Amazon Introduces All-New Echo Show 5 

Next generation Echo Show 5 delivers deeper bass, faster processing and Matter compatibility – and it’s just A$169 / NZ$199 

Amazon today announced the newest iteration of the much-loved Echo Show 5 will soon be available for Aussie and Kiwi customers. Echo Show 5 is the smallest Alexa-powered Echo smart display with a five-inch screen – perfect for the bedroom or kitchen.

Echo Show 5 combines the utility of Alexa, with the convenience of a compact screen so customers can watch news clips, check their Ring doorbell camera, view shopping lists, follow along with recipes or easily make video calls to friends and family.

The 3rd generation of Echo Show 5 comes with a completely reengineered microphone array and is faster than its predecessors due to its AZ2 Neutral Edge processor. The product also boasts an improved speaker system that delivers clearer sound when listening to music, videos, podcasts or Audible books.

Echo Show 5 also comes with support for Matter, making it easy to connect and control compatible smart home products across various brands, seamlessly integrating into any smart home set up.

As always, Amazon Echo devices are designed with multiple layers of privacy protection. Customers have complete transparency and control over their Alexa experience, from the manual mic/camera off button and built-in camera shutter, to the ability to delete your voice recordings.

Echo Show 5 is designed with sustainability in mind, with its fabric made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarn and aluminium made from 100% recycled aluminium. This device’s packaging is made of 99% wood fibre-based materials from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources.

The all-new Echo Show 5 will be available for online pre-orders from June 19 at Amazon.com.au/echoshow5, and in leading Australian and New Zealand retailers from July 10 for A$169 and NZ$199 in black, white and cloud blue colourways.
