Amazon is holding a surprise hardware event in Seattle today at 10:30AM PT / 1:30PM ET. This is likely when they’ll be announcing the new mid-tier Fire TV pendant model that I revealed earlier this month.
In addition to the new Fire TV that is capable of 4K HDR video playback, we’re expecting them to reveal at least one new Echo device, which will likely be the successor to the original Amazon Echo. It is very unlikely that the flagship Fire TV cube, which comes with far-field microphones and an IR blaster, will be revealed today.
Other products that might be revealed today are a new home security camera and/or an Alexa-powered pair of smart glasses.
