Google is expected to further detail Android N including the release schedule for the next Android operating system. Android N is expected to get special virtual reality enhancements. The rumored Android VR is a platform and a hardware headset as believed earlier. Google is working on a VR headset that does not require a smartphone as display, but it is not clear if it is ready for show time.
The Android Wear for smartwatches is also due for an update. A hot new device will be the Google Home. The voice activated assistant is expected to take on Amazon Echo in Fall.
Other interesting announcements are expected around Google's Project Tango. Building mapping is a hot new topic with huge growth potential and Google is already full in with its mapping tablet.
There could also be new announcements around the Chrome OS and Chrome devices. Sundar Pichai has two hours to introduce new stuff. That is plenty of time to fit in lots of news.
Xiaomi will present a new device at the Google I/O. It is likely the Mi Box.
