Amazon Echo Sub and Smart Plug leak: Two new Alexa-powered devices
- Leaked Amazon sales listings appear to detail two new Amazon Alexa powered devices: the Amazon Echo Sub and Amazon Smart Plug.
- The listing suggests the Echo Sub can be paired with two Echo devices to create a stereo setup.
- It seems like the Smart Plug will be used to control non-smart devices by voice or remotely via the Alexa app.
Amazon appears to have leaked info about two of its new Alexa powered devices on the U.K. Amazon website. The product pages, which were spotted by Pocket-Lint before Amazon took them down (via Engadget), seem to show details of the Echo Sub subwoofer and the Amazon Smart Plug.
According to the product description, the Amazon Echo Sub is a 110W 6-inch subwoofer. The description says that you will be able to pair the subwoofer wirelessly with two compatible Echo devices to get a stereo sound setup. This is something that has previously been impossible to do with Echo devices. The listing suggests the Echo Sub will cost 75 pounds, which is around $98.
The smart plug wasn’t mentioned in the previous leak about Amazon’s plans for new Alexa-powered devices. According to the product description, it will allow users to control any electrical socket with their voice. The description also says the plug can also be used to set up schedules for appliances and devices with the Alexa App.
The leaked page says the plug will cost 95 pounds, which is around $125. However, Pocket-Lint points out that this is far more expensive than most smart plugs so the listed price may be incorrect. This also throws into doubt the price of the Echo Sub (though 75 pounds is more plausible)
According to Pocket-Lint, both devices will be available on October 11, although we can’t see that on the screenshots. While it seems fairly likely that the info listed — if not the price — is accurate, until Amazon officially unveils the products, we won’t know for sure.
