At Google’s big I/O developer conference this week, the company announced new Android TV hardware. The ADT-2 is a streaming device that is being given away to developers to replace the discontinued Nexus Player. There are no plans to offer the new device to consumers. This is the same device that leaked last month through the FCC and it shares many similarities with the current 3rd-generation Amazon Fire TV.
According to AndroidPolice, who spoke with members of Google’s Android TV team, the ADT-2 is capable of 4K at 60fps playback and HDR. It is powered by an Amlogic 905X chip, which is a slightly older version of the processor in the new Fire TV. Just like the Fire TV, it comes with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
Even though it resembles a Chromecast, it does run Android TV version P and comes with a remote. Developers can apply to receive the ADT-2, which will begin shipping out this summer.
