Google Home Mini launching in new Aqua color on October 29

In exactly one week, Google will be hosting an event in New York City to unveil its all-new Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones. Just ahead of that, the company's announced a new color option for its Home Mini smart speaker.

Joining the Charcoal, Chalk, and Coral colors that have been available since the Home Mini's launch last fall, the latest addition is Aqua — a cool, minty color that offers a great contrast to the warm, red-toned Coral.

Commenting on the new color, Google says that Aqua is "soothing yet bright and fresh allowing it to either contrast or blend into each unique home."

You'll be able to purchase the Aqua Google Home Mini starting October 29 for the usual $49 asking price.

Announcing a new color like this probably means we won't see a new Home Mini announced alongside the Pixel 3 next week, but seeing as how we're also expecting a new Chromecast, Home Hub, and Pixelbook 2, Google's already got its hands plenty full.
