It looks like Google has seriously decided to work on devices with a more modest budget. First, we got the fairly affordable Google Pixel 4a, but now it’s the time for the Android TV dongle.
Not only is this little TV dongle supposed to offer a full-fledged experience of using Android TV, but we also learned that the manufacturer estimated it at a fairly modest amount by its standards.
The price tag for Sabrina was found on the internal product list of the American Home Depot chain. Interestingly, this chain of stores is not associated with a place to buy electronics, but perhaps Google specifically decided to start selling there in order to maintain some secrecy.
Google Sabrina: Android TV dongle will cost $49 only
Anyway, it’s worth noting that the $50 price tag for such a large company is the right decision if Google has decided to expand its fan base. Many believed that Google would ask for much more than this.
Also, Google remained true to itself and decorated the new device in different colors. Home Depot’s internal listings show three different options: Como Blue, Rock Candy, Summer Melon. The manufacturer did not forget about the usual black version.
It is rumored that Google may officially unveil the TV dongle at an upcoming launch, which will also showcase the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. This event should take place this fall.
As we mentioned above, The $350 mid-range Google Pixel 4a smartphone was recently announced, the smartphone has a 5.81-inch screen and is powered by the Snapdragon 730G with 6GB of RAM. The only storage option is 128GB, which is twice as much as last year. The smartphone is available in only one color – black.
The smartphone has the familiar 12.2MP sensor that we saw in last year’s flagship Pixel 4. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back. The smartphone has a 3140 mAh battery, more than previous small Pixel devices. As always, Google plans to update this smartphone for at least three years with the latest security patches. In addition, the phone offers a stock Android experience free of bloatware.
