In April, a new FCC filing hinted at the development of an intriguing new addition to the IKEA-Sonos Symfonisk line: a hidden speaker that can serve as a work of art. Now, The edge spotted a listing for an unannounced Symfonisk “photo frame with WiFi speaker” on the IKEA website. While the page is no longer available, it showed a product in black or white priced at $ 199 and designed to blend in with your home decor like other products in the line.
Depending on its description, you can hang it on its own, put it on the floor, or lean it against a wall. Although it’s called a “photo frame,” it doesn’t look like you can use it to display physical or digital images. It does, however, have “interchangeable fronts” that fit the frame, so you can probably find one that matches your style. The speaker comes with support for Airplay 2, which lets you play media directly from iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It is also compatible with Spotify Connect, can be bundled with two or more Symfonisk speakers and can be controlled by the Sonos app.
The companies have yet to announce when the WiFi-connected photo frame speaker will be available, but the fact that the list has been released means it could be released soon. If you’re impatient to get one, you might want to clear a space on your wall that would be suitable for something 22 inches high, 16 inches wide, and 2 inches deep.
