A wireless device, with battery, but without access to the mobile network is in preparation at Google. Little reflection to determine what it could be.
FCC certification is one of the last steps a manufacturer takes before marketing a new product in the United States. The step is mandatory for a device incorporating wireless communication capabilities, to verify that it complies with the standards in place.
In this case, it is a new product from Google that recently passed through the offices of the FCC. The Google “G28DR”, a “wireless device” according to the certification.
Probably a Google Nest device
Obviously, Google’s filing with the FCC does not reveal much information about this new product, nor its price, nor its design and even less precise characteristics. Brands can indeed choose to ask the FCC to keep the information secret until the presentation of the product.
This Google G28DR device would be equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, with compatibility of the 5 GHz frequency band. It does not include NFC or UWB, which excludes the brand’s small “accessory” connected devices. The absence of a mobile network also eliminates the possibility of a smartphone or a nomadic autonomous device. On the other hand, it does integrate a 3.65 V battery, similar to what is typically found in cameras. This battery rules out the idea of a totally indoor device like the Chromecast.
In the large family of Google products, we share the conclusions of 9To5Google, it is probably a Nest device for the connected home. For example, an outdoor camera that could use its battery as a backup system in the event of a power outage.
