Sonos Roam portable Bluetooth speaker heavily leaked ahead of imminent launch

Sonos’ next product, which is due to be officially unveiled next Tuesday (9th March), looks almost certain to be a portable Bluetooth speaker called the Sonos Roam.

As reported by The Verge, and according to a source it states has “direct knowledge of the Roam”, the Sonos Roam (pictured) measures 6.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches, making it much smaller, and no doubt lighter, than Sonos’ existing Move Bluetooth speaker, and more comparable to the size of the popular UE Boom and JBL Charge.

Sonos hasn’t confirmed the existence of the Roam but the leak carries a fair bit of weight – not least as rumours of such a device have been circling for months now, and documents for a portable speaker were filed by Sonos with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the US a month ago.
