Sony NSZ-GU1 Google TV spotted at FCC

With the Google Chromecast creating waves in the electronics industry, Sony seems to be working on something quite similar.


According to documentation available at the FCC, Sony is working on a Google TV version with model number NSZ – GU1. The device looks quite similar to the recently launched Google Chromecast. However it’s not yet known whether it would offer the same functionality as the Chromecast.

The NSZ – GU1 weighs 70 grams and measures 109 x 42 x 22.5 mm which is comparatively bigger than the Google Chromecast. The device is expected to be powered by the low-power Marvell De3108 SoC along with 1 GB of RAM and a massive 8 GB of internal memory. The device has support for 720p video besides Wi-Fi b/g/n, USB, IR and Bluetooth 3.0 support. While the NSZ – GU1 has just arrived at the FCC, it hard to say whether the device would feature at Sony’s upcoming event on September 4.
