Google’s cheaper Chromecast with Google TV appears in photos, and it looks familiar

Enrique, 10 September 2022

Google is getting ready to launch a new Chromecast. A set of photos obtained by TecnoBlog shows images of a new, cheaper Chromecast that looks exactly like the Chromecast with Google TV. That one currently retails for $50 – but is currently discounted by $10 at major US retailers as of this post.

Though it’s visually identical to the Chromecast with Google TV that launched back in 2020, it carries a different model number: G454V. This model has gone through FCC certification already and its rumored to be different internally. This unreleased Chromecast will run an Amlogic S805X2 chip with AV1 support and 2GB of RAM. While it is less powerful than the 4K model, it’s expected to support up to 1080p output resolution.

This cheaper Chromecast is expected to also come with a voice remote, as per WinFuture. This new lower-cost Chromecast could arrive during Google’s October 6 event where it will full launch the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch and rumor has it there will be some more Nest Home devices come as well.

It is expected that this low-cost Chromecast will be sold at the same $30 price point and may be deemed the new entry-level Chromecast.
