At this point in time, Google loyalists would have already marked 4 October on their calendars as this date signifies the debut of the first-ever Google-branded high-end smartphones not bearing the Nexus moniker. Now, the latest reports have stated that Google could showcase more than one offering during this event.

The speculated offering is the Google Andromeda, which is an amalgamation of Google's Android and Chrome OSes. An Android Police report, which quoted an official tweet by Hiroshi Lockheimer (Senior VP) of Android, Google Chrome and Google Play, has hinted at the possibility of the project Google Andromeda (speculated internal codename for the Android-Chrome hybrid OS) being officially showcased on 4 October.

Presently, what is known is that Google Andromeda would be released in 2017, but with the above reports emerging just before 4 October, it seems that an official showcase of the hybrid operating platform cannot be ruled out. As of now, Google is confirmed to unveil the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones during the event.

At this juncture, as per unofficial sources, both the Google-branded Pixel and Pixel XL would be designed to incorporate quad-core Qualcomm SoCs apart from 12 MP primary cameras, 4GB RAM and the Android 7.0 Nougat operating platform.
