As revealed by Google's filings, the first model is described as an "Interactive Media Streaming Device", while the latter is simply listed as a "Wireless Device", making it highly likely that the models in question are the long-rumored Chromecast Ultra successor and its accompanying remote.
Codenamed 'Sabrina', the alleged streaming dongle is said to act as a Chromecast replacement, allowing users to put away their smart devices and access a full Android TV interface on their television screen that can be controlled via a dedicated remote.
Of course, we won't know for sure until Google makes an official announcement, which should be soon given the FCC filing.
