Google's October 9 event is just a week away, and while leaks of the forthcoming announcements have been endless, Google may still have a few small hidden surprises. This new aqua color Home Mini Speaker is not one of them, though the company officially announced it on its website.
We have recently seen this aqua blue nuance when Google plagued it as a possible alternative for future Pixel 3. It sits somewhere between light blue, aqua and mint, and looks underdimensional but elegant and minimalist. The shadow would fit well in modern white-centric living rooms and add a touch of pastel colors without being too hard or eye-catching. But apart from the change in color, there is nothing but functional under the hood.
The aqua color begins shipping on October 29th from the Google Store and Walmart. The three other Home Mini colors will still be available, which tells us that Google's smallest smart speaker almost does not get an update next week.
Well, 29th October has come and gone … so where is the new aqua Home Mini? We reached out to Google to check.
For smart home fans living in the United States, the answer is: not here – at least not yet. If you are in Canada, UK or Japan, you can already order the Aqua Home Mini directly from the Google Store, but US customers must wait until sometime next month before they can do the same.
In the meantime, you should be able to find one at Walmart, but a little ahead of schedule – the dealer is now on track to launch Aqua Home Mini sales on October 31st.
