We expect the Google Nest Mini to launch alongside the Google Pixel 4 tomorrow in New York City. However, WinFuture obtained some leaked images and specs information about the new smart speaker that tells us pretty much everything we need to know.
As you can see in the images above and below, the Google Nest Mini looks remarkably similar to its predecessor, the Google Home Mini . In fact,WinFuture claims it will even have the same dimensions: 42mm in height and a circumference of 98mm.
However, the Nest Mini will come with a new bottom plate that will make the device easier to hang on walls. Currently, you can easily , but this is the first time Google will include an easy way to hang the device right out of the box.
Check it out below:
The Google Nest Mini appears to come in the same colors as the Home Mini: Charcoal (the dark gray you see here), Chalk, and Coral. There could also be a new Sky Blue option, but theres no word on the Aqua option we saw from the Home Mini.
Just as with the Home Mini, the Nest Mini works with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac with dual-band support (2.4 or 5.0GHz). It also supports Bluetooth and features Chromecast integration, once again, just like with the Home Mini.
Interestingly, the device does seem to have one significant difference, which is that it draws more power. The Home Mini only uses a 9W power supply while the Google Nest Mini uses a 15W power supply. Its not clear what this will mean as far as energy efficiency goes or if that extra juice will enable more powerful or better audio.
We also dont know anything about pricing for the Nest Mini, although since there dont seem to be too many upgrades here, we wouldnt expect it to go much higher than the $49 retail price of the Home Mini.
