Nest has been in the business of selling Wi-Fi enabled smart home security cameras for a while now and it appears that the company is looking to set itself apart from the competition. Word on the street is that Nest has a new product in the pipeline, the product is said to be a 4K camera with advanced smart features. Nest is reportedly going to announce this product soon.
The folks at AndroidPolice have heard from a trusted source that Nest is “on the verge” of announcing its 4K home security camera. Despite the moniker, it reportedly won’t record in 4K resolution, but it will use the 4K resolution to drive some impressive zooming functionality.
Even though the image sensor in Nest’s new camera will be able to record in 4K, it will only limit it to 1080p. It will basically zoom in on a 1080p section of the full frame. This will enable users to see more detail when zooming in. That’s a good feature to have on a camera that’s primarily going to be used for security.
The camera itself will be powered by USB Type-C and will have a LED ring around it to indicate that it’s recording. The design is said to be similar to Nest’s existing Outdoor camera but the camera itself is meant for indoor use only. The scribe reports that it’s going to be priced higher than $300 and that Nest is going to announce it officially by the end of this month.
