Did the FCC Just Reveal Google’s Next Streaming Dongle?

Google’s Chromecast devices are handy (and cheap) little dongles for anyone who wants to add streaming functionality to their TV. But since the Chromecast Ultra came out in the fall of 2016, there haven’t been any new Google-branded additions to the family.

However, a new device filed with the FCC appears to have exposed Google’s plans. Manufactured by Shenzen SEI Robotics Co Ltd, the device is described as a 4K ATV Stick. Based on the internals, which include a quad-core Amlogic S905X processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and support for 4K video at 60 fps, it’s not a big stretch to say that ATV may actually be short for Android TV.
