Lenovo Launches Home Smart Devices with Google Assistant

Lenovo launches new smart home devices, the Smart Display (7-inch and 10-inch) and Smart Clock, both with Google Assistant, in Singapore.

Product not to scale

If you are tired of the smart devices by Google, maybe Lenovo’s smart devices are interesting to you. The Lenovo Smart Displays has similar features with Google Nest Hub but they have a few things that Google does not have.

For example, both smart displays (7 or 10 inch) have built-in front camera for you to communicate with anyone using Google Duo or Google Meet.

Although Google Nest Hub has a microphone and can perform Google Duo or Google Meet call, it does not have a camera for the other party to see you.

Another thing that Google does not have is the size. Lenovo has the 10-inch Smart Display whereas Google’s largest display is just 7-inch.

Design-wise, the Lenovo has very safe colors and design to blend in to any modern home. I love the bamboo 10-inch Smart Display.

Looking at the measurements, they are quite big and heavy. So, do take note where you want to place them in the house.

The Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant

Lenovo Smart Display 10-inch

Available in two screen sizes, 7-inch and 10-inch, and designed to fit your perfect living space. With a vibrant HD touchscreen display and wrapped in a minimalist, modern design, the Lenovo Smart Display is the ideal home companion for busy families who need easy-to-use, time-saving technology.

Lenovo Smart Display 7-inch

From controlling the home to entertaining the family with brilliant sound and stunning quality visuals from popular services like YouTube, the Lenovo Smart Display is the ideal device for any modern home and for all busy households.

With its bright HD screen, you can see the information you need at a glance, such as your reminders, calendar appointments, and shopping lists. The Smart Display makes multi-tasking a breeze, bringing you step-by-step recipe instructions, helpful answers and YouTube videos, and acts as a single hub to control your smart home devices – all hands-free.

Use built-in video calling to connect with your friends and family using just your voice. Google Duo and Google Meet group calling are also now available on Lenovo Smart Display 10, giving you more flexibility and ways to connect with groups of people at once on your Smart Display. With this new feature, after setup in Duo, you can host a call for up to 32 people.

Use your voice to control your smart home devices. Connect smart cameras and ask Google to see who is at the front door or keep an eye on the children, all while cooking, doing the dishes or catching up on other tasks. Just say “Hey Google” to get started.

The Lenovo Smart Display’s clean, organic design not only blends into your home but adds a modern touch. Available in natural white 7-inch or bamboo 10-inch, it matches most wooden, glass or granite workbenches designed to blend seamlessly into your home. When not in use, the Smart Display doubles as a digital picture frame – showcasing beautiful pictures from a personally selected album in your Google Photos.

The Lenovo Smart Clock with Google Assistant

The Lenovo Smart Clock is your bedroom’s new best friend, supporting voice and touch control on a subtle 4-inch In Plane Switching (IPS) screen. With its compact size, it will fit perfectly on a nightstand and blend into your bedroom décor, with a full fabric soft-touch cover. With a full-size USB port for convenient phone charging, there is one less thing to worry about on the bedside table.

The Lenovo Smart Clock is optimised to help you develop healthier sleep habits – serving as the ultimate bedroom companion to cut down on disruptive screen time throughout the evening, helping improve your sleep hygiene.

With help from Google, waking up and getting ready for bed have never been easier. Ask it questions and tell it to do things – it responds to your voice or touch. Just say “Hey Google” to get started.

Lenovo has paid extra attention to speaker quality in the Lenovo Smart Clock. Packing a full range 6W speaker and two passive radiators that can fill up a large bedroom, the Smart Clock is tuned with the latest background noise reduction technology for enhanced radio listening. To wind down before sleeping, just ask Google to play some relaxing music or guided meditation.

With multi-room functionality, you can also add the Lenovo Smart Clock to a home speaker group and play music, audiobooks, podcasts and radio across multiple devices in several rooms. The Lenovo Smart Clock also works with Chromecast, so you can stream shows and music on your TV or speakers – using only your voice.

The Lenovo Smart Clock can be programmed to complement a user’s wake and sleep cycles, while offering visually assisted experiences when needed. Awakening to the Lenovo Smart Clock is designed to be as pleasant and refreshing.

To top it all off, you can now have another convenient and affordable hub from which you can control your smart home.
