Google will also reportedly launch brick and mortar stores in 2018 - a ideal place to show a new mid-range phone to new customers. Among the most important products from the company will be the smart speakers namely Google Home, Google Home Mini that will compete with Amazon Echo speakers.
These devices closely integrate with Nest products ever since Google parent Alphabet made a decision to bring that subsidiary back into the Google fold, where it is now overseen by Google's hardware chief Rick Osterloh.
Apple and Samsung have been heavily targeting India, and Google is reportedly planning to combat those efforts by spending big money on marketing in the country. This launch comes a few months after Amazon launched its Echo smart speakers - Echo, Echo Plus and Echo Dot with Alexa in India.

Google finally ready to dive into the Indian market with a formal strategy in place to face the competition. The Home speaker is coming to India almost two years after its original launch.
A new month and as we've come to expect from Google over the years, a new software update is out for the Pixel duo of 2017. In the United States, the Google Home costs 130 Dollars which is equivalent to Rs. 8,400 and the Google Home Mini costs around 50 USD which is around Rs. 3,400.
Both the Google Home and the Home Mini will be paired with a number of Google's content services, including the weather updates, news updates, and music playlists from Google Play Music, tuned for India users. The Home Mini, which is donut-size speaker, sells for $49, which means in India it may cost around Rs 3,500. We've already seen that to some extent with the Pixel 2, which had better retail presence from the first-generation model. Google Home Mini is available in three colour options of chalk, charcoal and coral. Amazon's speakers start at Rs 4,499 for the Echo, Rs 9,999 for Echo and Rs 14,999 for the Echo Plus variant. Google has likewise increased their advertising spend to promote the Pixel, and other hardware launches in other countries.
