Google’s big hardware event won’t take place until next month, but the leaks have already started, this time showing the price of a new “Google Nest Wifi Pro 6E router” courtesy of B&H Photo (via 9to5Google). The online store lists a variety of colors and combo packs starting at $199.99, each labeled as “New Item – Coming Soon”. In other words, as early as October 6, when this pro version of the Nest Wifi should be announced at the Made By Google event.

Unfortunately the listings don’t include any photos or specs, but we’re not entirely in the dark here. We’ve already seen details of what we plan to call the “Nest Wifi Pro” in an FCC listing that mentioned Bluetooth Low Energy and Thread (for Matter) mesh networking radios, in addition to Wi-Fi support. -Fi 6E at 6GHz for reduced signal interference and faster speeds.

B&H’s premature listings mention a $299.99 2-pack set, a $399.99 3-pack set, and colors that mimic other Nest products, including “Snow” (white), “Fog” ( pale blue), “Linen” (beige), and “Citronella” (yellowish-green). We expect this Pro model to coexist with the current Nest Wifi which costs $169 but can often be had for less.
