Google’s upcoming Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are some of the worst kept hardware secrets in the company’s history, and to add insult to injury today, they also spilled the beans again on the Nest Hub Max Smart Display.

9to5Google spotted a couple of changes to Google’s own online Store today that explicitly called out both the Nest Hub Max and the Pixel 3a (and its accessory case) in a new menu structure on the page. Google has unsurprisingly pulled the new format since, but not before it was widely noticed:

From previous leaks, it’s looking like the Nest Hub Max will be a 10-inch FHD Assistant powered Smart Display with an included indoor Nest Cam and stereo speakers. Interestingly the listing also mentions the Google Home Hub/ Nest Home Hub. Are they rebranding or co-branding the original 7-inch Google Home Hub too?

The Pixel 3a is expected to be a 5.6-inch AMOLED device running Android 9.0 of course and powered by a Snapdragon 670 and 4GB of RAM. In keeping with the more premium Pixel 3 line, there will also be a fabric case for the 3a range.

With all of these leaks coalescing, we’re thinking that the release of these products must be very close indeed. Are you excited for a mid-range Pixel or a higher end Google-branded Smart Speaker? Let us know below.
