Google’s got a flourishing list of tool announcements we’re awaiting during a company’s October 4th media event, and this is one of a some-more sparkling ones: a Chromecast able of 4K playback. It’s reportedly called Chromecast Ultra, according to a prior news from Android Police — but in this new picture from VentureBeat, you’ll notice that a Chrome trademark is totally absent from a product’s design. Instead, right in a center is Google’s G, that fits in ideally with a “Made by Google” thesis of this large event.
At a rumored cost of $69, a Chromecast Ultra will cost utterly a bit some-more than a existent model, that is expected to sojourn accessible for sale alongside a new UHD model. 1080p works only excellent for a lot of people, after all, so Google doesn’t wish to remove out on a Chromecast’s appealing low price.
Aside from a trademark change, this looks flattering most accurately like a second-generation Chromecast. It’s a cosmetic round with an HDMI cord adhering out; that cord attaches to a behind of a Chromecast with magnets. In further to Chromecast Ultra, a Oct 4th eventuality will expected see a launch of dual Pixel smartphones, Google’s Home speaker, a new Google Wi-Fi router, this Chromecast, and… well, who knows what else during this point. It’ll be a busy, fun day for sure.
