Amazon’s hardware launch event is less than an hour away and we’re already seeing images of some upcoming products making their way around the web ahead of time. Leakers posted images of the alleged devices on Twitter, including an alleged Amazon Fire TV, a new Kindle that ships with a stylus, and a possible look at the Echo Auto 2.
One leaker, SnoopyTech, claims that Amazon will release a new Kindle called the “Scribe,” which will allow users to annotate directly on the screen with a supported stylus, making the device useful for more than just reading. The images shared by SnoopyTech indicate that users can access a note-taking interface that allows them to erase text and undo or redo anything they’ve just written.
According to SnoopyTech, the device has a 10.2-inch screen along with 300ppi. If Amazon launches the device at today’s event, it would be about two weeks after the company released an updated $99.99 Kindle with a USB-C port and a 300ppi display.
In addition to the new Kindle, SnoopyTech also offered a potential look at a new Fire TV cube, which serves as an all-in-one Alexa smart speaker and Fire TV streaming device, as well as a voice remote that lets you control your TV. The device hasn’t been updated since 2019, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Amazon decides to launch a new version.
The images of the back of the device show ports for HDMI input and output, an IR extender, USB and Ethernet. SnoopyTech also hints that the new Amazon Fire TV could support Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service.
Finally, Dave Zatz from ZaztNot Funny shared images that allegedly show the Echo Auto 2, the second generation of the automatic device that puts Alexa in your car. From the images, it looks like users will be able to mount the Echo Auto 2 directly to their dashboard.
Amazon’s event is today at noon ET, so we won’t have to wait long to see if these rumors come true.
