Ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that will take place in Las Vegas, LG has announced a range of new speakers. Among all the announced devices, the one that stands out is ThinQ Google Assistant Speaker.
LG’s ThinQ Google Assistant Speaker is powered by Google Assistant — a voice assistance service. In terms of design, the speaker looks similar to Google’s Home smart speaker.
According to the company, it worked with Meridian Audio to create a “premium audio product.” As the company is calling it a premium speaker, we are expecting the ThinQ speaker to be priced higher than the Google Home.
The speaker will enable users to control all the smart home appliances that can be controlled by Google Assistant, through voice commands. LG says that it partnered with Google “to ensure that the LG ThinQ Speaker delivers all the conveniences that come with having a digital assistant at your side”.
Along with the ThinQ Google Assistant speaker, the company has also announced a new SK10Y soundbar that delivers 550W of output and supports 5.1.2 channels by harnessing the power of Dolby Atmos technology.
The company has also revealed a portable PK series speaker that “enables premium sound and mood lighting features in a fun, convenient package” that can be taken anywhere. LG says that it offers powerful and undistorted bass, as well as optimized speech and vocals. They are compatible with the APT-X HD Bluetooth standard for streaming 24-bit music over a wireless connection.
LG has not revealed pricing information or availability information for the ThinQ Speaker. However, the company will be showcasing all these speakers at the CES 2018. We are expecting the company to announce pricing and availability information at CES.
