Amazon is working on an Echo speaker with better sound quality than the speakers that the company has released so far. Bloomberg claims that. The manufacturer must be able to compete better with Google, Sonos and Apple.
The prototypes developed by Amazon concern cylindrical models that are wider than existing Echoes and that contain at least four tweeters, claims Bloomberg , which relies on information from sources familiar with Amazon’s plans. Sometime next year, the high-end speakers should appear in the Echo series, but Bloomberg is holding back and writing that Amazon may decide not to pursue the plans. Later this year, the existing Echo line will in any case receive an update with minor improvements, according to the site.
The message follows rumors from earlier this year that Amazon is working on a music service with higher quality audio than its existing Prime Music service. With this, the company would compete with Tidal and Deezer, among others. With a high-end speaker, Amazon would compete with the Sonos One, Apple Homepod and Google Home Max. These distinguish themselves from other smart speakers by a relatively good sound quality. In September last year, Amazon already announced a subwoofer for the Echo for users who want better sound quality.
Bloomberg also writes about the home robot that Amazon is also working on, according to earlier rumors . This would get wheels and can be operated with the Alexa speech assistant. Few details are known about this robot, but recently Amazon would have put more technicians on the project called Vesta.
