A new FCC filing reveals an upgraded variant of the Google Fiber TV box. As the name indicates, this will be limited to regions where Google Fiber is currently supported. We expect Google to share more details on this home entertainment device during next week’s I/O event.
The FCC filing reveals the device to be packing WiFi 802.11 a/c/n, 10/100 Ethernet, MoCA, Bluetooth and HDMI 1.4. The model number for the Fiber TV box is mentioned as GFHD200. There’s not much information apart from this at the moment, but it’s not hard to predict what’s coming.
We’re expecting the Fiber TV to be running Android with the complete suite of Google services on board. The company is also expected to announce a standalone Android TV console to take on the likes of the Apple TV and the recently launched Amazon Fire TV. Google TV has been available for quite some time now, but has failed to take off. So a complete revamp makes logical sense.
