Amazon will have a new Echo ideal for the connected home

A new Echo to mount on the wall

During the last years we have been seeing how Amazon has managed to get into millions of homes with its Echos. What started with a simple smart speaker grew little by little and there is already a wide Amzon Echo catalog where there are even models with a screen and with which they cover a wide variety of cases and needs. Or almost, because there are always options to go one step further.

According to information published by Bloomberg, Amazon would be working on a new Echo that would seek to be the control center within the connected home. Of course, this would not be really striking if it were not for the form factor that it would introduce. Contrary to what we know so far, this new Echo would be designed to be placed on the wall.

Basically it would be like taking only the part of the Echo Show screen. Thus, the integration into the wall of the house where we decide to place it would be much more aesthetic and less bulky than what we could achieve right now by placing one of the current Echos with one of those third-party accessories that allow it to be mounted on the wall, whether they are speakers or smart devices with screen.

Regarding technical characteristics, there is not much information, but the possibility that the diagonal of the integrated display be situated between 10 and 13 inches. So, does the idea sound familiar? Exactly, it would be like using a tablet or iPad, solutions that some manufacturers of home automation systems and devices use to centralize the management of their solutions through specific software.

The great advantage here would be to have the ecosystem and compatibility around Alexa. Which would greatly facilitate the use of such a product for users who do not have a home automation installation designed from scratch or who simply incorporate new devices as they appear on the market and attract their attention.

Price and release date of the new Amazon Echo

Regarding details such as price and release date, nothing is clear. It seems that the cost of new Amazon Echo could be around $ 200 or $ 250Which is not bad if it offers better features than the company’s tablets.

Regarding the release date, for now and as a rumor that it is, we will have to be cautious, but it seems that could be launched at the end of the year or early 2022. And this could also come together with a product that has also already been rumored, a smart device that you would place on the bedside table and have the ability to measure the hours and quality of sleep.

We will see what happens, but it is clear that home automation is one of the areas where Amazon can grow the most in terms of hardware sales.
