In June, rumors started swirling that Google was finally getting ready to release an all-new Nest Wifi router that’s embracing the future with a Wi-Fi 6E show. Now, it looks like this device has just received approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), referring to an upcoming release.

Brand New Unknown Google Device Featured in FCC This week with the model number “G6ZUC” which, according to 9to5Google, is a new Nest Wifi device. Looking at FCC docs, it’s only listed as a “wireless product,” but this is most likely a new router.

For those wondering, Wi-Fi 6E is an important step and upgrade for wireless technology, and many were frustrated when the previous Nest Wifi didn’t even support the Wi-Fi 6 standard. However, it looks like this new model will be more future-proof.

Wi-Fi 6E expands on the current Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard, allowing use of the 6GHz spectrum while providing improved speeds, lower latency, and more. Additionally, being able to access the latest 6GHz spectrum should help eliminate network congestion and interference from other devices—whether that’s your own devices—or your neighbors.

With Wi-Fi 6E, users will get more spectrum, wider channels, faster speeds and many other improvements. However, we’re not sure when Google’s new Nest Wifi 6E will arrive.

FCC documents state the secrecy for six months, suggesting that it may not arrive until sometime in early 2023. However, Google could release the next-generation router around the same time as the Pixel 7 phones and The upcoming Pixel 7 Pro, the Pixel tablet, and a new Pixel Watch later this year. We have to wait and see.
