Google's upcoming Nest speaker leaked for the first time in photos yesterday. Now, instead of waiting for more leaks to show off the smart speaker, Google has gone ahead and shared a photo and teaser video of the speaker with some publications.
The image shared by Google shows off its upcoming Nest speaker in all its glory. Compared to the original Google Home, the new Nest speaker does have a very different design, it is actually unlike any other smart speaker in the market right now. The entire front of the speaker is now covered with a mesh material and the photo also confirms the presence of four LEDs at the front.
The company also shared a quick teaser video of the Nest speaker which hints at it being portable and gives us a glimpse at the different colors the speaker will be available in.

It is unusual for a company to share product photos of a device months ahead of its release, but then Google did something similar with the Pixel 4 last year where it confirmed its design after the first set of leaks.
As previously reported,y the Google Nest smart speaker will be a replacement to the original Google Home. It will feature a bigger driver that should help with sound quality, and it will also have a physical mute switch like on the Nest Mini. It is likely that Google will announce this new smart speaker alongside its Pixel 5 lineup in October.
