Google's new Android TV device, user interface leaked

03 Jun 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Google will soon introduce a new Android TV device with a revamped user interface, according to leaked material obtained by XDA Developers. It will also come with remote control.

Platform reboot

Apparently not fully content with its partners efforts in the area of Android TV, Google will soon launch its own device. While it looks like a Chromecast, it will reportedly run the full Android TV operating system - just like Nvidia Shield or Sony TVs. We now have pictures and more details thanks to a leaked marketing video obtained by XDA Developers. The pictures depict a dongle device in three colors, code-named 'Sabrina'. It will apparently come with a white remote control, an Amlogic SoC, and support for Dolby Vision HDR.

Furthermore, the report includes pictures that show off a new content-focused user interface for Android TV. Google had previously said that it was planning yet another refresh of Android TV. The user interface was most recently refreshed as part of Android 8 (Oreo).

Protocol reported in May that the dongle will be sold under Google's Nest branding, come with a new "content-centric user interface", and be priced around $80 dollars. Google was originally planning to host an Android 11 launch event today June 3 but it has been postponed. The company's annual I/O event was cancelled. It seems plausible that what we are looking at here is Android TV version 11.
