Thanks to a torrid set of leaks, we know that Google is set to announce its Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, the Google Home virtual assistant appliance, the 4K/HDR-capable Chromecast Ultra, and a mesh-based Google Wi-Fi networking solution. But that doesn’t mean Google doesn’t have a major surprise it could share with us on Tuesday.
How you feel about the leaks depends heavily on how you view surprises, I guess. New parents, faced with learning the sex of a baby, have to choose whether to be surprised by ultrasound during pregnancy or at birth. And it’s fair to say that opinions are strong in either direction despite the fact that a surprise is a surprise. It doesn’t matter, in some ways, when it happens. Except, of course, that it does.
