An interesting development has surfaced online in which an individual claims that he managed to buy the upcoming third-gen GoogleChromecast from a BestBuy store in the USA even before its release. Although he wasn't able to make much out of it - the device needs an update to make some sense and that update will likely roll out on or after October 9 - he did manage to sneak out to us, what the Chromecast 3 will seemingly look like. "I thought it was just a design refresh taking queues [sic] from the Chromecast Ultra [sic]". When he tried to buy it, the Best Buy employee couldn't scan the device, as it wasn't registered in the system and had a release date of October 9.

The new version of the Chromecast features the same $35 price as the 2015 model and includes a number of subtle visual differences. Apart from that, the original poster claimed that he was unable to set up to the device as the Google Home app wanted an update that has expectedly not been released yet. Lucky for GroveStreetHomie, the cashier still proceeded to sell him the device, and under the pricetag of a second generation Chromecast. But it is being said that the new Chromecast will support Bluetooth connectivity and boast of better Wi-Fi reception.
It's not clear what Google's plans are for a Bluetooth-enabled Chromecast, but the obvious application would be some kind of remote or game controller.
