- It may come with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. When you have Chromecast, you have minimal specs to cast media files. So, The hardware specs enough for running smoothly. But in the Android TV stick, you have to run the entire OS with the applications. Thus it needs additional specs. There is no chance that Google will add extra hardware like other manufacturers.

There is always less RAM consuming lite versions for every app. But In my opinion, if they put 4GB RAM, It will be useful when dealing with High resource consuming apps.
- The OS version will be Android 10.
- The processor may come with a 64Bit Amlogic Quad-Core processor.
- The cost of the device may be around $80.
