The constant stream of leaks about the new “Chromecast with Google TV (HD)” continues today with US pricing rumors and a series of marketing images.
According to SnoopyTech on Twitter this afternoonChromecast with Google TV (HD) costs $40 in the US. The exact price is supposed to be $39.99, which is more expensive than it is supposed to. Today a trusted source also says that the latest Google hardware is “already available at a lot of retailers.”
In the US, the 4K model costs $49.99, while the third-generation Chromecast is $29.99. The latter is what we expected the new Chromecast HD to cost this European price of 39 euros from the previous leak.
As such, this new model is only $10 less than the current Google TV streaming dongle, which often sees discounts. The price differential isn’t really that great, and the higher resolution is a worthy upgrade for most people.
while, WinFuture Share a series of Chromecast marketing images with Google TV (HD). The bundle will include the same voice remote control with AAA batteries, a USB-C to USB-A cable, and power bricks. It appears to be only available in one color (ice), which is not surprising as a cost-cutting measure.
We also get pictures of it connected to a TV, which is supposed to be our first glimpse of Android 12. The most interesting picture shows the Chromecast connected to a smaller wall-mounted screen in the kitchen and used to show live footage from the Nest doorbell. This is one use case that does not require 4K resolution. Other pictures show that it is connected to fairly large TVs that are supposed to be more than 1080p in resolution and are not well rendered by this streaming dongle.
