Google is releasing a smaller edition of their Google Home smart speaker powered by the Assistant. This is according to recent reports, and new leaks from Droid-Life corroborate them. As you can see below, the Google Home Mini (as it’s called) will arrive with a form factor similar to that of a hockey puck and ship in Charcoal, Chalk, and Coral colors.

Unfortunately, the Google Home Mini won’t work wirelessly at least according to these images, so you’ll have to plug it into a wall outlet in order to use it. Additionally, its indicator lights appear to be at the top to identify when the Google Assistant has registered a command.

According to DL, the Google Home Mini will go directly up against the Amazon Echo Dot and cost just $49 when it goes on sale. Its exact launch date isn’t known yet, but it will be unveiled at Google’s October 4th event.
