Sonos released the Move wireless speaker in September 2019, so a refreshed unit, the Sonos Move 2, is pretty much overdue. There’s some good news if you’re waiting for the next-gen model.
According to a new leak, Sonos is ready to release the much-awaited Move 2 in September. The great part is that the updated model won’t just be a regular generational upgrade.
Instead, it’ll come with a wide range of improvements. Sonos has reportedly integrated the power delivery on the Move 2.
That means you can charge your phone with the USB-C port of the wireless speaker. Of course, without a large battery inside, the power delivery feature won’t make any sense.
Well, Sonos Move 2 will amaze you in that regard. According to The Verge, Move 2 will offer 24 hours of runtime with a single charge.
In comparison, the Sonos Move 1st Gen could offer up to 10 hours of playtime with a juiced-up battery. And just like the previous model, the Move 2 will have a replaceable battery.
That means you can just swap out the cell when it’s failing to hold up the charge. What’s more important is that the Sonos Move 2 is more power efficient than the original model.
It comes with a standby energy-saving mode, saving energy when you’re not listening to anything on the speaker.
But it’s not just the battery department that saw an upgrade on the Sonos Move 2. Sonos has also focused on the other aspects of the wireless speaker.
According to the latest report, there’ll be substantial improvements in the audio setup. What makes it substantial?
The original Sonos Move could output audio in the mono mode. On the other hand, the Sonos Move 2 will offer true stereo playback. This upgrade will make the upcoming wireless speaker deliver an immersive audio experience.
Under the hood, the Sonos Move 2 comes with dual-angled tweeters, whereas the original Move has one downward-firing tweeter and one mid-woofer. Regarding woofers, the new model should offer the same high-quality bass as the original model.
In addition, Move 2 will feature Automatic TruePlay. This feature makes the speaker automatically configure itself by considering the placement.
In other words, you don’t need to manually adjust to get high-quality audio output from the wireless speaker.
Another aspect where the Sonos Move 2 will shine is in terms of controls. Just like the Sonos Era 100 and Era 300, the new speaker will come with tweaked buttons and dedicated volume control. This control setup will let you make on-the-go adjustments to playback.
