Amazon is working on a new Echo
Amazon tried to make many products, but not all of them succeed at all. The company actually failed a lot of times with their hardwares. However, their Echo speaker was a success. It was basically a black cylinder that you could put in your home. Then, you would have a personal assistant, ready to help you all the time. As it got even more popular, they announced cheaper versions. Nevertheless, it seems like they are working on a new Echo speaker, but this time, we are going to see even a higher end model.
Bloomberg reports that Amazon is currently working on a new Echo speaker. So far, we don’t know if it will replace the normal Echo, but the chances are that it will be placed above the current Echo speakers. If that is true, then the users would have another choice when buying an Echo speaker. However, it will be differ than all the current models as it will supposedly have a touchscreen.
Running on Amazon’s FireOS, it will provide another way of interacting with the device. This way, when you need an answer for your question ( let’s say you want to learn the weather ), you can either ask with your voice or use the touch screen if you are not the position to use your voice.
However, it will cost more than the current Echo, which has a price tag of $180.
