An authoritative source revealed the design of the new Google set-top box
By the end of the month, the presentation of new Google devices is expected, including a set-top box running the Google TV operating system (formerly Android TV), known by the code name Sabrina. The design of the device was fully revealed by the authoritative German insider Roland Quandt.
The new set-top box is expected to replace the Chromecast Ultra. The flat-shaped device will use a short cable to connect to the TV via HDMI. Judging by the presence of a USB Type-C connector on the dongle itself, it will also need to be connected to the TV via USB to provide power.
Along with the set-top box, users will get a compact remote control with a small number of buttons for navigating the interface. There are also separate buttons for quick access to the Google Assistant, as well as launching Netflix and YouTube.
According to available information, the device will be based on a quad-core AMLogic S905X2 processor with 2 GB of RAM and a small built-in storage.
The set-top box is expected to cost around $50. The presentation will take place on September 30 along with the new Pixel smartphones.
