Add Facebook to the growing list of technology firms reportedly interested in building a smart speaker for your home.
Sources reportedly familiar with the social network’s plans tell DigiTimes that the connected gadget is being designed by Facebook’s Building 8 and will feature a sizable 15-inch touchscreen display.
By comparison, Amazon’s Echo Show uses a much smaller 7-inch screen.
The panel, which is said to use in-cell technology, is being supplied by LG Display with the product itself featuring a magnesium aluminum alloy.
Pegatron is manufacturing the device in China and has reportedly already started a small pilot production run.
Unsurprisingly, the device is said to focus more on image display than voice recognition technology although I suspect the latter will also be part of the overall package.
