Google has rolled out invitations for an event hosted by Android and Chrome OS chief Sundar Pichai, hinting at a new Android version and tablet release.
The firm confirmed to V3 that the event will happen on 24 July and will feature a keynote from Pichai, who was recently promoted to the role. Google declined V3's request for comment on what products will be unveiled at the show, but widespread rumours suggest it will be a new version of the company's Android operating system and a new flagship tablet.
There is currently no official information about the changes Google has planned for its newest Android version, though rumours have emerged claiming it will have a redesigned user interface and updated camera application.
The rumours correspond to Google's previous release cycle. The firm originally unveiled its latest Jelly Bean Android version, running on the Asus-built Google Nexus 7 in July 2012. The Nexus 7 was the first own-brand tablet released by Google. It proved a surprise hit, targeting the low-end tablet market and retailing at around £200.
Numerous analyst houses listed the Nexus 7 as the best-selling Android tablet ever. The tablet's success is commonly thought to be a key reason Apple chose to release a smaller, lower-end iPad Mini tablet.
Pichai became Google's Android and Chrome chief in March when former Android chief Andy Rubin stepped down from his role. Before this, Pichai led the firm's Chrome and Apps division.
The event will start at 5pm BST, check back with V3 then for full coverage.
