according to this Artem Rusakowski From Android Police, the device has popped up in the product database on Target, and is listed under the name “Google Chromecast with Google TV” – which fits the Android TV rebranding we heard back in May.
The pricing of the device is listed at $ 49.99 (about £ 39 / AU $ 69). This is slightly lower than previous rumors, but significantly higher than the $ 29.99 standard Chromecast that Google currently sells.
The colors for the device have also been listed: It seems that the new Android / Google TV dongle is set to appear in pink summer malone, a gray rock candy, and a blue summer blue.
What we know so far
If Android TV actually becomes Google TV, it will be across the board, not just on this device. You may remember that Android TV was originally called Google TV, so there is a certain symmetry.
In the leaks we have seen so far, the dongle will plug into the back of your television set and you will need all audio and video content from all regular apps. It will apparently also come with its own remote.
Despite developing Android TV, Google does not actually build its own hardware running the operating system – instead you can find it on devices such as Nvidia Shield TV and have it built into various television sets.
Already being seen in regulatory lists, it shouldn’t be long before the Google TV device is officially announced. In fact it may appear at the same time as the new Nest speaker if Google is planning a major hardware refresh.
