• A Google filing for a “media streaming device” has just passed the FCC and taken in conjunction with yesterday’s leak is likely the upcoming Google Home “Mini.” Documents filed with the regulatory agency reveal a circular base that lines up with the renders of the smaller Assistant speaker.
  • Today’s filing has FCC ID A4RHOA, which is very similar to the original Home’s rather appropriate A4RH0ME.
  • Google notes that the label is adhered to the “chassis of the device” with a “very strong pressure sensitive glue.” Given the rumored $49 price point, the adhesive is possibly one cost cutting measure used by the Home Mini.
  • Meanwhile, Test reports reveal that the device has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi radios and is “primarily constructed of uncoated plastic.” Additionally, there is an AC-DC adapter for power.
