Google’s recently leaked budget ‘Chromecast HD’ streaming stick reportedly runs on Android 12 with Google TV. Leaks have suggested that the device will come with a remote, and that it will feature Amlogic’s S805X2 CPU with AV1 decoding and 1.5GB RAM.
It uses the NXP 88W8987 chipset for dual-band Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and is slated to cost €39.99 in Europe. The leak suggested that the device will reportedly cost $30 in the U.S., which would translate to roughly $40 CAD.
Now, new details from leaker @_snoopytech_ on Twitter corroborate the previous leak. SnoopyTech recently stated that the upcoming Chromecast HD will cost $40 USD, which was a mistake on the leaker’s part. SnoopyTech updated their Twitter post today to reflect the correct pricing, which happens to be $30 USD and $40 CAD. Further, according to the leaker, the device is already in stock “at a lot of retailers,” so we can expect Google to release the product soon.
Good news! CAD not USD. USD will be around 30.
