Topside, the Dot looks exactly like its older brother, the Echo, complete with its action and mic mute buttons, light ring, volume ring, and microphone array.

The Echo scored a respectable 7 out of 10 on the repairability scale, so we're hopeful these design similarities bode well for the Dot.

Things are a little different down below, where we're greeted by a rubber cover and some labeling—and not much else.

Amazon bestows the Dot with a new model number: S04WQR.

Our pals at Creative Electron were good enough to do a little recon work for us and sent over this X-ray image of the Dot. But a mysterious dense object seems to be obscuring much of the view. What did Amazon put in there?
