The date for Amazon’s fall 2022 hardware launch event has been released. On September 28, the industry titan in retail and smart homes will introduce its newest goods and services. For the virtual, invitation-only event, which begins at 9 AM PT /4 PM GMT, the business has sent out media invites. reports for The Verge.
The information provided in Amazon’s media invitations is sparse. We are unsure of what new products, functions, and services the corporation will introduce. No leaks have occurred either. However, based on its previous fall-related activities and its current range of smart home products, we can still make some educated judgments.
Amazon introduced a number of new goods and services in 2017 including the Alexa-enabled smart thermostat, Halo View fitness band, Amazon Glow, Ring Always Home Cam, Ring Alarm Pro, and the Echo Show smart display. This year, several of these gadgets might receive updates. Additionally, new Echo smart speakers are anticipated the following week. The previous year, none existed. The Echo (4th Gen), the newest model in the lineup, was released in 2020.
Advertisement The Verge points out that Amazon has not yet finalized the acquisition of iRobot, the company that makes the Roomba robotic cleaner. The Federal Trade Commission is presently investigating the acquisition. So it’s possible that the corporation won’t make any statements regarding its potential new product category, robot vacuums. If there are any, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Amazon might still experience some impact from the Google Fall Event. Google’s next-generation Nest smart home gadgets might lose some ground to Amazon’s debut of new Echo and Ring products on September 28. On Thursday, October 6, the latter is slated to hold its fall hardware event. The search engine giant will also introduce new Nest goods during the event in addition to the smartphones from the Pixel 7 series and the original Pixel Watch. The Nest Wifi Pro with Wi-Fi 6E support and a wired Nest Doorbell are two likely contenders to leave Google’s door in the next few weeks. Maybe there are more. We’ll soon find out.
In contrast to Amazon, Google is allowing a small number of invited media members to attend its debut event in person. Additionally, YouTube will be hosting a live feed of the event. Amazon, meanwhile, restricts access to its virtual event to the invited reporters exclusively. Unless you have been invited, you cannot watch it live. But you can be sure that here at Android Headlines, we will have complete coverage of all the announcements from both events.
