Google's presentation kicks off at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET, with CNET's preshow starting 30 minutes early. The industry are expecting to see Google reveal two new handsets that will directly repace Google's existing smartphone lineup: a smaller Pixel 2, and its larger sibling Pixel 2 XL.

Design-wise, Google Home Mini is expected to compete with the likes of Amazon's Echo Dot, which is a part of the company's existing line-up of Echo smart speakers. However, during an earnings call this past June, CFO Ruth Porat said that hardware - especially Google Home and WiFi - would be a major source of revenue in the future.

There are also rumors that the search mammoth will completely ditch the audio jack port in favor and to take advantage of the USB-C technology.

A leaked images also shows that the Pixel 2 will keep its thick bezels at the top and bottom of the device whilst the Pixel 2 XL appears to have an nearly edge-to-edge screen.
