We might have just taken our best look yet at the long-rumored new Chromecast and custom remote control, thanks to what appears to be leaked marketing offers they posted. WinFuture. We already know that Google is planning to release devices, including a new Chromecast, on the September 30th event, so those shows could feature a product Google is very close to revealing.
The look of your new Chromecast shouldn’t come as a surprise if you’ve been following other leaks; It appears to be a plastic oval HDMI dongle a bit larger than the circular Chromecast devices we’re used to. But what is more interesting than these displays is the remote control. We’ve already seen leaks of that, and while these new shows aren’t radically different, they do reveal a revised button format, including dedicated buttons for Netflix and YouTube.
It is said that the new Chromecast will work on Android TV, although this OS has been rebranded to Google TV along with the release of the new device. (You might remember that Google once created a TV platform called Google TV, which it ditched in favor of Android TV. I think the old is new again.)
The new Chromecast is also rumored to cost $ 49.99 and come in at least three colors, according to 9to5Google – “Summer Melon” (pink), “Rock Candy” (gray – maybe the color shown in WinFuture’s Leaked photos) and Blue Summer.
Google has openly said that it will launch a new smart speaker at its September 30th event. We already have a pretty good idea what it will look like – Google shared an official photo and video of the device back in July, and WinFuture We shared today what appears to have been leaks of marketing presentations for the speaker in “Charcoal” (black) and “Chalk” (white). Google also says it will showcase the new Pixel on September 30, which will likely include the already unveiled Pixel 5 flagship that the company described early last month when it launched the affordable Pixel 4A.
Update September 18, 1:18 PM ET: Added details about upcoming Google smart speakers.
