0

There is a pleasant surprise awaiting Amazon UK and European users today with the release of a brand new range of Amazon Devices. We’ll be covering what is new, what the devices are and when they should be released.

We have got a lot to cover so let’s get to it!

Echo Hub

What is it?

This is an 8-inch touchscreen device that will act as a controller for all of your Amazon-compatible devices. With Echo Hub, achieving a personalized smart home setup has never been easier, and it won’t break the bank. You can set up widgets designed to help you make the most out of your tech. With built-in privacy controls, you have control over what your device sees at all times.

How is it different?

This is not your typical Fire Tablet. Indeed, it’s not a true entertainment tablet at all but something that is dedicated to the smart technology you have around your home. So, don’t expect to be able to watch Netflix on this one. This is the hub for those who have a lot of Amazon Alexa devices already!

Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen)

What is it?

This is the 3rd generation of the popular Amazon Echo Show. This version of the Show has an 8-inch display.

How is it different?

It has a bunch of updated features since the second generation. The speakers now have noise reduction technology, as well as other quality improvements like spatial audio recognition and room acoustic sensing. This is a fancy way of saying that it will be able to tell where it is in a room and adjust the sound accordingly. This means regardless of where you are you’ll get the best sound possible.

It has a glass display, which now goes from edge to edge of the device. This gives it a more premium feel and view. Speaking of viewing, you’ll be able to see the difference in how quickly the new Echo Show 8 flies through tasks with its updated processor!
