Amazon has finally launched the Echo Flex smart speaker in India which has a built-in Alexa. Originally it was announced in late September, but now it is up for pre-orders. This device can be directly plugged into a normal wall socket to get the power.
Control lights, plugs and other compatible smart home devices from Wipro, Syska, TP-Link and more. Users can also charge their phone with the built-in USB-A port. It also has a tiny speaker, far-field mics, two buttons up-front and an LED light.
“Our customers are looking for more options on where they can place Echo devices across their homes. We heard them. With its compact form, Echo Flex can be plugged in directly into an electrical socket to provide all functionalities of an Echo device”.
– Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices
The device comes with a price tag of Rs. 2,999 and is available for preorder. Right now Amazon is offering a Wipro 9W Smart LED Bulb worth Rs 609 with the all-new Echo Flex smart speaker. Also, there is an option to choose only the Echo Flex smart speaker without the smart LED bulb. In both cases, the shipment will start on 10th December.
