In the dynamic world of smart home technology, Amazon has consistently been a trailblazer, and the latest addition to their Echo Show series is no exception. The third generation, represented by the Amazon Echo Show 5 H97N6S, takes the smart display experience to a whole new level. In this blog post, we'll explore the evolution from its predecessor, the Amazon Echo Show 5 H23K37, highlighting the remarkable enhancements that make the H97N6S a must-have for both home and office applications.

One of the standout features of the H97N6S is its hexa-core processor, the AZ2 Neural Edge Processor, a collaboration between Amazon and MediaTek. This upgrade from the quad-core processor in the H23K37 ensures faster performance, smoother multitasking, and an overall more responsive user experience.

In terms of storage, both devices provide 8 GB of MLC NAND Flash. The H97N6S comes with 1 GB of DDR4 RAM in a single package, while its predecessor, the H23K37, was equipped with 1 GB of DDR3 RAM split into two packages. This memory boost contributes to improved efficiency and better handling of resource-intensive applications.

The H97N6S debuts Amazon's new operating system, Vega OS, offering a more advanced and user-friendly interface compared to the older Fire OS found in the first-generation Echo Show 5. This ensures a seamless and intuitive user experience, with regular updates and enhancements directly from Amazon.

The camera capabilities of the H97N6S have seen a significant improvement with a 2 MP front camera, compared to the 1 MP front camera in the H23K37. Both devices prioritize user privacy with a mechanical camera cover, allowing users to enjoy the benefits of video calls without compromising security.

The H97N6S boasts a larger built-in speaker, elevating the audio experience to new heights. This enhancement ensures clear and immersive sound quality, making it an ideal choice for entertainment and communication.

Both devices offer WiFi 5 and Bluetooth support, but the H97N6S goes a step further by introducing compatibility with the Matter protocol. This opens up new possibilities for seamless integration with a wide range of smart home devices, creating a truly connected ecosystem.

While both devices are powered by AC adapters, the H97N6S comes with a 22W adapter, providing ample power for its advanced features. In comparison, the H23K37 was equipped with a 15W power adapter.
