Specs of the upcoming Google Chromecast streaming dongle have leaked thanks to firmware sleuthing by developer Kuba Wojciechowski. After seeing leaked photos of the device last week, the new information reveals the meat of the matter, aka the hardware and software details of the new Chromecast and its official branding.
The build I obtained is from July and is most likely the same as the one that will be preinstalled on the device. It is based on Android 12 with Google TV. It does also confirm the “Chromecast HD” branding. pic.twitter.com/KHL02I9uRW
