Amazon is hosting an event next week to share news about its latest devices and services, potentially including additions to its Ring, Fire TV and Echo lines. The invite-only virtual event will take place Sept. 28. 

Amazon's invitation on Tuesday didn't include many details, saying simply the company will share "news about our latest Amazon devices, features and services" at the event. 

The online retail giant held an event on the same day last year, where it unveiled the Echo Show 15, the Amazon Glow for kids and the Halo View fitness tracker. The company also showed off the Ring Alarm Pro home security system and a flying Always Home Cam drone to watch your home when you're away. 

At the event last year, we also got a look at Astro, the company's ambitious robot assistant

Amazon is gearing up for a potentially busy last few months of the year. In addition to this hardware and services event, Amazon is rumored to be holding a second Prime Day-like sale in October, though the event hasn't been confirmed. That rumored sale would be in addition to the company's usual Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals ahead of the holidays.
