The company plans to release the new Echo by next year, according to people familiar with the product.
This high-quality Echo packs more audio components into a wider frame than prior models, reports Bloomberg, yet it should still retain its signature cylindrical shape. Bloomberg said the robot isn't ready to launch this year as originally planned.
Both devices are being developed by Amazon Lab126, a research and development arm based in Sunnyvale, California. The organization's equipment invasion keeps clients connected to its biological system - purchasing items from Amazon.com and utilizing administrations like Prime Video and Prime Music. They've managed to carve themselves out a niche bit of the smart speaker market, but now Amazon wants in on the action, with the retail giant reportedly set to launch a high-end Amazon Echo speaker by next year.
Amazon's new Echo device could come in response to the growing competition from the likes of Google, Sonos One, Apple and more. However, in spite of Amazon's efforts to build the highest market share, Google is still taking lead with around 31% share. Apple's HomePod hasn't sold as well as Cupertino had hoped, recently prompting the company to lower its price. Amazon may have a much more interesting announcement up its sleeve in the near future, if a new report holds any water.
As of now there no further details about Amazon's home robot, but there is a chance the company will reveal some details of it in September, when it usually hosts a big product reveal event at its Seattle headquarters. Amazon's home robot can be controlled by voice and uses built-in cameras. The Echo range will also receive minor updates this fall, says Gurman's sources.

Not just that, Bloomberg also reported that Amazon has ramped up work on a home robot named Vesta.
It's unclear what errands the Amazon robot may perform. Alexa is about the waist-high, navigate with the help of an array of computer vision cameras and also responds to voice commands. "In an internal demonstration, an engineer summoned the machine with his voice", Bloomberg reports.
