The Pixel phones may not be the most interesting thing Google unveils next month

September 26th, 2016 at 10:40 AM
Google Pixel Launch Andromeda

Google started teasing its October 4th mobile event a few days ago, and if you’re familiar with recent rumors you probably know two things about it: the Nexus phone is dying, and the Pixel phone will replace it.

Google will have other hardware on display during the event, but the company is also expected to unveil a massive milestone for Android. Andromeda, as a new operating system is internally called, might be the most important thing coming out of Google’s October 4th event.

“We announced the 1st version of Android 8 years ago today. I have a feeling 8 years from now we’ll be talking about Oct 4, 2016,” Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer said cryptically on Twitter during the weekend.

That’s the kind of message the often-accurate Android Police can interpret differently than most of us. The Android site has been sitting on information that something big is coming at Google’s event on October 4th. The announcement is greater than Pixel phones and bigger than Chromecast Ultra, Google Home, and Google WiFi, the site says.

It’s probably Andromeda, Android Police thinks, the Android version that incorporates Chrome OS. Google has been rumored to merge the two platforms for a while now, and it may all happen next year.

An Android operating system that has Chrome OS abilities would put Google in a position where it could propose buyers decent PC computing alternatives to Mac and Windows. Not to mention that Andromeda might be compatible with all Pixel-branded gadgets.

Lockheimer’s tweet is certainly interesting even if Android Police’s explanation isn’t true. If Google is going to tease anything Android-related on October 4th, it’s definitely something that will affect the entire future of Android. Color us intrigued, Google!
