(Pocket-lint) - Amazon-owned Ring appears to be readying a follow-up to the Ring Video Doorbell 2, as evident by FCC filings and leaked retailer listings. 

The FCC filings indicate Ring is developing a Video Doorbell 3 as well as a Video Doorbell 3 Plus. Zatz Not Funny also spotted Home Depot and Target link redirects with snippets of info about the yet-to-be-announced devices. Perhaps the most interesting "leak" comes from Ring's website, which had a full listing for the Video Doorbell 3. Although it's no longer live, you can view a cache.

Add up all the details from these scoops, and the Video Doorbell 3 will surely replace the Video Doorbell 2, as it is the same size, has the same price ($199), and has similar features. The main difference? The new model brings 2.4GHz and 5GHz dual-band Wi-Fi - versus 2.4GHz on the Video Doorbell 2 - and a “near” motion zone that provides motion detection up to 15 feet in front of your home.

"Video Doorbell 3 also has improved screw strength, a redesigned easy-to-remove faceplate, and automatic chime connection, which makes installing your video doorbell easier than ever," according to Ring's now-removed webpage. As a result, the Video Doorbell 3 will require new wedge and corner kits, but those will be bundled. You also need to choose between silver and bronze faceplates.

As for the $229 Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus model, here's how Ring described the more premium version of its new video doorbell:

"The main difference is that Video Doorbell 3 Plus includes our Pre-Roll technology, which allows you to see an additional four seconds of video before the motion event was even triggered - a first-to-market feature for battery-powered doorbells and unique exclusively to Ring. Pre-Roll video is in black and white and in low resolution to conserve your battery life."

It's Home Security Week on Pocket-lint

We suspect these doorbells will be announced soon, as FCC filings and leaks of this scale usually precede a debut by mere weeks.
