Amazon-owned Eero appears to be close to asserting new routers someday quickly, as new FCC filings appeared this week for gadgets that seem to be referred to as the Eero 6 Plus and the Eero Pro 6E. That 6E branding for the Pro could point out it should assist Wi-Fi 6E, that means it may possibly reap the benefits of 6GHz spectrum for sooner connections.
Router makers have slowly been introducing Wi-Fi 6E-capable mesh routers, although some have been fairly costly, similar to this $1,500 Orbi system from Netgear and Linksys’ $1,200 choice. While we don’t understand how a lot Eero’s 6E-capable system could value, it could be extra reasonably priced than these choices, provided that a 3-pack for the Eero 6 Pro launched at $599.
The new router names present up on labels Eero included within the filings. On the labels, the Eero 6 Plus has a mannequin variety of R010001, whereas the Eero Pro 6E’s mannequin quantity is S010001 — each of which didn’t present up as presently out there gadgets once I googled them. The new names recommend these routers may be extra iterative upgrades or get slotted in alongside the presently out there Eero 6 and Eero Pro 6.
Amazon and Eero didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
