Amazon seems to have some Google Property Mini envy judging by this first purported leak of the retail giant’s upcoming Amazon Echo Dot by French shops Numerama and FrAndroid.
Normally, the pics are impossibly blurry, which is adequate to instantly give pause. Nevertheless, markedly accurate Amazon merchandise leak site AFTVNews has confirmed the pics as effectively, claiming confidence that they’re the serious deal.
The two of the French shops have cited the codename ‘Donut’ for the merchandise, very likely talking to anonymous sources.
The pics (alternatively inadequately) depict a speaker that seems to be a bit bigger than the 2nd era Amazon Echo Dot, applying an lovely Kirby amiibo toy for scale. The speaker seems to comprise all of the identical buttons and controls as just before, albeit with five microphones to the current model’s seven.
But, the most crucial takeaway here is that the gadget is now wrapped in a sheet of mesh cloth, a great deal like the Google Property Mini speaker.
While it’s currently not known why the new Echo Dot has adopted this structure outside of catching up to the unique Amazon Echo redesign, cloth mesh is an very well known masking for speaker motorists. Maybe Amazon has upgraded the 360-diploma audio capabilities of the merchandise, as FrAndroid’s sources assert.
Sadly, there is no additional details pertaining to the merchandise from this purported leak but, provided that the gadget is supposedly currently in the fingers of workforce or testers, we can not be that considerably off from a release.
