Found by AFTVNews, the low-resolution image apparently shows the new Echo with a built-in touchscreen – rumored to be 7-inches.

The screen is apparently angled slightly upward so it can be used while standing over it. There also seems to be a built-in camera according to the original report:

Above the screen is a slightly lighter circle that looks to be a camera. Numerous rumors have been floating around that Amazon will be adding phone calling capabilities to the Echo. If this new Echo with a screen does in fact have a camera, it’s possible that it will be able to make video calls as well, in addition to voice calls. The whole device does strongly resemble a video phone.

Retail price is expected to be more than the $199 Amazon Look but less than $300.

Apple’s device is rumored to be without any type of touchscreen and take design cues from the circular Mac Pro.

Update: A high-resolution image of the device was leaked on Twitter.
