Back in JuneWe reported that Google is working on a new Wi-Fi 6 router, and it’s now leaked as the Nest Wifi Pro.
This device It hit the FCC over a month ago, and B&H now lists it as the “Google Nest Wifi Pro 6E Router.” The name is probably just ‘Google Nest Wifi Pro’, the product page confirms the use of Wi-Fi 6E, the latest available connectivity standard which reaches speeds of 9.6 Gbps under ideal conditions. In addition to:
The main difference between Wi-Fi 6 and 6E is the use of a third bandwidth, which is about 6 GHz to 7 GHz. In general, Wi-Fi 6E should not directly affect the potential speed of your home/office network. Instead, this 6 GHz band is typically less crowded, meaning there is less potential for home devices to interfere with each other.
The 2-pack costs $299.99 and the 3-pack costs $399.99, and the Nest Wifi Pro is available in Snow (white), Canvas (light brown), Mist (light blue), and Lemon (light yellow/green). This color matches the latest products like the Pixel Buds Pro. Nest Doorbell (battery)and the upcoming Pixel 7. Other than that, we don’t know anything else about the physical design.
Meanwhile, none of the lists mentions a point that acts as a network extender and a Google Assistant speaker. This is a return to the Google Wifi model that only offered one device. With this single hardware approach, the price difference isn’t as much as today’s Nest Wifi router and hotspot bundle ($269), adding another hotspot is $349. Instead, each unit has an Ethernet jack.
The “Pro” naming scheme suggests that the existing Nest Wifi will stick around and follow the Pixel 6 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Buds Pro.
This listing is clearly ahead of schedule, and B&H says Google’s Nest Wifi Pro is a “New Item – Coming Soon.” It is expected to be unveiled at the Made by Google event October 6 Along with the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, as well as the Pixel Watch. Google said Wait for Nest hardware in this event and this new Wi-Fi router can be connected 2nd Generation Nest Doorbell (Wired) which we leaked last week.
