Amazon Echo Show 5 is the smaller sibling of the Echo Show.

Sometimes 10 inches of a smart display is too big for some of us. That’s why Amazon has just announced the Echo Show 5. With a screen size of 5.5 inches, it might just tickle your fancy. We take a quick look at what it’s all about.

 

Echo Show 5

The Echo Show 5 comes with a display of 5.5″ (960 x 480 resolution) , a 4W speaker and a 1MP camera. The only difference between it and the Echo Show (2nd gen) apart from the size, is that the Echo Show 5 has a built-in lens shutter to cover the camera.

Echo Show’s mini me.

Expect the Echo Show 5 to do everything you could do with Alexa like ask the weather, make appointments, see who’s at the door (with compatible doorbell camera) and control your smart devices.

Built-in lens shutter for privacy.

The Echo Show 5 is priced at USD$89.99 and will be released on June 26, 2019. Two colours available; Charcoal and Sandstone. There’s no shipping to Malaysia but that can always be overcome with freight forwarding services.
