Chromecast Ultra revealed in leaked image

Google’s Chromecast is expected to get a big upgrade next month with a new 4K-enabled model reportedly called the Chromecast Ultra and priced at $69. Now a fresh leak may offer our first look at the device ahead of its official unveiling.

VentureBeat published what looks like a pretty official render of the Chromecast Ultra in black. It’s almost identical to the current model (pictured in the gallery up top) with one big difference: The Chrome icon emblazoned on previous models is gone, and it’s been replaced with a simple Google “G.”

That’s the same branding we’ve seen in leaked images of the new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. It makes sense considering the “Made by Google” tagline that the company’s been using to promote its upcoming October 4 event, where both gadgets are expected to debut.

We don’t know what other features the Chromecast Ultra might support.

Google could also use the same event to unveil its first Daydream VR viewer and a Google Wifi router. We’re expecting to get the final launch details for Google Home, and the company might even offer an early look at its alleged Android-Chrome OS hybrid operating system, codenamed Andromeda.
