Jeff Bezos-led tech giant Amazon Inc is planning to launch a television with its own brand by next month. The retail giant will launch the television in the United States in October, according to reports.

The Amazon-branded television has been under development for the past two years, reported Business Insider. Teams including Amazon Devices and Lab126 have been working on the project.

The new televisions will be powered by Amazon's own voice assistant Alexa and will be launched in 55-inch and 75-inch sizes. These TVs will be manufactured by third-party makers, including TCL.

Amazon is also working on a TV  in-house, but its launch date is still not clear, the report said.
