Smart displays are still a new product category, combining the design and interfaces of tablets with the ease-of-use and always-on nature of smart speakers. Amazon updated its Echo Show 8 smart display earlier this year with a few hardware improvements, and now it is on sale for $99.99. That’s a discount of $30 from the usual price, and it matches the previous low prices we’ve seen on Amazon’s online store.
The Echo Show 8 is equipped with an 8-inch 1280×800 touchscreen, two 2″ speakers, and various sensors. The main selling point (and the primary upgrade from the original Echo Show 8) is the 13MP front-facing camera with auto-framing, which can be used for video calls on Skype, Zoom, Alexa, and other services. You can also use the Echo Show 8 as a remote security camera, and the optional (paid) Alexa Guard Plus subscription gives you sound alerts and other similar features.
