Currently, we know almost everything about Google’s upcoming Chromecast brand Android TV dongle. The renderings and specifications of “Sabrina” as well as color options and prices have been leaked. Now, we even know what the upcoming Chromecast with Google TV will look like on the shelves of local retailers.
Today’s leak comes from Reddit, and it’s in the form of a hassle-recorded hands-on video showing all angles of retail packaging.
The video via u/jsterninja has been mirrored to gfycat.
Although the exact product names are inconsistent, the expected Chromecast brand image is still obvious. From the front, its trademark is “Chromecast with Google TV”, which is what was expected from previous leaks, but the bottom of the package simply calls it “Google Chromecast”, which is interesting. The bottom also clearly describes what you purchased: a new Chromecast, power cord and adapter, Google Chromecast voice remote control and 2 AAA batteries. I may know too much about the content, but in my opinion, the simplicity of branding means that this is not just another device to join the Chromecast lineup. of Google Chromecast, the future of the platform, but time will tell.
According to the specifications of the chipset, it is also expected to support 4K and HDR, which is clearly marked here.
According to the time of the leak and the fact that some retailers’ inventory systems have considered hardware, Chromecast with Google TV is likely to be available for sale soon, and it may even be released on Google’s launch night on the 30th. If it is expected to be officially announced .
Hands-on photos and unboxing
Redditor pasted the hands-on photos of the hardware in the box almost completely unpacking:

The information revealed is not new in itself, but these are the most detailed real photos of the upcoming Chromecast powered by Android TV that we have seen. In the next few years, those picking up the photos will spend a lot of time Use the remote control you see here.
The white described here may be the “snow” color previously leaked. Details like buttons, light and regulatory markings on the back of the dongle are clearly visible. The remote control is also very detailed, consistent with previous leaks, and shows its smoothly curved back and single buttons, including those for YouTube and Netflix. Again, there is no new content, but these are not renderers. They are the real thing.
The fly in the ointment is that this confirms that if you like Wi-Fi, the bundled power cord will not support Ethernet, so if you want to use this route, you may have to purchase an additional cable (assuming the device supports it). , Then you may need to confirm first).
Excited? Lucky Redditor may get help from Walmart, so if you can’t wait to wait a week for the official login, you may want to check the availability in your area.
