Google has given everyone a teaser but you may not have to wait until October 4th to be able to experience it. Google’s UK Twitter account tweeted a GIF of the current Google Cardboard outlined and comments with a date range of 9/29/16 – 10/01/16.

It doesn’t make sense for Google to release information about a new Cardboard headset ahead of its October 4th event. But then again, if the event is going to be as large as its shaping up to be, this may be an easy way to release a smaller product without taking up much time.
It’s hard to tell what Google has up its sleeves, but we’ll have to wait just a couple more days to see if this actually has any merit, or if it’s just a promotion to an almost forgotten product.
