Google’s big hardware event isn’t until next month, but the leaks have already started, this time showing a price for 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, it’s coming as early as October 6, when this pro version of Nest Wifi is expected to be announced at the Made By Google event.

Unfortunately, the listings don’t include any pictures or specs, but we’re not completely in the dark here. We previously saw details of what we expect to be called “Nest Wifi Pro” in an FCC listing that mentioned Bluetooth Low Energy and Thread mesh mesh radios (for Matter), in addition to 6GHz Wi-Fi 6E support for reduced signal interference and faster speeds.

B&H’s early listings mention a 2-pack for $299.99, a 3-pack for $399.99, and colors that mimic other Nest products, including “Snow” (white), “Fog” (pale blue), “Lien ” (beige) and “ Lemongrass” (yellow-green). We expect this Pro model to co-exist with the current Nest Wifi, which retails for $169, but can often be had for less.
