Amazon has surprisingly revamped its cheapest display smart speakers: the Echo Show 5 Y Echo Show 8. In both cases we now have models of second generation, which introduce multiple improvements. In addition, we also find the Echo Show 5 Kids, designed specifically for children, but which will not be in Spain at the moment. We go with all its news.
The Echo Show have revolutionized the way of interacting with Alexa at home, since at a glance we can get more information, as well as make video calls with the built-in camera. The camera has been one of the aspects that have improved, as Amazon claims that users are increasingly making video calls using these speakers, as well as using the augmented reality functions more.
Echo Show 8: better sound and 13 MP camera
The Echo Show 8 has a HD display, and now equip a powerful 13 MP camera with integrated shutter. It also has a new 8-core processor, and stereo speakers to offer great power and quality. Although the calls are in Full HD, the 13 MP is useful because the camera will be able to follow us if we move, as well as zoom if we move away. Thanks to this, we will always be focused on the image. The loudspeaker is available in anthracite gray and white.
Echo Show 5 – Double MP Camera
In the case of Echo Show 5, we have a screen of 5.5 inch. Now we also have a new color available: navy blue, which adds to the anthracite gray and white that we already found. The Echo Show 5 camera has been improved, and now has 2 MP, allowing you to enjoy much clearer calls.
In the Echo Show we can continue to see multimedia content, such as Prime Video or Netflix, as well as managing the music of applications such as Amazon Music and Spotify, obtaining weather or news information, and much more. In addition, we can see the latest photos synchronized with the Amazon cloud.
We also find a new Echo Show 5 Kids, designed specifically for children. This speakerphone with screen allows you to customize the background with content geared towards children, as well as allowing you to make video calls with previously assigned contacts. There is also a lot of educational and entertainment content, such as books, music, games, etc. Its price is $ 94.99, and for now it will not be in Spain.
