Smart speakers have become popular over the years and are usually supplied with an AI assistant so that they can be easily used in homes. These devices play music for you or perform other tasks, such as processing memories and working by listening to your voice commands.
Lenovo's new home assistant also has a screen along with a large speaker that supports the Google Assistant. It gives you a visual response accompanied by an audio feedback from the AI.
It is not really an Android tablet, the display only shows you content based on your Google Assistant requests. Among them, it is powered by Qualcomm's Home Hub Platform, which comes with an octa-core Snapdragon 624 and 2 GB of RAM. There is also an internal storage capacity of 4 GB to perform minimal tasks that need to be saved.
The good thing is that this smart display makes video calls with Google Duo, so you can video chat with your friends while you review cooking recipes. It connects to the internet via an 802.11 wifi adapter.
Because stationary cameras for homes can be somewhat dangerous for privacy, Lenovo has added a physical shutter that covers the 5 MP front camera when not in use. The sensor can also record 720p video & # 39; s and also works together with a changeable microphone.
Lenovo has combined it with some useful offers for after-sales. For starters, users get three months of YouTube Premium. Other than that, the Smart Display can also play content from Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, HBO Now and YouTube Music. There is also support for podcasts and audiobooks.
The best thing is that it is fairly cheap and has two 8 "and 10" IPS variants that cost $ 199.99 and $ 249.99, respectively. It can be purchased on the company's website – shipping starts in August.
