- Amazon is holding a Hardware event over at their Seattle headquarters.
- According to rumors and reports, the company may be in line to introduce 8 new Alexa-powered devices.
- We are also expecting to see upgrades to Amazon existing line of Echo devices and Fire TV hardware.
The pre-holiday season is upon us, and we all know what that means - companies will be launching all their latest hardware. Tech giants such as Google, Apple, and Microsoft are all known to announce their latest tech during this time. And now it seems that Amazon has also joined the party.
The e-commerce giant has just announced a big hardware event over at their Seattle headquarters. This is turning out to be similar to last year when Amazon held an event to unveil their new Echo lineup with Spot, Button, and the new Fire TV.
Techcrunch is currently over at Amazon’s headquarters ready to cover the news as it breaks. According to their intel, it seems that the event will be centered around Alexa, the Echo line up, and Fire TV. To further solidify the speculation, CNBC has also recently reported about Amazon’s plans to introduce 8 new Alexa-enabled devices - including Alexa-powered microwave.
Besides this, a lot of Amazon products has been long overdue for an upgrade to the next iteration. This includes the likes of the Echo Show and the Echo Dot. Rumors are also in about a HomePod-Style competitor for Amazon. All these products might as well surface at the event.
It seems that the company will be pushing in a new line-up of devices that will highly impact the IoT market. Furthermore, with all these new hardware, the company will come in direct competition with many of their third-party hardware partners like Sonos, Garmin, and GE. This means Amazon’s current methodology of working will see a drastic change in the near future.
