In case you hadn’t heard, Google is working on a new, cheaper version of its Chromecast with Google TV streaming device, and it’s due for release pretty soon. The hardware looks essentially unchanged.
TecnoBlog acquired photographs of Google’s cheaper Chromecast with Google TV.
In these photographs, we can see a design that seems almost identical to the existing Chromecast with Google TV: a puck-shaped device with a fixed HDMI cord. The design looks the same at a glance and up close.
The G454V model number on it is the identical one that appeared at the FCC in the summer.
This device’s distinction hidden. This device may have 2GB of RAM and Amlogic’s S805X2 chip, which supports AV1 but is less powerful than the 4K model. This cheaper Chromecast only supports 1080p, not 4K.
It features the same ovular puck shape with an HDMI connector. The only reason we know this is a prototype is because it’s covered with identifying stickers and one of them shows the model number G454V, which showed up previously at the FCC. Without the stickers, it would be hard to tell this Chromecast from the original.
Overall, the lack of design revisions is unremarkable. After all, you won’t be looking at this for most of your TV’s life. This lower-end model will have internal alterations, though. It won’t output 4K video, thus its features decreased. Amlogic S8805X2 (with AV1) and 2GB of RAM expected. Previously reported, it should ship with the same control as the basic Chromecast with Google TV.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be introduced on October 6.
