The Google Nest Mini, as claimed by the company, is “smarter and faster than the original“. Well, more on that later.

The device measures 3.85 inches x 1.65 inches and weighs in at 181 grams.
Owing to the fact that the Google Nest Mini has a new custom driver added by the Mountain View company, the device is being claimed to offer two times stronger bass than the Google Home Mini.
