It looks like Sonos plans to announce a new wireless speaker. And, thanks to at least one Target store, that might happen sooner rather then later.

The Sonos Play:1 is on store shelves in at least one Target store, a leaked image published on The Verge Wednesday has revealed. The person who snapped the photo showed that both a white and black version are available for $199.99. The speaker comes with a single speaker, unlike the Play:3 and Play:5, which have three speakers and five speakers, respectively.

Sonos made a name for itself in the home audio space by allowing customers to add as many speakers as they want to a wireless home system for playing music and other digital audio. The Sonos Play:1 will apparently connect into such a setup.

The interesting thing about the Sonos Play:1 leak, however, is that the audio company has yet to actually announce the device. Exactly why the speaker is on store shelves right now is unknown.
