Insider # 7.01: Google Gadgets; two Plus from Nokia and Samsung; HMD Global Smartphone Announcement

One of the most attentive insiders, Till Kottmann, found information on the global network that mentions two Google devices previously unknown to the general public. There are even their codenames - Medaka and Salmon ("orizia" and "salmon").

This data was found in documents related to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). It has long been known that Google has a habit of giving its new products “fishy” names. Therefore, most of the persons interested in this information have concluded that this company has developed two new devices.

Previously, there was information about other products, with the codenames Bonito and Sargo. They do not coincide with the above, so the conclusion about the novelty of the developments easily suggests itself.

One of these gadgets is almost certainly the Pixel Watch, a smartwatch. This is evidenced by the fact that the reports mention the developers who are on the list of the team taking part in the Wear OS project. Nothing is known about the second product yet.


At the beginning of May this year, a Google I / O conference will be held, where they will most likely tell about these new products.

The battery and mobile network status indicators are shifted to the left of the selfie camera. Previously, all this was presented as one of the assumptions, but now everything has been confirmed.

You can also consider the edges of the smartphone. On the right is a regulator, most likely responsible for working with the Bixby voice assistant. On the opposite side you can see the volume control key and the power button.
