Google is currently working on the Nest Mini, the successor of the current Google Home Mini. According to a leak, this new iteration would be equipped with a 3.5 mm jack and enjoy a better sound. In addition, it would be easy to install the speaker to a wall with a wall bracket included in the box. We take stock of the first available information.
Google intends to launch a new version of Google Home Mini released in 2017, report our colleagues 9to5Google. Unsurprisingly, this new connected speaker inherits the rebranding of the range and the Nest appellation. According to a reliable source, the new Home Mini would be called simply "Nest Mini".
Nest Mini: Google prepares successor to Google Home Mini
That's not all. The Nest Mini would enjoy a better sound than the original Google Home Mini, which we tested. As we explained in our test of the time, the sound of the speaker saturates quickly and the bass are absent. For music lovers, it's better to turn to the standard Google Home or Google Home Max. The Nest Mini could change the game with a higher maximum volume and better bass.
Like Echo Dot, the rival of Google Home Mini with Alexa, the Nest Mini would get a 3.5mm jack. It would therefore be possible to connect the speaker connected to a traditional speaker by wire. No need to go through the Bluetooth connection. The Nest Mini would come with a wall mount for easy installation on a wall. Many third-party sellers already offer very successful wall mounts for the Home Mini (but also for competing speakers, such as Echo or HomePod).Apple).
On the design side, the Nest Mini would be globally similar to its predecessor. Finally, it would also be equipped with proximity sensors to detect your presence, such as Nest Hub Max, Nest Guard and Nest Protect. Google should unveil its new generation of smart speakers in the fall during the presentation of Pixel 4.
