Amazon Reveals New Alexa Devices At Its Hardware 2019 Event

Amazon unveiled more than a dozen new Alexa-enabled products at the annual Amazon Hardware event in Seattle on September 26. The list of products include a wide range of Alexa featured products, from Echo Loop to an oven.

A large number of home products and hardware devices are sold on Amazon at a daily basis. However, they did not disclosed the amount of total company revenue. Amazon hardware chief, Dave Limp said in a CNBC report:

"We try to price our products effectively at about what they cost to make. We think that’s very aligned with customers, we don’t make a lot of money on them, we don’t lose a lot of money on them, but what we try to do is then make money both for us and developers when customers use the products, not just when they buy them".

Here's a list of everything Amazon has announced at the event:

Amazon Echo Studio with s5 speakers:

Amazon announced a whole new update to the company Echo line with its Alexa powered home products.

There is a 1MP front camera and two 2 inch speakers for video calling and music. There is also a hardware slider that can cover the camera and disable the microphones for privacy.

The Echo Show 8 is reportedly on pre-order now and will be available on November 21.
