Back in March, I informed you that Sonos is dealing with a second-generation Move speaker due for release this year. And now, as spotted by Janko Roettgers, the upcoming portable speaker has actually made its method through the FCC The filing compares with my earlier report and determines the next Sonos hardware item as design S44.
The FCC documents likewise validates one essential upgrade that I discussed in March: the Move (Gen 2) will support Bluetooth and Wi-Fi at the exact same time rather of making you toggle in between them like the initial speaker did (by means of a turn on the back). As an outcome, much like the Roam, Period 100, and Period 300, the next Move will let you play something over Bluetooth and after that relay that audio to the rest of your Sonos system.
There’s very little else to obtain from the filing; Sonos has actually made the typical privacy demand with the FCC to conceal pictures, user handbooks, and other goodies. However this action a minimum of validates that the Move (Gen 2) is getting better. Oh, and it’ll support more robust Wi-Fi 6 connection.
I do not yet understand precisely when the business is preparing to launch it. However I ‘d anticipate a statement prior to completion of summer season; it’s a portable speaker that’s excellent for outside events, after all. And there’s precedent for a brand-new Sonos gizmo to strike the marketplace relatively right after its FCC launching; the Sonos Roam appeared at the FCC one month ahead of the business’s statement Well, I think technically we revealed it initially
The Move (Gen 2) will definitely be easier to utilize thanks to the dual-mode Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. However I’m hoping that’s not all there is to this story; definitely, there will likewise be some audio efficiency enhancements. An upgrade to stereo chauffeurs like the Period 100 would make an already-excellent speaker noise even much better. I likewise hope the Move (Gen 2) will maintain the original’s concentrate on durability; Sonos uses a $69 battery replacement set to assist the music keep playing far, far into the future.
In April, Sonos revealed its very first software application as a service (SaaS) called Sonos Pro The regular monthly membership service supplies organizations with a user friendly control panel for playing lawfully certified music in industrial areas. That was the very first of 4 brand-new item classifications that the business has stated it will get in over the coming years.
