It looks like Sonos is about to release a portable speaker with Bluetooth and a charging base called the Sonos Move.
Sonos is known for making high-end wireless audio solutions that connect together and play music via Wi-Fi. This new speaker looks to be a combination of the company’s traditional functionality and Bluetooth, according to WinFuture.
There aren’t many concrete details included in the leak but images of the rumoured hardware give us an idea of what the portable speaker looks like.
Overall the speaker seems very similar to a Sonos One with a few notable differences. For example, the new speaker features a tighter grill, a more extensive base along the bottom and a recessed handle on the back so it can be carried.
On the top, it looks like the speaker still has the same six microphone array featured in the Sonos One, indicating it will likely feature smart speaker capabilities, too.
The most interesting addition is what looks like a charging base. Since the speaker is portable and can work in the home like a regular Sonos, it appears the company is including a base station that it sits on to charge.
There is also a USB-C port on the back which can also likely be used for charging.
It’s exciting Sonos is moving into the portable audio market, but only time will tell if the company is able to compete with brands already established in the space.
