New Lenovo Smart Display with the Google Assistant Built In
Lenovo and Google are teaming up to introduce the Lenovo Smart Display: Google Assistant built into a full HD touchscreen display and wrapped in a minimalist design.
With the Lenovo Smart Display, the Google Assistant can help you kickstart your morning and get the latest weather, traffic and meeting schedules or you can relax in the evening by video calling friends with Google Duo, watching YouTube videos, enjoying tunes or managing your connected devices - all with just your voice and a quick glance at the display.
Powered by the newly announced Qualcomm Home Hub Platform based on the Qualcomm SDA 624 SoC which features integrated CPU, GPU and DSP as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the Lenovo Smart Display can also give you a hand at home after a long day's work. Picture Dad in the kitchen making a new dish for a dinner party. Hands coated in marinade and dinner guests arriving soon, he asks the Google Assistant on his Lenovo Smart Display to show a YouTube video tutorial of the recipe. Just like that, a celebrity chef appears - in Full HD video along with a 10-watt full-range speaker - to help guide Dad through the cooking step by step.
Available in both 8-inch and 10-inch models, the Lenovo Smart Display rotates from portrait to landscape mode so the whole family can fit into the frame to talk with Grandma using Google Duo, available on Android and iOS phones.
Available in a soft Grey or natural Bamboo color, it matches most wooden, glass or granite tabletops.
The 10-inch Lenovo Smart Display starts at $249.99 and the 8-inch model starts at $199.949, both expected to be available early this summer.
