From the Echo Dot to the Echo Show, Amazon currently offers 12 Echo smart speakers in India. While all these speakers offer different features and capabilities, there is one thing in common between all of them – the lack of portability. All Echo devices need a dedicated switch, and they work only when plugged into a power switch.
The Echo Input Portable speaker comes with a 4,800 mAh battery, which Amazon claims can last for 10 hours on playback and 11 hours on standby. The smart speaker comes with a USB 2.0 port for charging.
The Echo Input Portable comes with 360-degree audio and thus, lets users access Alexa from anywhere in the room using the same far-field voice recognition.
The device is built with multiple layers of privacy controls, including a microphone off button that electronically disconnects the microphones. Users can also view, hear, and delete your voice recordings at Alexa Privacy Settings or in the Alexa app at any time.
Amazon Echo Input Portable edition speaker will be available to pre-order on Amazon India starting today 4 December. The smart speaker will start shipping on 18 December. While the original retail price of the speaker has been announced at Rs 5,999. For a limited time period, Amazon is offering an introductory price of Rs 4,999.
