First look! Amazon Echo with touch screen photos leaked

Amazon added the Echo Look to their Alexa device line up just a few short weeks ago. Then they secured a patent for an on-demand apparel manufacturing system. These two inventions could change the fashion and clothing retail business as we know it.

As if they weren’t already busy enough, we hear Amazon is working on another new invention., a news and commentary site for the Amazon Fire TV, claims to have found photos of Amazon’s next Alexa-enabled device.

According to the site, an Echo touchscreen is rumored to be released later on this month. The source also said that its codename is “Knight” and it is expected to cost between $200 and $300.

AFTVnews posted this low-res photo of the touchscreen device to their twitter account.

Luckily, VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass posted a high-definition photo.

According to Blass, it will also be available in white.

According to the leak, the screen will be 7 inches wide and the speakers will be better than the current Amazon Echo. The small circle above the screen appears to be a camera, which means phone and video calling could be a new feature that further sets this device apart from its predecessor.

What do you think of the design? Let me know in the comments section below.
