Google has its yearly fall hardware event organized for October 9th, which is when we’ll see the official release of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on top of the conventional slate of Google-made hardware upgrades. One of those upgrades, to the company’s Chromecast line, seems to have been leaked in a somewhat embarrassing way by Best Buy, which sold the unannounced product to a consumer who pulled it up off the shelf, via AndroidPolice.
The consumer, who posted a photo of the product an account of the story on Reddit under the name GroveStreetHomie, says it didn’t even show up in Best Buy’s system, but that the cashier pulled up the product under a listing for an older Chromecast.
It’s not a ground-breaking news to know that Google is planning a third-generation Chromecast to supersede the 2015 model, which has since been outdated the 4K-equipped Chromecast Ultra of two years ago. Still, the wonders of Google’s event next month have all but vanished considering the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been extensively leaked over the course of the last two months, and now we can examine a new Chromecast off the list.
Everyone is waiting for the Pixel 3 line up to release as well. We’ll be posting more updates and leaks of the new Google products as well. Stay tuned!
