The next "Symfonisk" from IKEA and Sonos may be a frame speaker

As early as April, a new FCC document hinted that an interesting new product was being developed IKEA-Sonos Symfonisk series: a hidden speaker that can double as a work of art. Now, The Verge has found an unannounced list of Symfonisk "photo frames with WiFi speakers" on the IKEA website. Although this page is no longer available, it showcases a black or white product at a price of $199, designed to integrate with your home decor like the other products in the series.

According to its description, you can hang it on its own, place it on the floor or lean it against a wall. While it's called a "picture frame," it doesn't sound like you can use it to display physical or digital images. It has "interchangeable fronts" that fit the frame, though, so you can presumably find one that fits your style. The speaker comes with Airplay 2 support, giving you a way to play media directly from iPhones, iPads and Macs. It's also compatible with Spotify Connect, can be grouped with two or more Symfonisk speakers and can be controlled by the Sonos app.

The companies have yet to announce when the WiFi-connected picture frame speaker will be available, but the fact that the listing was posted means it could be out soon. If you're looking forward to getting one, you may want to clear a space on your wall that would fit something that's 22 inches high, 16 inches wide and 2 inches deep.
