3G/4G cameras, external powered with always-on recording

I'm using the Reolink Go PT 4G at the moment and I'm happy with the performance and features of the camera so far. However, the camera is not recommended for always-on recording due to it being battery powered and it is not recommended by Reolink to keep permanent power to the camera via a USB supply.
Might Reolink consider either adding 3G/4G capability to some of their existing hard-wired or PoE powered cameras or introduce a line of cameras that are always-on, always recording to SD, powered not by a battery but powered either via USB, 12v input or via PoE and have 3G/4G capability for remote live viewing, email alerts, cloud upload, etc... ?
A use case would be on a remote construction site where there are numerous methods to keep a small camera powered all the time (12v or USB supply from a machine, PoE from network switch, etc...) but where the 3G/4G capability would allow easy remote access and data upload. The reason I'd opt for 3G/4G handled by the camera too is that Reolink devices are supported by V by Vodafone natively whereas these SIMs would not be supported by an external modem connected to the camera.
