Amazon is working on some sort of Echo device that would mount to a wall like a TV, according to a new report.
Mark Gurman, writing for Bloomberg, says that Amazon’s La126 hardware division is already hard at work creating a device that would be a “digital command center, showing users upcoming calendar events, controlling accessories like lights and locks, and playing music and video.”
The whole thing would be powered by Alexa, with video calling and other features we’re already familiar with also thrown in.
Sizes and prices haven’t yet been confirmed, although a starting price of around $200 looks likely.
Amazon is considering multiple variations, with screens of either 10 or 13 inches in size. A 10-inch display would be on par with the current Echo Show, while a 13-inch model would be Amazon’s largest device with a display. The company plans to launch it either at the end of this year or the end of 2022, the people said. Prices ranging from $200 to $250 have been discussed internally, though the plans are still early and could change or be scrapped altogether. An Amazon spokeswoman declined to comment.
Bloomberg’s Gurman does also point out that it’s possible the project could be scraped altogether, considering how early into its development it appears to be.
