Amazon announced new hardware on the morning of September 25th. In addition to the Echo Dot with Clock smart speaker with a built-in clock, the Echo itself has also been redesigned. The content is centered on sound improvements.
The new version introduces the sound quality improvements introduced with Echo Plus, but it probably doesn’t incorporate Plus’s hub functionality, and this is the difference between the two products. New audio hardware includes a neodymium driver, increasing the volume and improving mid-range acoustic characteristics.
The new Echo will be fitted with new fabric covers in multiple colors. Like the new Echo Dot with Clock, bookings will begin in the US today. The price is $ 99 (about 11,000 yen), the same as the previous model.
