Amazon’s Echo Show is one of the few smart displays on the market. And now, the Lenovo Smart Display has also joined the rank as a smart display with Google Assistant.
To sum it up in a few words, the Lenovo Smart Display is basically Google Assistant with a screen. It does everything Google Assistant does, from setting an alarm to showing you a video on Youtube. There are two variants, one with an 8-inch and another one with a 10-inch. The 8-inch smart display has a grey plastic cover on the back while the 10-inch variant features a wood-like finish.
On the spec front, the Lenovo Smart Display has a Qualcomm Home Hub Platform. It consists of Snapdragon 624 coupled with 2GB RAM and 4GB storage. It has a 5MP camera up front with support for 720p video recording. The camera has a physical shutter to hide the cam which is quite thoughtful. It supports WiFi 802.11ac networks and video calls via Google Duo.
The 8-inch variant is priced at $199.99 and the 10-inch display variant is priced at $249.99. You can buy it from the company’s website and shipping will begin in August. The Smart display comes with three months free of YouTube Premium.
