We’re hearing that Amazon is launching its long-rumored touchscreen Echo voice assistant device as early as Tuesday morning. The news was originally reported by The Wall Street Journal.
Images of the device were leaked last week by Evan Blass:
This device will have a focus on shopping, we hear, making it easier for people to buy things from Amazon with your voice — tell the Alexa virtual assistant what you’d like to buy, and options will appear on the screen. It will also have the ability to make and receive both phone and video calls, though it may have limited capabilities on that front at first.
Amazon declined to comment.
