Moreover, the event might also see the announcement of new standalone Photos app.
In accordance with the report, Brillo will be launched under the label of Android, but it will support the low-end devices that come with 32MB/64MB of RAM. To sum it, we can say that Brillo is a downsized version of Android OS and it is mostly positioned towards powering the Internet of Things IoT.
Google is taking a keen interest in the IoT market as it holds a lot more development in the future. The new OS will be powering home appliances such as mixers, washing machines, fridges, etc and through Brillo these devices will be able to work automatically and also communicate smartly.
To add more, Brillo will enable manufacturers to build better smart devices.
