‘Smart TV kit’ bundling Google Home Mini and third-gen Chromecast leaks on RedditOctober 4, 2018
Yet another Google product has leaked before the company’s October 9th Pixel event, and this time, it’s a Smart TV kit that bundles a Google Home Mini and the new, unannounced third-generation Chromecast. In a Reddit post that has since been deleted, a retail employee posted a photo of the upcoming Smart TV kit with the caption, “Just got these bad boys in at work today.” It’s unknown where the Reddit user works, but we can guess that the product is from Walmart, based on the fact that the previous Smart TV kits were selling as a Walmart-exclusive for $74.
This is further confirmation of a third-generation Chromecast, as just days earlier, Best Buy accidentally stocked the unannounced product and solid it to a customer. We don’t know how much the new Chromecast will cost, or whether the new Smart TV kit will be more expensive than before, but there are only a few more days before we’ll find out officially during Google’s event.
