With a little over a week to go until Google’s October 4th event, where several new pieces of hardware including the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, are expected to be revealed, software is getting a bit of a bump as well. The frenzy started when word surfaced that a new project called Andromeda may be announced, representing the effective merger of Android and ChromeOS into a new operating system. Now sources are trying to connect dots and think the new Andromeda could land on a rumored “Nexus” tablet believed to be incoming from Huawei.

Finally a reboot that people may like

It seems like such a small thing, but adding a reboot button to the power menu on an Android device can be a big deal. Manufacturers like Samsung and LG that put their own user interfaces on Android devices include this option, but for some reason Google has held out on supplying this option in stock Android. That may be changing with the release of the new Google Pixel smartphones according to sources who captured a screenshot showing the option present.

Now is the time for you to get your best look yet at Google’s upcoming phones. The Pixel and Pixel XL, which will take over for the Nexus line, are going to be launched very soon. It’s no surprise that Pixel-related leaks are becoming bigger and more frequent with October 4 being the rumored launch date for Google’s next round of devices.

Today, Google is having to deal with very clear photographs of the Pixel and Pixel XL being posted online before the phones are official. Now it’s obvious the company will be implementing metal and glass for the bodies to give a premium look and feel.

Hit the break to see what’s coming.
