google chromecast ultra

Google's next streaming dongle has leaked ahead of its announcement next week.

The Google Chromecast Ultra is able to stream video in 4K, which has four times as many pixels as high definition, making for a much sharper image. According to the leaked picture, it has the same circular look as its predecessor, but a more muted colour scheme.

Google's G logo also replaces the Chromecast one on the top of the device.

The Ultra is expected to launch on Tuesday, alongside Google's new flagship Android phones (which are thought to be named Pixel instead of Nexus). According to one report, it will cost twice as much as its predecessor, which could turn some punters off – Chromecast has always been one of the simplest and most affordable ways to stream to your TV, so a higher price would be a real shame.

Undoubtedly Google will keep the current model on sale as a more wallet-friendly option.

We'll bring you all the news from Tuesday's launch as soon as we have it.
