Google's Chromecast media streaming technology already comes built into some TVs and displays, but those unfortunate enough to lack such gear, will soon be able to add it with a new Chromecast dongle. Looks like an early morning for this Ausdroider.

Google's Launch Nite In event on September 30, which will kick off at 11am PT - October 1 at 4am AEST - and is expected to show off a new Chromecast, smart speaker, and multiple Pixel phones. Livestream details are yet to be announced but it will most likely happen through YouTube. Even with the Australia tax the device is expected to be under that mark with it costing just $49.95 (or $59,98 - leaks vary) in the United States - we're watching you Google, please make it so.

It's been about a month and a half since Google finally revealed the Pixel 4a, but it turned out to not be the true successor to the Pixel 4. Google it seems have chose to stick with a more affordable range. Hence the tagline you can see in the invite below - "your couch is the best seat in the house".

Pixel-wise, don't expect Google to use the flagship level Snapdragon 865 SoC, instead the company has always been rumored to go with the 765 family, because it's more affordable.

The Pixel 4a 5G is going to be basically a bigger version of the 4a, with the Snapdragon 765G at the helm to enable that 5G connectivity, but it might actually sport an additional camera on the back. Hopefully the products launched can live up to the hype surrounding them.
