As Android TV continues to grow
in popularity, we’re seeing it show up in a lot of new places. Heck, it even showed up in a robot back at CES
this year alongside a boatload of other products
. Now, Anker is launching the Nebula Capsule II projector, and it comes with Android TV packed inside. This week, Anker has taken the wraps off of a handful of new products, but the Nebula Capsule II is without a doubt the most notable. This new product takes the same compact “soda-can” size of the original from last year, but packs in a higher 720p resolution at 200 lumens. It also now includes USB-C and 3 hours of power on its built-in 10,000 mAh battery. With Android TV
built-in, the Nebula Capsule II still offers support for Chromecast apps, but also for native apps and even Google Assistant
. It runs the same interface seen on something like the Nvidia Shield TV. HDMI in is also supported here for other devices like a Nintendo Switch.
Pricing for the Nebula Capsule II is certainly going to be higher, though. While the original costs just $349, the second-gen is going to run $349 for the super-early bird run on Kickstarter (which is already gone at the time of writing). General availability on Kickstarter will land at $399, but the final retail price is unknown at the moment.
Alongside the new projector, Anker has also finally released more details on its “Model Zero+” Google Assistant speaker which was shown off back at CES. Both the Model Zero and Model Zero+ will launch under the company’s “Soundcore” brand in November. The standard model will run $199. The Model Zero+, on the other hand, will run $249 for adding Google Assistant and speaker drivers “Designed by Scan-Speaker.” Personally, I’d definitely opt for the extra $50 to add Assistant.
More on Android TV:
Anker’s Nebula brand first arrived on the scene this summer with its Mars projector
. A portable cinema designed in partnership with JBL. At $600
, it’s a unique blend of portability and function that provides three hours of continuous playback. Today’s announcement brings much of the same functionality in a smaller package and roughly one-third of the weight. The Nebula Capsule runs on a version of Android Nougat but it supports a wide range of products and connectivity. That includes AirPlay, Chromecast and Miracast, which complements a built-in HDMI 1.4 port and Bluetooth capabilities. Built-in support for streaming apps from Netflix, YouTube, HBO, Amazon Prime and others round out the list of content providers available at launch.
Capsule sports a native resolution of 654 x 480, but it can handle 1080p and 4K streams with a few adjustments. The DLP lens can display a screen up to 100-inches in size, which can be shown out of the front or rear, and up on a ceiling, if needed. You won’t find as much power in the audio department on this model, in comparison to the previously-released Mars. But in a portable design like this, that’s to be expected. The internal 5200mAh battery pushes out 5W of sound when it use. Aside from the 2.5-hours of video playback, users can expect upwards of 40-hours when simply playing audio via Bluetooth. Anker will ship its latest release with a remote, Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger and a microUSB cable. Early bird backers can pick up a unit for $199
, with prices going up to $269 throughout the campaign as inventory allows. When the Nebula Capsule hits retail in December, it will have a list price of $349.
