With Amazon’s Echo lineup, the company has introduced the Echo Spot and the Echo Show, two Echo and Alexa-enabled speakers that come with built-in displays. Now in a report from Nikkei, it seems that Google’s very own Assistant Smart Displays could be on track for a launch later this year.
These Assistant-enabled Smart Displays aren’t new and just recently, we’ve seen Lenovo and JBL launch similar offerings. However Nikkei’s report claims that Google has their own Smart Display in the works, which we imagine will be added to the current Google Home lineup which also includes the Google Home, Home Max, and Home Mini.
Details are a bit scarce, but the report claims that Google’s own Smart Display will only offer up one screen size, versus Lenovo who decided to launch two different options for consumers. Apart from that we’re not sure how different they will be from each other, but presumably all the core functions will remain the same.
Google is expected to launch the Pixel 3 in the coming months and with rumors of a Pixel Watch in the works, we suppose it is possible that all these devices could be announced at the same time. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us in the next couple of months for more updates.
