E-commerce giant Amazon is expected to take the wraps of its touch-screen Echo smart assistant today. The speaker — codenamed Knight — will feature a 7-inch touch-screen display and will even receive the ability to make voice and video calls to the Alexa assistant.
A report by Wall Street Journal reads, “Amazon.com Inc. is due to unveil a new Echo speaker with a screen that will incorporate video calling capabilities, according to people familiar with the matter, keeping the online retailer one step ahead of tech rivals in seeking to control smart homes.”
In fact, prolific leakster Evan Blass even tweeted a few images of the device that apparently comes in both, black and white colour variants.
The new Echo device will perform all the functions of a smart ‘style assistant’ and may be priced around $200....
