Reports about the video chat device, but more details - like the name "Portal" - have now been revealed. The report claimed that Facebook plans to sell the device for $499 through pop-up stores as well as online.

It will reportedly feature a screen on the front like Amazon's Echo Show and Lenovo's new Android Assistant-equipped Smart Display, plus a camera with a wide-angle lens and facial-recognition technology that will help users connect with their Facebook accounts.

Facebook wants to be in your house with microphones and cameras in more ways than one, and instead of just being installed on your smartphone or tablet, the social networking giant is working on a new voice-enabled video chat product called Portal. The device may also play nice with streaming services like Spotify and Netflix so people can use it to play music, TV shows, and movies.

Facebook did not immediately return request for comment from CNBC.

Facebook will reportedly release its own home speaker clad with a touchscreen panel that many expect will pose a challenge to Amazon's Echo Show.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg acknowledges a cheer from the crowd before receiving an honorary Doctor of Laws degree, as fellow honorary degree recipient actor James Earl Jones (L) looks on, during the 366th Commencement Exercises at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S., May 25, 2017.
