Smart devices can take a variety of forms, and some of the most recognized product formats are smart speakers. Back in 2018, Amazon introduced the Amazon Fire TV Cube, which merged the USP of smart speakers with a streaming set-top USX product.
Essentially, you can have access to Alexa’s hands-free have access and get all the features of an Amazon Fire TV streaming stick or dongle. Three years later, Amazon may consider bringing this product to India.
According to Ishan Agarwal’s leak, the Amazon Fire TV Cube will be launched in India this week in its second pay generation format. The product is expected to cost around INR 10,000, sold in the USA at 119.99 and the price will be higher for imported products in India.
These are not really competitive products at this price point or any other price point, but The production experience will seem expensive unless consumers are already married to the Alexa ecosystem.
The Fire TV Cube in India will come with the new Fire TV UI, which is set to launch earlier this year, as well as the new Alexa Remote. No official announcement has been made by Amazon on this yet, but if this leak is true, we should expect to hear from them soon.
The Amazon Fire TV Cube combines the features of the Fire TV Stick with eco-smart speakers, allowing users to control their TVs and other smart devices using their voice through Alexa. The device also comes with support for Dolby Vision and 4K UHD content, as well as HDR10 + and Dolby Atmos audio Dio. Other features include Wi-Fi Memo, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, IR sensors, HDMI, and micro USB ports.
The new Alexa Remote features more quick access buttons for Alexa as well as other TV apps such as Prime Video, Prime Music, and Netflix. Speaking of the new Fire TV UI, it has a redesigned home screen with more emphasis on search, new navigation menus, and a personal streaming profile for multi-person homes.
