Lenovo Smart Display Review

Adjust Comment Print

You have a 7-inch touchscreen with a base that doubles as a speaker, and of course, there are microphones on board.

According to the leak, the Home Hub will have direct access to Google's Assistant, which will allow it to display weather, calendar entries, recipes and more on the screen. That should assuage privacy concerns, but it still seems like an odd omission given it's a feature available on the Echo Show, as well as the Googe-powered devices from Lenovo and JBL.

The rear of the device looks like a large speaker and is covered in fabric. But Lenovo's display is an inch bigger. Interestingly, the Home Hub lacks a webcam, suggesting Google doesn't see it being used for Google Duo calls. The report states that the tablet-shaped LCD display won't run on Android, but it will instead be driven by a scaled-down Google Assistant interface.

Google will reportedly unveil a 7-inch smart display at its October 9 event. Google had shipped 2.3 million units of the Google Home Mini globally while Amazon had shipped 2.2 million units of Echo Dot during Q2 2018.

A leaked product page also talks up tight Google Photos integration, with you being able to use your voice to display specific photos, or photos based on where they were taken.

If the Google Home Hub is real, Google will hopefully give it a few extra features to help it stand out from the increasingly competitive crowd of smart displays.

We've known for a little while that Google Assistant would work on displays, but only third-party manufacturers have actually started to develop such systems.

Even as those devices rolled out, we heard rumors that Google was working on a smart display under the company's own brand, so this leak makes sense.
