Amazon has introduced its all-new line-up of Echo devices comprising of Echo Dot, Echo Dot with Clock & Echo with new designs, enhanced audio, and more powerful hardware.
The next-generation Echo combines the features of Echo and Echo Plus into a single device at the same affordable Echo price. Its fabric finish design looks elegant with a bright LED light ring at the base of the sphere that reflects off of surfaces for added visibility. The new Echo also sounds significantly better with a 3.0-inch woofer, dual-firing tweeters, and Dolby processing that delivers stereo sound with clear highs, dynamic-mids, and deep bass. As with Echo Studio, the new Echo automatically senses the acoustics of your space and fine-tunes audio playback—just ask to listen to your favorite music and the rich, detailed sound will automatically adapt to your room. For the first time, Echo comes with a built-in Zigbee smart home hub and supports Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) that helps conserve energy.
