- The second generation of Amazon’s Fire TV Cube has been on the market since 2019.
- The release of the third generation could now be imminent.
- A software update serves as an indication of this.
After three years, Amazon could soon be releasing a new version of the Fire TV Cube. A Fire TV software update called AFTGAZL serves as an indication of this.
Technical innovations unknown
Software is not hardware, but there are increasing signs that the GAZL version could be intended for a new FireTV Cube model. Because the update is not only listed on Amazon with the software updates for the other two cubes, but also the properties listed are the same as the predecessors and differ accordingly from other Fire TV devices, the blog reports AFTNews
What the new Fire TV Cube could have under the hood, so to speak, cannot yet be read from the little information. During his research, the author of the “aftvnews” article found a photo file called Gazelle.jpg, which shows an image of the previous model. To conclude from this that the new edition will look the same as its predecessor is a bit far-fetched, although not impossible.

The report also brings up WiFi6 support as a technical innovation, which is less outlandish. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max, for example, is already equipped with this feature. A new Fire TV Cube should also be equipped with this feature.
The general conditions would fit
But what can be said is that software updates can certainly be used as an indication of a new model. This is the common way to prepare for a release. The time frame would also fit. Amazon usually announces new Fire TV models in September and then releases them in October. The previous indications fit into this strategy.
In a few weeks, if everything goes well, you may already have a new Fire TV Cube in your hands, or if there are delays, you will at least know more.
