning components like our speakers, our battery and haptics,”

The tech giant Google also introduced a new tablet, Google Pixel Tablet, which is intended to be used around the house to control smart home devices. The device is priced at $499 and will be available in three different colours: porcelain, hazel, and rose. It is said to be made available in the market by 20 June. The tablet is meant to be kept at home and rests on a magnetic dock that simultaneously acts as a charger and speaker.
