The Google Home Hub, a device that we believe was first revealed earlier in the week as Google’s first smart display, likely just stopped off at the FCC. A device under Google’s FCC ID and labeled as a “interactive video streaming device” had its RF, Bluetooth, and WiFi tested.
The device carries a model number of H1A and FCC ID A4RH1A. There is no specific mention of this being a Google Home device, but so you know, the original Google Home has a model number of A4RH0ME, the Home Mini is A4RH0A, and the Home Max is A4R-H0B. The next wave of Google Home devices jumping from H0 to H1 is a likely next step.
As far as new info, we’ve got the below image for where the Google Home Hub label will sit. This is a bottom view of the device, which shows a curve that matches up to the retail listing images from a couple of days ago. It’s clear that they’ve cut off a portion to help conceal its identity. The portion they cut off is where the display would sit if you were looking at the Hub from underneath.
As I mentioned, the FCC tested Bluetooth, as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi.
We should see this device alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on October 9.
