Earlier this year,, a wall-mountable smart display and the largest yet at 15.6 inches. Today, for the Echo Show 15 are live.
The Echo Show 15 can sit on your countertop like all the previous Echo Show models, but it can also do something those others can't -- live on your wall. Wall-mounting equipment will be included with the Echo Show 15, while stand accessories will be sold separately.
You can mount the 15.6-inch, 1080p HD display horizontally or vertically. It has a microphone, front-facing camera and side-firing speakers. The camera has a physical shutter, and there's a familiar mute button for turning off the mic. It's only available in a black frame.
The Echo Show 15 is powered by Amazon's AZ2 chip, giving the Echo Show 15 computer vision processing capabilities. That enables, an opt-in facial recognition feature that lets Alexa show you personalized recommendations, calendars, to-do lists and more when your face is captured by the camera. The chip processes data locally, so that data doesn't go to the cloud.
The Echo Show 15 comes with new features like customizable widgets and upcoming custom sound detection. You'll also get features we've seen on previous smart displays from Amazon, like, a security service that makes use of smart speakers to monitor for sounds and alarm tones. The $250 smart display will begin shipping to customers Dec. 9.
