Google has just sent out invitations to members of the media inviting them to an event on July 24 in San Francisco to have breakfast with Sundar Pichai, its Senior Vice President for Android, Chrome, and Google Apps.

The invitation itself is unassuming and plain but it’s notable that the event is held at the same location where Google unveiled its Chromebook Pixel computer. And while it has not laid out the topic of conversation, having an event with Pichai could lead one to assume that it’s about the Android operating system, which he most recently took over following the departure of Andy Rubin.

At this year’s Google I/O developer conference, it was Pichai who took to the stage to announce that there were 900 million Android activations and 48 billion apps downloaded.

Whatever the announcement is, it will be big as the event is going to be livestreamed on Google’s YouTube channel.
