Google's Third-Gen Chromecast Leaks Again In Updated Smart TV Kit

Google's Third-Gen Chromecast Leaks Again In Updated Smart TV Kit

Anything is possible from Google's wacky hardware labs.

Google will hold its Pixel 3 event on October 9 at 11am ET which 8:30pm IST. Now we know what that does. So here's a quick breakdown.

Google will be livestreaming the event on their Made by Google Youtube page. The company's Pixel branded premium flagships have been a huge success from the beginning, and the third iteration to the line is expected to carry the same trend.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are scheduled to get announced tomorrow.

And while the smaller Pixel 3 is expected to have a standard top bezel, the Pixel 3 XL is getting a notch. Pixel 3 has been priced for £706 which generally amounts Rs 68,000, while Pixel 3 XL accompanies a sticker price of £766, which means Rs 74,000.

The older Pixel 2 and 2XL are both excellent devices and feature one of the purest Android experiences on the market. This device might come with a display along with a speaker. The new leak on the Pixel Slate has no information on its pricing. That's courtesy of the Google Pixel Slate, a new, Chrome OS powered tablet that would be the company's first.

Further, Engadget showcasing the retail box suggest that the phone bundle a few accessories that include a USB-C dongle, a pair of USB-C earphones, USB-C to USB-C cable, a USB-C to USB-A dongle and an 18W USB-C two-pin power adapter. The Slate has a slightly higher resolution, but can't match the 120Hz refresh rate of the iPad Pro. Photos of the device are shown below. Also, we might see a new version of the their Chromecast digital media player and even a Chrome OS tablet.

Also, don't forget to check in with us about the event because we will be covering the whole event and will update our readers.

And then, there are the little things.

Google is gearing up for it most awaited event of the year which is going to take place on October 9. When the device is docked a new user interface will appear with quick actions for playing music, making phone calls, and using the Google Assistant. Prematurely-published promo material hints that Google's focus with the Home Hub will be smart home control. Priced at $149, the device is expected to compete with the likes of the Amazon Echo Show.

As you can see below, the device is a tablet.

The next-generation Chromecast isn't much of a upgrade except for Bluetooth support and better support for 5GHz Wi-Fi, but it could be bundled with the Home Mini smart speaker as a "Smart TV Kit", according to some sources. Previous leaks have revealed that the Pixel Slate will support dual boot with Chrome OS and Windows 10.
