Best Buy accidentally sold a 3rd generation Chromecast to a customer

What we know so far about this new Chromcast is that it'll support Bluetooth and have faster Wi-Fi connections. Now someone was actually able to buy one from their local Best Buy.

This time a year ago, it was the Bose QC35 II headphones with Google Assistant built-in and this week the electronics retail giant has accidentally let a 3rd generation Chromecast slip through the front doors before Google has even announced its existence.

A Reddit user created a post showing off the newest Chromecast device from Google and saying they had bought it too early. When the cashier tried to scan the item, the Chromecast didn't appear in the database, but since the customer already had it in his hand and the price was identical to the second generation Chromecast, the guys over at Best Buy let him have it under the old SKU.

If you look closely at the box for the device, it has the same NC2-6A5 model number as the Chromecast (2015), which is why we think this might just be the Bluetooth-enabled model in a new case. The Chrome logo on the top has been replaced with a subtle G icon, matching the Pixel lineup. Micro-USB will still be used instead of USB-C and the third-gen Chromecast have a matte feel to it instead of a glossy design like the second-gen Chromecast.

However, the report added that the 33-year-old Ronaldo has continued to deny these claims insisting, it was a consensual activity. The statement was sent to Reuters by Ronaldo's agent Gestifute in response to a request for comment on the Der Spiegel story.

Upon setting up at home and comparing it to my 2nd gen Chromecast, it seems a little thicker.

Even though this is definitely an updated Chromecast, it's still not clear if this is the model that passed through the FCC last month.

Best Buy has also not said anything about this yet, and if the retailer wants to avoid the wrath of Google.it's probably for the best. Buy.

Another new surprise may have just been ruined from the upcoming Google hardware event on October 9.
