Unreleased Beats Pill Speaker Teased by F1 Driver Daniel Ricciardo

Following this past weekend's sighting of NBA superstar LeBron James carrying an unreleased Beats speaker reminiscent of the former Beats Pill, F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo has also been seen teasing the unreleased speaker at this week's Grand Prix stop in Miami.

Details on the unreleased speaker remain unknown, but it features a similar pill-shaped design to the rest of the Pill family and includes a lanyard that has not been present on previous models. The most recent model in the Pill family was discontinued in 2022, and this new one will likely include a USB-C port, updated Bluetooth specs, and other improvements.

Beats has yet to officially announce the upcoming Beats Pill, so a release date similarly remains unknown.

The Beats Pill teases come as part of a busy week for Apple's speaker and headphone brand, as Beats this week introduced the Solo 4 on-ear headphones and announced the all-new Solo Buds earphones that will be launching in June.

I hope people know this is totally, 100% on purpose. He's even holding it almost identically to the picture of LeBron. Even the pics are too perfect. I'm excited about this, I just hope people know this is totally 100% on purpose, marketing at its finest. I'm all about good marketing. And this is it.

Seems like an odd way to actually carry this around. I must be old.

One of the most annoying things in the world is someone carrying around a speaker playing music in public (or worse, in the wilderness). Wear headphones.

And get off my lawn while you're at it :cool:

LeBron was recently observed carrying his around the same way. No one carries a pill speaker by the lanyard like that... and I can guarantee you that not one of these celebrities has ever used it, if it's even functional. Marketing for the weak minded folks.

LeBron and Ricciardo paid US $10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.000 to carry new Beats speaker for 30 seconds aka celebrity endorsement.
Apple's loss. I'd done it for $50
