Many tech blog sites are speculating on a potential upgrade to the Amazon Echo Dot expected to launch in October this year.

The main anticipated upgrades to the hugely popular smart home device are an upgraded speaker bring an expected 70 percent increase in volume. In our view the Dot does a good job for a device of its size and bests Google’s equivalent of the mini, coming with real volume control buttons and an optional display clock.

Expected retail price is $49.99 for the standard version and USD$59.99 for the Dot with clock.
