Amazon’s home network company, Eero, maybe about to release its first Wi-Fi 6 router, judging by several leaks. The organization announced that two gadgets (Eero 6 Gateway and Eero 6 Extender) were in the FCC, and furthermore delivered a picture of Eero Pro 6, a crate with a third device.

Wi-Fi 6 is the latest version of the Wi-Fi standard, providing faster speed and better support for more devices connected to a single router. Eero adds support for the new standard after some of its competitors, who last year had Wi-Fi 6 products. This year, however, wi-fi 6 router prices have started to reach more general prices and become much more common.

As for the specifications, the new Eero gateway and range extender will reportedly be dual-range devices. While the Eero Pro 6 router will be three-band, which means it must have higher speeds.

A photograph of one of the gadgets shows up in another FCC archive, however it’s muddled which one.

It expected that the dual-range gateway will have a pair of Ethernet ports as well as a USB-C port for charging. But it reported that the extender will only have a port to charge. The routers also contain equipment to support the wireless protocol of Zigbee, which, as zatzNotFunny notes, can allow them to connect to devices such as smart light bulbs without having to pass through the Zigbee hub.

It is not yet known when the new devices will release. But the year has elapsed since Amazon used its event in late September 2019 to announce new Eero hardware along with a slew of new Alexa-enabled devices. If it follows a similar schedule this year, the official announcement may be just around the corner.
