Following its current appearance in an FCC filing, Google’s long-rumored Android TV dongle, is now closer than ever to an official reveal thanks to a listing found within United States seller House Depot’s internal systems. And, if the listing’s rates is to be thought, it will be surprisingly budget-friendly.
As reported by 9to5Google, the Android TV-powered Chromecast Ultra follower will be priced at $4999(around ₤37/ AU$68), putting it right in the same ballpark as the Amazon TELEVISION Fire Stick 4K and the Roku Streaming Stick

According to Home Depot’s listing, which can still be seen thanks to Google Cache, the streaming device will be called Sabrina based on previous reports.
That stated, it deserves noting that both the image and description included in Home Depot’s now-removed Sabrina listing was that of the present Chromecast Ultra, and not of the expected Android TV-powered dongle with remote– this indicates the listing is more of a placeholder than anything concrete.
Of course, there is some new details to be discovered within House Depot’s system, including the names of a minimum of three anticipated colors for the gadget: Rock Candy, Como Blue and Summer Season Melon.
While Como Blue recommends a comparable color to the Nest Mini’s Sky version, the other 2 color alternatives could be just about anything. We won’t understand for sure until Google formally unveils its brand-new streaming gadget, which need to be sooner rather than later.
