Google’s new wired Nest Doorbell is expected to be revealed during the company’s October 6 hardware event.
A Best Buy shopper found the product on store shelves.
A manager at the store told the customer that the doorbell wouldn’t be available for purchase until October 4.
With nonstop leaks of the Pixel 7 series and Pixel Watch over the last week, it should come as no surprise that another Google product has leaked before the company’s October 6 event. This time it seems that Google’s new wired Nest Doorbell has been spotted.
At Google’s hardware event this Thursday, we’re expecting to see a selection of new products. Outside of the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch, one of the items we expect will make an appearance at the event will be Google’s yet-to-be-revealed wired Nest Doorbell.
The Mountain View-based business announced that it would put out a second-generation Nest Doorbell in 2022 last year. Although it has yet to show off any renders of the device, Google has said that the doorbell will be wired for continuous 24/7 video.
Now that we’re only a couple of days away from Google’s event, it seems some stores already have the product in stock. In fact, one eagle-eyed shopper happened to notice the device on a shelf at Best Buy.
According to 9To5Google, the shopper found the Nest Doorbell and attempted to buy the product at a price of $179.99. However, Best Buy’s register system prevented the purchase of the unreleased device. A manager revealed that the Nest Doorbell wouldn’t be available for purchase until October 4.
Fortunately, the shopper was able to take a picture of the doorbell’s packaging. Apparently, the packaging looks fairly similar to the battery version of the doorbell, but has the words “2nd generation” and “Wired,” states 9To5Google. Two color variants were also found which include white and dark gray.
In addition to the new wired doorbell, we’re expecting to see Google’s Nest Wifi Pro at the October 6 event. We’ve seen product pages leak details about the device, but no one has reported seeing one in the wild yet.
