B&O Play announced the latest iteration of its portable Beolit speaker line today, the Beolit 17, as seen by Engadget. While visually identical to both the second-generation Beolit 15and first-gen Beolit 12 models, the new model adds more powerful sound and a faster charging USB-C port.
Additionally, there’s a new Connect button, which seems to be the marquee upgrade of the device. Users can customize the button in the Beoplay App, allowing it to function as an alarm clock switch, work as a dedicated playback control button, serve as a one-touch hotkey for a specific song, or toggle B&O’s ToneTouch audio presets. The Beolit 17 also offers a slight upgrade to the latest Bluetooth 4.2 standard for connecting to devices.
