The new 4K capable Chromecast Ultra, expected to be announced on October 4th at Google’s upcoming ress event, will allegedly cost $69, according to a report by Android Police. If accurate, that’s a pretty hefty price for a device that doesn’t include a remote or a TV interface. That’s especially high considering we’ve just learned the Xiaomi Mi Box, the newest 4K capable Android TV box, will also cost $69 and can do so much more, including function as a Google Cast/Chromecast receiver. The Chromecast Ultra, which still may not be the device’s final name, will reportedly also have HDR support. Android Police is also reporting that Google Home, Google’s upcoming competitor to the Amazon Echo, will cost $129.
