When Amazon introduced the second-gen Echo Show display last year, it was a huge upgrade over the original, with a built-in browser, better sound and more video options than before. Just months later , however, and Amazon has released a new model called the Echo Show 5 (In case that's confusing

The Echo Show 8 is the middle smart display in the Show lineup. It's larger than the Echo Show 5, with an 8-inch display, and keeps the privacy-focused features around the camera: There's a physical slider that can go in front of the camera lens, plus the microphones and camera can be electronically disconnected with the tap of a button.

Amazon unveils a portable battery-powered Echo .
Amazon hasn't built a portable Echo device since the little-loved Tap, but that situation has now changed. The retail giant has unveiled the Echo Input (Portable Smart Speaker Edition) exclusively for the Indian market. It has 360-degree sound and comes with a 4800mAh battery that powers it for 10 hours of continuous music playback and 11 hours of standby life. Unlike the dongle-like Echo Input, this model doesn't let you use Alexa with a dumb speaker. Rather, Amazon sees it as a way to bring Alexa with you. "Portability has been one of the most requested features in India," Amazon devices VP Miriam Daniel told TechCrunch.
