IKEA VAPPEBY Bluetooth Speaker square model could be on the way
A new IKEA VAPPEBY Bluetooth speaker could be on the way. A device named VAPPEBY 20x20 gen 3 has recently received Bluetooth certification. A similarly named gadget, the VAPPEBY 20 gen 3 listed for FCC certification last year. A user manual for this product suggests the device is similar to the IKEA ENEBY Bluetooth speaker. The gadget is square with a built-in handle, control buttons and a scroll wheel button to adjust the volume and play or pause the music.
The key difference between these two devices looks to be the Spotify Tap playback feature, included on the VAPPEBY, which lets you resume playback or play music based on your taste at the click of a button. Another smart feature of the device is auto standby after 20 minutes. The speakers in the gadget include a 3.2-in (~81 mm) woofer and a 1-in (~25 mm) soft dome tweeter with an amplifier output power of 20 W. The upcoming gadget appears to be powered by the IKEA ENEBY Battery pack, which should power the speaker for up to 16 hours at 50% volume.
The VAPPEBY will measure 199 x 199 x 80 mm (~8 x 8 x 3-in) and weigh 1.5 kg (~52.9 oz) without the battery pack. It is unclear when this new IKEA VAPPEBY 20 x 20 Bluetooth speaker will launch or how much it will cost. The latest product in this line, the VAPPEBY Bluetooth speaker lamp, was released last March and retails for US$89.99.
