It may be a while before Amazon takes the wrappers off its next family of Alexa-enabled devices, given the Christmas season tends to be its focus. However, Bloomberg is offering a sneak peek at what Amazon may have in store for later in 2021. “A new Echo device with a large touchscreen that attaches to the wall and serves as a smart home control panel, video chat device and media player,” according to its sources.
“The company’s Lab126 hardware division is designing the device to be a digital command center, showing users upcoming calendar events, controlling accessories like lights and locks, and playing music and video.”
It would be a logical step on from the existing Echo Show smart display, with the report suggesting the new device could cost $200-$250.
