TAIPEI – Google intends to disclose its first lower-priced smartphone this year as part of an aggressive hardware push that expects more users to be inserted into its ecosystem, sources have been published.
The US internet giant is moving fast to take advantage of the troubles presenting Apple at present, which has disappointed sales on its new iPhone premium when consumers move to models cheaper and with global mobile phone sales, publishes industrial sources.
The new new Google gloss is customer-oriented at a sensitive price and those in emerging markets. It is expected to be a lower price than Apple's iPhone and Apple, the XR, which starts at $ 749.

Google is the new phone that will drive Google's drive to expand the hardware using its operating systems. Among the new products planned this year include smart speakers, wearables and webcams, sources of knowledge of the company's plans on the Nikkei Asian Review. Google plans to launch a new premium phone in its Pixel range as usual.
To enhance its hardware ambitions, the internet giant is drawing up Apple's talent and extending its production partnerships across Asia. Over the last two years, Google has hired hundreds of hardware engineers and supply chain specialists from Apple, who told people about the subject. He also acquired 2,000 engineers from the Taiwanese HTC mobile phone maker in 2017.
Google has only a little bit in the global mobile phone market. There were about 4.68 million pixel pickup units in 2018, or about 0.33% of the total market, IDC data produced by the research company. This compared to 3.45 million units, or 0.2% of the market in 2017.
The expansion of Google's hardware will allow the US high tech giant to drive more users to its services, analysts said.
"Google … it looks more straightforward to collect user data and to make many of the everyday lives of its software and key service services," said Joey Yen, an analyst at IDC. "The creation of Google hardware will be difficult for people to survive without Google services and ecosystems … that is the great picture that has always been the huge internet access."
One person who knows exactly Nikkei's content that Google has been releasing a new security camera later this year after integrating the team from Nest Labs, has been the high tech startup in 2014. Nest Labs is building home-use security cameras since 2015.

The range of speakers of smart speakers includes the standard Home option, the Affordable Home Mini, and released the Home Hub last October in response to Echo Show Amazon. High-end Google Home Max is located against Apple HomePod.

Meanwhile, suppliers are expecting the ambitions of Google's hardware to compromise their difficulties as a result of Apple's drugs. The world's best electronics contract manufacturers are hard hitters, including the main Foxconn and Pegatron iPhone composers and MacBook Quanta Computer makers, as Apple is tackling slowdown in China and the first decline in iPhone shipment .
Foxconn FIH Mobile Unit, which produces Increasing Android phones including the Pixel, production lines dedicated to Google products, said one source. The FIH Mobile team that Google business handles also gets more bonuses than teams that serve other clients in the Android camp, such as Xiaomi, because of the healthier growth attitude of the US company, the source said.
Pegatron was at the same time as sponsored orders to build Google's Hub Hub last year and has long-term production links with Nest Labs. Quanta helps Google to manufacture the majority of Smart speaker products and serves as the main producer of the data center server. Compal Electronics, an iPad maker, is in talks with Google to start smart speakers.
Google is also happy to produce Apple outside China to avoid the trade conflict between Washington and Beijing, Nikkei's sources.  Recently Pegatron agrees to build a facility in the north of Vietnam to produce 20,000 local workers primarily for the production of Google products, according to people who are familiar with the content.
Quanta is expanding its plant in the Taiyuan Taiwuan northern city for a wide
