[CES2018] Lenovo Smart Display Unveiled
Yesterday, we talked about the 2-in-1 Lenovo Miix 630 laptop that was unveiled at CES 2018. Today, we’re going to show you the new Lenovo Smart Display which was also unveiled at the event in Las Vegas.
Designed to make your home smarter and life easier, the Lenovo Smart Display, is what the company is calling the “ideal home companion”, with it being able to fetch the latest weather and traffic information, sync with your daily schedule, video calls with Google Duo, watch YouTube videos, and more. The best part is, you can do this with just the use of your voice thanks to Google Assistant.
It is powered by the newly announced Qualcomm Home Hub Platform, which is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 624 chipset. As expected, it does have its integrated processors, graphics chip, DSP, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity.
This is how the Lenovo Smart Display was described:
Imagine Mom waking up to a picture of her jampacked day full of meetings and errands with just a quick glance at her calendar on the large 8-inch or 10-inch screen of the Lenovo Smart Display. The Google Assistant can also read out her schedule and tell her the weather as she multi-tasks to get everyone out the door. Ask the Google Assistant for traffic updates it will bring up Google Maps to show Mom the fastest morning commute.
It also reminds her on her way out that it’s her colleague’s birthday, so she simply asks the Google Assistant on her Lenovo Smart Display to show the closest open bakery on Google Maps to pick up a birthday cake. To save Mom even more time, the Google Assistant on Lenovo Smart Display will be able to set up routines designed to help Mom when getting out the door in the morning, or returning home in the evening.

Pokdepinion: Well, this is a rather interesting device. Would definitely want one for my home, but I want to see how convenient it is with my voice just in case it might have trouble understanding me, just like most people in real life #3Deep5Me
