Lenovo Smart Display hands-on
Lenovo’s teamed up with Google to create a rival to Amazon’s Echo Show. While the hardware may be promising, the name is quite forgettable. Dubbed simply “Lenovo Smart Display,” this Google Assistant-based smart speaker offers the convenience of an either 8 or 10-inch screen to facilitate deeper, more intuitive interaction between the user(s) and Google’s Assistant.
Of course, Google’s Assistant brings all of its useful and fun features, such as smart home control, your daily schedule run-down, and news briefings. With the addition of a display, though, such information is complimented with visual aids, showing your routes traffic conditions, or video news briefings from YouTube, for instance.
Lenovo is aiming to make Smart Display your all-in-one in-home entertainment/assistant device. Priced at $249.99 for the 10-inch, and $199.99 for the 8-inch model, Lenovo Smart Display is expected to be available in the summer of 2018.
