Around this time last year, Amazon held a surprise hardware announcement event where they announced the Fire TV 3 (pendant), the Echo 2, the Echo Spot, the Echo Plus, and several other new devices. According to The Verge, they’re holding a similar event today at 10 am PT.
We’re expecting to see the announcement of a new Echo Dot that leaked earlier this year. There will likely be a new full-sized Echo as well. Sources told CNBC that at least eight new Alexa devices will be announced.
Pocket-lint has uncovered the rumored new Echo Subwoofer on Amazon’s UK site, so we can certainly expect that to be announced today as well. There are rumors of a new Alexa-enabled amplifier, receiver, and even a microwave.
As far as Fire TV devices go, Amazon might announce the Fire TV DVR device that is reportedly in the works. There haven’t been any leaks or solid rumors of new Fire TV hardware in the works, but recent fluctuations in Fire TV 3 supplies suggest that it might soon be replaced, so we might get a new Fire TV device announced today.
I’ll be covering all the news as its announced.
