2020 has been a different year in many ways, but we’ve seen trends consolidate that had already started when it all got out of hand. In Europe and other countries, the use of smart speakers has exploded and companies like Google and Amazon will try to keep it on the rise.
Google is working on a very special speaker
He was the first to see leaked information indicating certain characteristics of his new speaker, possibly the successor to the Nest Hub.
This model, which was seen in the form of an FCC document, would be the first in the family to use a Soli radar, the same we’ve seen in some corporate experiments and in the Pixel 4.
This type of radar uses technology that operates on a very specific frequency, which has been shown in the documents. Maybe it’s used to detect the presence of a person or maybe it allows hand gestures. The latter is the most likely since the frequency band between 58 and 63.5 GHz is mentioned, the same as that used by the Pixel 4.
In addition, the device would be compatible with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, but also with the protocol Zigbee,
Although at no time is the Nest brand mentioned, the description of the device is very similar to that given in the days of members of this family, such as the Nest Hub, the Nest Hub Max, the Nest Mini, Nest Wifi or Nest Audio.
For the moment, we do not know more about this device, nor its shape or dimensions, nor its launch date, let alone its price or availability in countries like Europe.
