Google will soon launch a smart speaker tasked with succeeding the original Google Home.
Google’s next hardware event – which will presumably take place in October – promises to be especially loaded. In addition to the new generation of Pixel phones and the company’s first_stick_ Android TV, Google would also be planning renew your Nest series devices, starting with a new smart speaker that we have been able to see for the first time today.
And it will not be any speaker. According to a recent FCC certification report that echoes the Twitter profile AndroidTV_Rumors, this new speaker will be in charge of giving over to the original Google Home, one of the most popular models in its category.

The images, taken directly from the report, show a medium-sized speaker which is known by the model code GXCA6. In addition, previous rumors have suggested that this model, codenamed “prince”, will have a noticeably improved audio system compared to the original Google Home, and with a format similar to that of the Sonos One.
Thanks to the photographs, you can see how the speaker will be covered in cloth and it will keep a rubber base similar to what we can find in the current Google Nest Mini. Also present switch to turn the microphone on or off and the power outlet, which unlike the Nest Mini does allow you to disconnect the charging cable from the speaker body. Broadly speaking, it is reminiscent of a Google Home Max of content size and vertical format.
At the moment, not much else is known about this new smart speaker. Still, hopefully improvements focus more on the audio field than in the capabilities of the Google Assistant.
The presentation date of this new model has not yet been announced, but it is expected that the event will celebrate during the first weeks of October, as is already a tradition with the company’s hardware events.
