As revealed by Droid-Life today, Google is hard at work on a Google Home Mini which, as the name suggests, reduces the hardware size and even adds a splash of a new color to the mix.

We've previously heard both from sources and a regulatory filing that the Pixel 2 will have squeezable sides like the HTC U11, and now more evidence of the feature has turned up in the latest Google app beta.

The Pixel 2 will arrive in Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White.

There will also be a higher priced option as well, which will cost $750 for the 128GB of storage, just like previous year, so there's no change in this particular area. Google is holding its Pixel 2 event October 4th.

Lastly, You'll be able to change the voice for Google Assistant. Competitors, like Samsung's Note 8, the LG V30 and the iPhone 8 Plus use dual cameras, so we're curious to see how Google will use software to keep up. This year, Google it seems is listening to a customer pain point and giving consumers more storage this time around for the same $650 starting cost. Just like the original Home, the new Home Mini will be available in multiple different colors: Chalk, Charcoal, and Coral. Outside of a few top-mounted LEDs, there doesn't appear to be any discernible buttons.

Google will also unleash a revamped 2017 edition of its Daydream View VR headset.

Given its smaller form factor, the Home Mini won't feature a replaceable base like the larger Google Home. The hand-friendly controller is also making a return and will most likely reside in an interior compartment found along the front flap.
