google smart speaker

The Google Home Smart Speaker was announced almost four years back. With the launch of the smart home products like the Google Home Max, Home Mini, and Nest Mini, this portfolio of the corporate has expanded. Now, it’s like Google is in plans to launch another smart speaker.

A fresh leak hinted by a Twitter-based tipster hinted that the upcoming smart speaker might be the successor to the initial Nest smart speaker. The leaked images show that it might be launched under the Nest brand and has been spotted on the Japanese Wireless Standards website.

Google Nest Smart Speaker First Look

The upcoming speaker is believed to be designed to stand upright on a side with the Google logo. The speaker appears to be wrapped in a similar fabric of chalk shade just like the other Google smart speakers. It appears to flaunt a mute button at the top and Google G logo closer to the bottom. And, the bottom right corner appears to feature a hole for the power adapter. Furthermore, the pictures show that the smart speaker could bundle a 30W adapter alongside a barrel mouth plug rather than a USB Type-C connector.

The upcoming Google Nest smart speaker is touted to be an interactive media streaming device, as per the leaked documentation. It appears to feature a length of 220mm, which can make it taller than that of the Google Home Max. Also, it’s believed to feature WiFi and Bluetooth.

What we expect

As of now, there’s no word regarding when we can expect the Google smart speaker could see the light of the day. But we will expect it to make its way into the market during the holidays. Until there’s an official confirmation regarding the upcoming smart speaker from Google with a unique design as seen here, we cannot come to any conclusion. So, this report must be taken with a grain of salt.
