Google is getting ready to launch a new Chromecast. A set of photos obtained by TecnoBlog shows images of a new, cheaper Chromecast that looks exactly like the Chromecast with Google TV. That one currently retails for $50 – but is currently discounted by $10 at major US retailers as of this post.

It is expected that this low-cost Chromecast will be sold at the same $30 price point and may be deemed the new entry-level Chromecast.
