Amazon announces new 2nd-gen Echo Show
Amazon has announced a new 2nd-generation Echo Show. The new model improves on the last model in nearly every way. It’s much better looking and has a front that is dominated by a large 10.1-inch HD touchscreen. It features premium sound through a pair of side firing speakers behind the display. It’s available to pre-order now for $229.99 in Charcol or Sandstone colors and will arrive on October 11th. Buying 2 at the same time will automatically take $100 off at checkout.
The new Echo Show two 2-inch speakers, a passive bass radiator, and Dolby processing that should make it the best sounding Echo device to date. The screen on the front has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and can be used in conjunction with the 5MP camera for video calls through Alexa or through Skype, which will be added soon.
The Echo Show now essentially doubles as an Echo Plus because the new model now has the same smart home hub capabilities built into the device. This means that it supports Zigbee devices, like Philips Hue bulbs, without needing an additional hub.
