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.
