“Nest Cam” is a super-thin redesigned Dropcam

Nest has a big event set for next week, but we may already know exactly what it plans to announce. On Wednesday, we saw evidence that the Google-owned company was developing a new wireless camera. Not too long afterward, the actual device leaked as well.

A pair of images obtained by Droid-Life reveal the redesigned and rebranded camera. The gadget looks a lot thinner, especially at the base. The Dropcam logo has also been replaced with “nest.” The new device is apparently called Nest Cam, officially bringing it into the fold with the company’s other home automation products.

The same leak also includes a few photos of a redesigned Nest app, which includes support for the updated camera along with older Dropcam models. The software looks pretty simple, though it’s possible this is an early or incomplete build.

There’s still no word on when any of this will launch or how much the new Nest Cam will cost, though we’re guessing it won’t be much more than the $199 Dropcam Pro. Thankfully, Nest’s press event is right around the corner, so it won’t be long before we know exactly what the company has planned.
