In a surprise move, Amazon’s offering their newest smart display at a discount for. The Echo Show 5 came out less than a month ago. The $90 list price was already a good deal, since it combined the voice enabled smarts of the company’s famous assistant Alexa with a touchscreen for controlling your smart home, watching videos and making video calls.
While we expected most Alexa devices, like the Amazon Echo, to, the Show 5 didn’t seem a likely candidate. It’s brand new and already much less than the company’s other smart display, the $230 Second Generation Echo Show. This surprise sale might be too good to pass up if you want an Alexa touchscreen for your nightstand. You can get the Show 5 right now for $50.

The Show 5 has a petite 5.5 inch touchscreen. It responds to voice commands and includes unique features like a sunrise alarm to help ease you out of your sleep. Amazon also rolled out a new smart home control panel with the Show 5, so it’s easier to see and control your devices at a glance by swiping over on the touchscreen.
