Just ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, LG has unveiled their new range of smart home speakers that support Google Assistant or Alexa. As we live in an era of home automation and AI, smart speakers already are turning mainstream, especially with Google’s affordable Google Home Mini and Amazon Alexa speakers. Howbeit, today LG announced the arrival of their own smart speaker, termed as ThinkQ, it provides the users with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa support. Of course, the device looks like a high-end competitor to Google Home Max.
LG’s New Smart Speaker
LG has always delivered on the sound department, it has been their primary focus for a while. Recent LG phones have been featuring a quad DAC themselves, a recent example being the LG V30. Similarly, we might get an elevated sound quality on ThinkQ speakers as well, thanks to Meridian Audio Technology. Not to mention, it has support for lossless high-resolution audio.
You can use the speaker to control your smart home devices with the help of Google Assistant. Moreover, you can also use the voice control app from LG itself for the same purpose. Nonetheless, LG doesn’t want to end things with only the speaker, they will be launching refrigerators, washers, dryers, and more. Means, you get convenient voice controlling options to regulate almost everything in your home.
The company kept its mouth shut when asked about further details of the topic. One thing we are certain is that it will be fully unveiled at CES 2018.
We already have a range of smart speakers available on the market right now, for example, the Google Home and the Amazon Alexa line up. Both Amazon Echo and Google Home, lay right on top of the list. The Sonos One and the upcoming Apple HomePod focuses more on the sound quality. So, will ThinkQ speakers be worth it?
Well, you have to wait a few weeks to get an accurate answer to this question given the lack of clarity on the pricing. If they competitively price the device and doesn’t go back in terms of features, the speaker will create ripples in the market.
