If information circulating the Internet is to be believed, then Google may introduce a 4k-capable Chromecast on October 4. The device is expected to be priced at $69 (Rs. 4,600 approx.) Evan Blass, of @evleaks, recently showed off some images of the 4K-capable Chromecast. It looks the device will have the same form factor as the second generation Chromecast, but with a redesigned logo. It may also be called the Chromecast Ultra.
4K TVs aren’t affordable yet, but content providers like YouTube, Netflix and others have already introduced 4K content to the audience. The Chromecast, an affordable streaming device, can be a great option for viewing 4K content. Prices are expected to be higher this time, as the first and second generation Chromecast modules were launched at $35, or Rs. 3,399 in India, which is quite affordable.
