In addition to the wall-mounted Echo and television soundbar, its automotive technology and wearable devices, Amazon cites internal documents and sources familiar with the matter, according to a Bloomberg report on Friday. I am working on an update.
Amazon has the potential to expand its lineup of SmartScreen Echo Show devices. According to the report, the company is planning an Alexa-controlled Echo with a roughly 15-inch display that can be mounted on the wall or placed on a stand. The report states that it acts as a control panel for smart home appliances and can be placed in the kitchen to display recipes and other useful information.
According to Bloomberg, the company is also planning a soundbar for the TV with a front-facing camera that will allow users to make video calls from the TV.
According to the report, other products that may enter the pipeline include a second-generation model of Echo Auto technology and a wide range of wearables beyond the Halo fitness tracker launched last August. .. According to Bloomberg, they’re looking for wearables for kids and older people who can find out when they’ve fallen.
According to Bloomberg, another long-awaited launch, Amazon’s home robot, may be far away. According to reports, the company is speculating that it is working on a robot that can be controlled by voice and can move around the house using its built-in camera. Bloomberg said Amazon has begun testing a prototype version of the device, but the robot has raised internal concerns about its viability.
The report comes as Amazon plans to announce a new device at its September 28 event. Amazon usually hosts hardware events directly at its Seattle headquarters, but as of last year, it also hosts online streaming events. Some of the devices Bloomberg mentioned may be announced at this event, but other devices may be released later or even canceled altogether, the report said.
An Amazon spokesperson said the company did not comment on rumors or speculation.
