Google’s October 9 event is only a week away, and while leaks of the upcoming announcements have been endlessly pouring in, Google may still have a few small hidden surprises. This new aqua color Home Mini speaker isn’t one of them, though, as the company just officially announced it on its website.
When the Google Home Mini debuted last year, it was available in a dark “Charcoal” grey, a lighter “Chalk” grey and a pinkish orange “Coral.” Today, a week before Google’s annual Pixel event, the company is unveiling a brand new hue of the Home Mini — a minty blue “Aqua.”
“Coral is warm, Aqua is cool,” said Isabelle Olsson, the head of industrial design for Google Home, to Engadget. “It’s a soothing yet fresh option that could be used to either contrast or blend in.”
The Pixel 3 was also leaked with a similar hue, so its a match!Aesthetic consistency among its hardware line has become an increasing focus for Google in recent years.
The Google Home Mini in Aqua will be available on October 29th for $49, which is the same price as the other colors. As for what else Google will unveil this year, we’ll just have to wait until next week to find out.
