Amazon Echo Look news - release date, price and features

In the US Amazon has announced the Echo Look, a hands-free camera and style assistant. Is it coming to the UK? Read the latest news and rumours on the Echo Look features, price and release date.

In March it came to light that a new Amazon device was on the horizon when an image popped up on Amazon servers. Thought to be a security camera, turns out it's actually the Echo Look. Also see: Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot.

What is the Echo Look?
As described in the video at the top of this page, the Echo Look is a new model in the Amazon Echo family that supports the Alexa digital assistant. A hands-free camera and style assistant, the Echo Look can ensure you are always looking at your best.

Echo Look can take full-length selfies and video at request, allowing you to show off your wardrobe to your heart's content, or for personal use quickly and easily scroll through your outfits and pick out one to wear. The depth-sensing camera has built in LED lighting and computer vision-based background blur.

A dedicated companion app lets you see yourself from every angle, while Style Check can use a combination of machine learning and advice from fashionistas to let you know which outfit looks best.

Alexa is also able to serve up style recommendations and will become smarter over time.

With Alexa built in, the Echo Look is also able to do all the things you expect from the Echo family: a built-in speaker lets you listen to the news, weather, music and more, plus use apps to control smart home devices.

When is the Echo Look release date?
The Echo Look is already available to buy online in the US direct from Amazon, but is currently available through invitation only. You can request an invitation by clicking the request invitation button on this web page.

Amazon has not revealed why it has chosen to restrict purchase to invitation only, though it's possible it's testing the waters.

Neither has it confirmed whether or not the Echo Look will make its way to the UK, and we suspect that decision will be very much based on its success in the US. We waited a full year after it launched in the US to get our hands on the original Amazon Echo, so we could see a similar deal here.

How much does the Echo Look cost?
In the US the Amazon Echo costs $199.99, meaning its $20 more expensive than the standard Echo.

If and when it makes its way to the UK, we'd expect to see the Echo Look retail for around £169.

We'll update this article when we know more.

We discussed the Echo Look in our podcast here:

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
