Amazon announced a new hardware product in the fall of 2018. The new product focuses on the use of Alexa, the function of its artificial intelligence secretary. In addition to the AI speaker eco-series, it also features cameras, smart outlets, microwave ovens, and even wall clocks.
First is the third generation Echo Dot. It is the entry model of eco series. It has a design that surrounds the cylindrical side with a speaker. It is also one of the features that dramatically improves the sound quality by increasing the volume by 70%. The price is $ 49.99.
Echo Auto is the Alexa terminal for cars. Assuming that it is written on the car dashboard, it takes a form that gives a sense of stability. If you already have a Alexa-enabled device in your home, you can also issue a command to your in-house Alexa device.
Equipped with eight microphones, the sound can be reliably detected even when there is noise around. In conjunction with the Alexa app installed on the smartphone, you can output audio to the in-vehicle system via Bluetooth and 3.5mm audio jack. The power supply supports both 12V cigar jack and USB. The price is $ 49.99.
Next is the second generation echo show. The product retains the concept of supporting display and Alexa simultaneously. The second-generation EcoShore has adopted a bezelless design to further expand its display space. The width increased by 6 cm, but the screen size increased from 7 inches to 10 inches. The front-facing speakers can be adjusted so that they extend from the left and the right, and the sound expansion or stereo effect may be further increased. I changed the material on the back with fabric. The price is $ 230.
In the case of the second-generation Echo Plus, it’s a rather chunky design and features a 360-degree side speaker, unlike the first generation that emphasized slimness. It has a 3-inch subwoofer and a 0.8-inch tweeter.

The Echo Input also focuses on being slim enough to be installed anywhere in the room, as well as being affordable. The echo input is thought to be the Amazon version of chrome cast audio by Google.
