Amazon has introduced a new Amazon Echo Show with a significantly larger screen.

The device now features a  “high resolution” 10-inch HD display with an 8-mic array.

The speakers have also been improved, with dual, side-firing 2” Neodymium drivers, a passive bass radiator and Dolby processing to deliver expansive stereo sound with deep, powerful lows and crisp highs.

Amazon also says the Echo Show’s UI now has a more thoughtful design, with support for Amazon’s Silk browser and Firefox. It will also support Amazon’s Smart Home Hub and Skype video calling.

The device will, however, have the same $229 starting price, with pre-orders starting today and shipments starting next month.

The Amazon Echo Show (second generation) comes bundled with a free Philips Hue smart bulb and will release on October 11th for $229.99. Pre-order it at Amazon here.
