A new Google “Wireless Product” has hit the FCC at the unusual time of Friday evening. It bears some similarities to a device that arrived at the FCC in March that has yet to launch.
Like that previous device, we suspect GWX3T to be a Nest camera. The label and its location — “back of product” — are identical, while the same Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connectivity are present.
However, today’s Google product is classified as a “Wireless Product” rather than “Wireless Streaming Device.” No other device in recent Google history has been called a “Product.” Additionally, there is no information about the power supply. The March device was notable for featuring a rechargeable Li-polymer battery.
Google already promised a “new lineup of security cameras for 2021″ as part of “investing in new innovations.” A cheaper wired option is not surprising.
The first new Google device to get FCC certification in 2021 was the 2nd-generation Nest Hub in January, and it saw a March launch. Later that month, Pixel Buds A-Series hit the regulatory body and dropped just yesterday.
GWX3T today loses short-term confidentiality on December 2, while G3AL9 is set for September 24. A new line of Nest cameras could be announced at this year’s fall event.
