- Google is reportedly developing a video streaming device that will ship with a dedicated remote and Android TV software, unlike the Chromecast devices.
- A new leak has revealed the design of the Android TV streamer, codenamed Sabrina.
- We also got a glimpse of the new UI and the remote that Google is designing.
While Roku, Apple, and Amazon have released dongles for streaming video with their own built-in user interfaces and operating systems, Google has been content to let people pair their phones, tablets, and computers with Chromecast devices that lack a UI of their own. After all these years, it looks like Google is finally ready to compete more directly with those rivals, and a new leak has given us our best look yet at the unannounced device.
For some time now, we have been hearing rumors about a streaming device being developed by Google that would ship with a remote and Android TV software onboard. On Tuesday, XDA Developers shared purported renders of the dongle, which is codenamed Sabrina, has an oblong shape, and will ship in white, black, and pink.
