Amazon is already working on a radical new version of its latest product
Unveiled more than four months back and put up for pre-order less than a couple of weeks ago ahead of an actual commercial debut on February 25, the third-gen Echo Show 10 is arguably Amazon’s most ambitious smart home device yet.
In order to pull off a wall-friendly design, Amazon will obviously need to make its next-gen high-end smart display considerably thinner than the latest Echo Show 10 variant, which measures 251 x 230 x 172mm while tipping the scales at more than 2.5 kilograms (90.3 ounces).
Interestingly, the company is purportedly undecided between sticking to a “traditional” 10-inch screen size and going all the way up to 13 inches. The latter option would naturally allow Amazon to more easily differentiate this wall-mounted model from existing (and possibly, future) Echo Show 10 versions designed to accompany you in your kitchen, living room, or even bedroom.
What’s pretty much etched in stone is that Amazon wants to bill this bad boy as an all-purpose “digital command center” for your home, including everything from Alexa voice assistance (duh) to a camera and built-in microphones for video conferencing, audio and video content playing, and of course, complete control over compatible accessories like smart locks and lights.
Granted, that doesn’t sound very different from what the Echo Show 10 and 8 can already do, but it’s definitely interesting to hear Amazon is exploring even more form factors for its extremely popular and versatile smart home products.
