According to YouTube user KarQ, here is Echo's reworked characteristics:

• Focusing Beam DPS has changed from 200 to 175
• Duplicated targets' total HP can't pass 300 HP

Both of these characteristics have nerfed Echo's abilities. KarQ mentions, referring to Duplicate, that the established HP limit reduces the need to use it on tanks. Even though this was a primary concern in Overwatch, it won't be as useful or helpful in Overwatch 2.
