Chromecast with Google TV (HD) almost official in Android TV Guide leak as European pricing surfaces
More light has been shed on the Chromecast with Google TV (HD), an unreleased device that leaked earlier this month. Initially, @_snoopytech_ shared press images, one of which we have embedded above. Subsequently, the leaker discovered an Android TV Guide listing for the device, which remains active at the time of writing. Not only does the listing confirm the device's familiar design, but also almost all its specifications.
As the screenshot below shows, the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) relies on an Amlogic S805X2 chipset that contains four ARM Cortex-A35 CPU cores capable of operating at 1.8 GHz. Also, the SoC features a Mali-G31 MP2 and is complemented by 1.5 GB of RAM, along with 8 GB of storage. Unsurprisingly, the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) runs Android TV 12 and comes with Widevine L1 certification for streaming content from the likes of Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Additionally, Google bundles a remote that supports Google Assistant with dedicated Netflix and YouTube shortcuts.
Moreover, the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is compatible with HDR10 and HDR10+ content. Unfortunately, a release date has not emerged yet, although we imagine that Google is planning to release the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) soon. Reportedly, Google has settled on €43 for the device's Eurozone price; presumably, the device will retail for roughly as much in the US, which would only be US$6 shy of its 4K sibling.
