FCC filing suggests Google may be working on a new 2015 Nexus Player


A new device from Google has just passed through the FCC, revealing certain clues that suggest it could be a new Android TV device. 

The device has be classified by the FCC as a multimedia device, with the following characteristics;

  • 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi radios, as well as Bluetooth LE
  • 1 LAN port, 4 USB ports, and 1 microUSB port.

Another clue that suggests that this device could be the next Nexus Player is its FCC label. The label is curved, which means that Google might keep the round design seen on the original Nexus Player. Although the FCC label on the original Nexus Player wasn’t curved, this assumption would be the most logical.


The fact that the device has gone through the FCC means that it could be ready for launch soon. Google might launch its next Nexus Player alongside the new anticipated Nexus smartphones, just like it did last year when it launched the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.

No information was given on the device specs, however we can expect an improved chipset for faster performance, and most probably a new improved remote.

Google will be launching its new Nexus devices on September 29th, so hold on before getting yourself a Nexus Player.
