Philips Hue is one of those companies that never seem to sit still for one minute, as was evidenced last year (around the same time in fact), with a whole lot of outdoor lighting, including for the first time, outdoor light strips.
This year is already boding well with news of Hue Filament bulbs due out soon as well as, more Bluetooth enabled bulbs on top of the initial range released last month (like the new A19 bulbs we reviewed recently)
Now with the IFA trade show looming, some leaked images have emerged, first discovered by smartlights.de of the new Fugato Spotlights. These new fixtures will feature the standard 16 million colours, in addition to Bluetooth connectivity, which seems to be coming to all new Hue products.
Additionally, it seems Hue is also planning on the release of two types of recessed spotlights called ‘Centura’. The odd thing about these lights, in particular, is that they do resemble the Philips Hue Milliskin recessed spotlights that have been listed for a while, although this could be just a relaunch of the same product, with a new name, along with the addition of colour and bluetooth connectivity.
