If you’ve been following a reviews of Sonos speakers over a years, you’ll know that historically we’ve been flattering impressed. Indeed, a code is still tip of a beam to a best multi-room speakers.
Where Sonos isn’t represented is on a list of a best Bluetooth speakers, and that’s for one elementary reason: a association hasn’t done a unstable speaker. But that looks set to change, as cinema of a new device have leaked, around German site WinFuture.
Dubbed a Sonos Move, a leaked selling images give a really transparent demeanour during a kind of thing we can expect.
It seems a hoop is indeed built into a behind of a device, permitting a Sonos Move to be carried giveaway of a bottom hire and creation it truly portable. You’ll note there are charging points along a bottom, suggesting it charges when docked, though there’s also a USB-C pier above there, if we need some additional extract for prolonged days during a beach.
While these are a initial transparent leaks of what a Sonos Move will demeanour like, a few changed nuggets of information had already leaked. A source informed with a device’s functionality formerly confided in The Verge that a Move has a symbol that switches between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi mode, and is bigger and wider than a Sonos One.
Crucially, a orator will offer support for both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa – nonetheless not in Bluetooth mode when a source was asked. Bluetooth mode also prevents a orator from being used around a Sonos app, working instead like a normal Bluetooth speaker: we span and play.
No word nonetheless about a battery life, waterproof rating or a price, though if selling images like a above are legitimate, afterwards it’s a good gamble that Sonos is gearing adult for an approaching reveal. Given a association is hosting a press eventuality on Aug 26, we can’t suppose we’ll have too prolonged to wait to fill in these gaps.
