Google's upcoming budget Chromecast device has started to make frequent visits to the rumor mill. The latest round of leaks not only offers promotional images and real-life images but also an idea of the pricing. Chromecast HD or Chromecast with Google TV (HD), whatever the name will be, is said to cost a lot more than what we were expecting it to be.
As per tipster Snoopy Tech, Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is set to cost $40 in the United States. The tweet adds that stocks have already reached stores and we may see its unboxing and hands-on videos soon. It is the leaked pricing that has caught everyone's attention. This is because the 4K Chromecast costs $49.99 which makes it harder to pick the HD version for such a low price difference.

In another leak, WinFuture.de has shared a bunch of Chromecast HD promotional images. These images show the device in all its glory and in White color. The overall appearance of the device is the same as the 4K variant. It would be difficult to tell apart between the two devices just by looking at them. The images also show the Google TV interface that will come loaded.
It is unknown when we will get to see the Chromecast HD launch. Some speculate that it may get official alongside the Pixel 7 series on October 6th. This is the event where we will see the Pixel Watch launch too. It is also expected maybe the Chromecast will get announced earlier but sales will begin on the same day as the event. Nevertheless, we will keep you updated on the latest developments.
