Amazon rolls out new ball-shaped Echo Dots, starting at $50

Amazon has revealed is newest iteration on the Echo Dot, once a puck-shaped companion to the larger Echo smart speaker line and now a spherical smart speaker. The announcement was made during Amazon’s annual Alexa-themed hardware event live-streamed on Thursday afternoon. The new look matches that of the new fourth-generation standard Echo, also announced today.

This is technically also the fourth-generation Dot and not the fifth, as last year’s minor iteration added only an LED display for showing the time, temperature, and other minor information through the fabric covering of the speaker.

The big standout feature this time, however, is a redesign of the entire Echo lineup, turning the puck and cylinder designs of the prior models into small and large orbs with the now-standard fabric covering Amazon began introducing in its later Echo models. Amazon is again selling two models, a cheaper one without a built-in LED display and one $10 more with the display.
