Amazon to Host Hardware Event on Sept. 25, Expected to Update and Launch New Devices
It seems Amazon has been quietly creating some new devices for their customers and is ready to launch. According to Engadget, the company sent out invitations for a device and service-related event, taking place on Sept. 25th. While they didn’t reveal what kinds of devices they’ll be releasing, it is safe to assume we may get updated versions of longstanding product such as the echo as well as brand new gadgets.
Just last week, Amazon announced a major update to their Fire TV Cube device, which combines a Fire TV and Echo device all-in-one. The updated Fire TV Cube now sports a hexa-core processor — which according to Amazon, is more than twice as fast as the original Fire TV Cube. The device can stream 4K UHD at 60 FPS, with support for HDR, HRD10+, Dolby Vision, as well as Dolby Atmos audio.
Amazon also launched a host of new devices, announcing a lineup of more than 15 new Fire TV Edition products for customers around the globe, including the world’s first Fire TV Edition smart TV with built-in far-field voice control, the first OLED Fire TV Edition smart TV, and the first-ever Fire TV Edition soundbar.
The company joined forces with TV brands and manufactures to bring new Fire TV devices across Europe and North America. Among the new devices were the Fire TV Edition Smart TVs with Dixons Carphone, Fire TV Edition Smart TVs with MediaMarktSaturn, Fire TV Edition Smart TVs with Grundig and the Fire TV Edition Soundbar with Anker Innovations.
