Are you hoping for a successor of Google Nexus Player? Well, we are too…

Google has recently discontinued the Nexus Player so we are left with either using our phones and a Chromecast, or using another device (like a Roku, or Amazon Fire TV, or Amazon Fire Stick). The Discontinuation of the Nexus Player this year leaves an opening for a new device. We feel Google will look to fill the void left by the Nexus Player with a new device. We are dubbing it Google ChromeTV. This new device that we are hoping for will be more compact than the Google Nexus Player but bigger than a Chromecast. It will feature updated specs and SD support. It will also be have a bundled in keyboard for browsing the web. In theory it would be a Chromebook that plugs in your TV.

  • NVidia X1 Chipset or something similar. (While Nvidia chip sets and android haven’t exactly had the brightest past, the X1 worked out pretty good for the Nexus 9 and the Nvidia Shield TV)
  • SD Support… This was a big issue with the original Nexus Player especially that, it only had 8GB of ROM.
  • 32GB of on board memory.
  • 4GB of RAM
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • 802.11ac, 2x2 MIMO, w/ Ethernet
  • Bluetooth Keyboard
  • Ability to pair and Google cast without network access
  • USB 3.0
  • USB Type-C
  • Price around $149.99
