has always featured the Chrome logo ever since it was released a couple of years ago. Google is now expected to launch a new Chromecast dongle at its event on October 4th and according to a new report, the new Chromecast may not feature a Chrome logo. This new dongle is reportedly going to be called Chromecast Ultra and one of its biggest features is said to be the ability to stream content in 4K UHD.

VentureBeat today shared an image of what it claims to be the new Chromecast from Google. The image clearly shows that the Chromecast Ultra only has a “G” logo which denotes that it’s a Google product. There’s no other logo on this device, certainly not a Chrome logo.

The “G” is meant to signify that this device has been “Made by Google.” This is actually believed to be the entire theme of this upcoming event where Google is also expected to show off its new smartphones.

Previous reports claim that the Chromecast Ultra is going to cost $69 which is almost double of what the existing Chromecast costs. However, Google may justify the price by listing its abilities which include 4K support.

Google has confirmed the October 4th event but hasn’t said what it plans on showing off on that day. Rumor has it that we will be treated to two new smartphones, the Google Home speaker, Chromecast Ultra, a new Wi-Fi router, and maybe more.
