Facebook is looking to take upon Amazon's Echo and Echo Dot, a brand of smart speakers developed by Amazon.com alongside Google Home and Google Home Max, by bringing its own set of smart speakers in the market.

That's reportedly pushed later than an originally planned May release, so that Facebook can work on sound quality and software modification.

Finally, the report notes that the speakers will be launched "in July at the latest", although no exact release date has been given. What Facebook has in mind when it made a decision to include 15-inch touchscreens into its smart speakers, however, is a bit different.
