Google’s first Android TV device is on its way, however the company’s current TV companion recently turned a year old and could soon be due for a replacement. A new Chromecast dongle with the model number H2G2-42 recently hit the FCC and while this doesn’t guarantee an immediate product release, it’s a clear sign that something is in the works.

The regulatory docs don’t give up too much information, but it appears that the device supports 802.11n WiFi and draws juice from its micro USB port like its predecessor. We’ve reached out to Google for comment about this device and will update this article if any additional information becomes available.
