Google’s Big October Pixel 3 event can not be for another week, but the third generation chromcast is already looking forward to seeing that already in the wild it has been shown. The new version of Google’s Streaming TV adapter is not intended to make its official appearance by October 9, but it seems that more than one retailer has pulled the trigger quickly.
For all purposes, Google’s event is shaping up to be a big one. It has certainly been seen more than its proper part of the leak, probably the search is huge and there is a lot of potential in the grip of its PR team. First of all, we saw Pixel 3XL, which was completed with its controversial notched display. Then, Leek unveiled Google Home Hub.
In the background, however, a new chromcast has been whispered. This is the first time stuck in the wireless test results, the FCC filing is indicating the upgraded internal components. It includes better 5GHz WiFi support as well as using Bluetooth.
Unfortunately for Google’s big plans, Best Buy has somewhat spoiled the surprise. Many reddit members like GroveStreetHomie shared images of a new chromecast purchased from retailer this weekend, which came out as a separate design for the current model. While the basics are the same, it is clear that this is a new hardware.
As before, it is a spherical body with a small, tethered HDMI cable that plugs into your TV. However, the glossy plastic and embossed chrome logo has been changed, in which the third General Chromecast now has a ‘G’ Google logo familiar with matte finish and company’s pixel smartphone.
However, everything has not changed. For example, the ports are similar to Micro USB for power instead of USB-C. With Google sticking to WiFi for network connectivity, there is still no Ethernet.
Later, Redditor, Big GigaBit shared photos from his local Best Buy, where 3G General Chromecast Boxing had already been found on the shelves. Valuable at $ 35, the box will come in the form of disappointment for the expectation of 4K Ultra HD for anyone who does bill 1080p HD support. You still get normal streaming of content from services such as NetFix, Hulu, and YouTube, as well as casting from your smartphone.
Although the absence of high resolution options is likely to disappoint some upgraders, Google giving a relief to keep the price of updated chromecast same as previous. The streaming adapter has always been one of the more affordable ways to connect your TV, after all. Will Google save anything to surprise us on October 9, however, we have to wait to find out.
