Blink is poised to refresh their camera line with 4th gen models that will likely replace 3rd gen. Of course Blink is an Amazon subsidiary, sitting alongside Ring in providing a number of monitoring solutions, that built their brand on affordability and a pair of AAs. As such, I don’t expect much change in relation to pricing or power… or video quality, as transmitting more pixels and/or at higher bitrates would certainly impact battery life.
What we know for sure is that Blink is pleasingly refreshing their hardware appearance. Much as the new Arlo Essential 2 lineup will be refined while maintaining its visual identity. Likewise, I expect the company is looking to further reduce manufacturing expenditures with this iteration. On the flip side, their engineers have proven to be quite clever and I could imagine a scenario where they (and others) try to replicate the low-power edge AI that Apple removed from the licensing pool.
