Earlier today, an unannounced Samsung-branded Bluetooth speaker, called Scoop, passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. Unfortunately, the documentation provided in the application doesn’t reveal any exciting details about the device. However, the accompanying product photographs clearly show that the firm has opted for a futuristic design, which leads us to believe that this may be Samsung’s long-rumored competitor to the Amazon Echo.
That is, of course, just us speculating. All we know for certain is that the Scoop sports a leather carry strap, Bluetooth connectivity, a 3.5mm input audio jack, a Micro-USB charging port and a microphone for hands-free calling. Unfortunately, the paperwork doesn’t mention any information regarding the unit’s battery capacity, but seeing as the device is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, we don’t expect it to sport an overly large cell — so we’re guessing that it’ll be able to last for around half a day of continuous use.
Do you like the look of the Scoop? Is it something you’d be interested in picking up? Be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
