Smart speaker Amazon Echo of the second generation will stand out more high-quality sound to compete with Apple HomePod
As you know, recently Apple introduced the smart speaker system HomePod. Unlike most similar devices, the new Apple in the first place is positioned in an acoustic system.
If you believe the new rumors, the same principle will be created as intelligent Amazon Echo 2. A new speaker will be more compact than the current version, but it should sound better through the use of a larger number of emitters. Also most of the exterior is covered in cloth.
In addition, the source talks about the improvement of the microphones, although now they are seven pieces. When exactly will appear new, unknown, but according to the current year.
In General, this move by Amazon is quite logical, since from the point of view of the capabilities of the Alexa is still a cut above any other voice assistant in this segment, so the company should just improve the quality of the sound to Echo more suited to the role of the acoustic system.
