Amazon at its hardware event has announced a pool of new smart devices under Echo series and more. The obvious upgrade is the new 3rd-gen Echo Smart speaker which has a wealth of new features and specifications over its predecessor. The particular upgrade that Amazon highlights, is the sound quality which is now upgraded with the help of Neodymium drivers.
This basically follows the same audio architecture which is also available with the Echo Plus. In addition to the drives, there is 3-inch woofer and increased back volume so the bass feels stronger and the mids and highs are clearer.
The fabric-covered design is familiar on the 3rd-gen Echo smart speaker and according to Amazon hardware VP Dave Limp, the Echo offers a great way for listing to Amazon Music HD, the new lossless-quality streaming tier of the company’s subscription music service.
The all-new 3rd-gen smart speaker comes in Twilight Blue as well, in addition to Charcoal, Sandstone, and Heather Gray color options. The 2019 Echo smart speaker costs the same $99.99 as before and the preorders will begin from today.
