Lenovo SmartDisplay is a Google Assistant with a Touchscreen
Lenovo and Google® are teaming up again in a big way. This CES® 2018, we’re introducing an intuitive and personalized way to make your home smarter and make life easier. Meet the new Lenovo Smart Display with the Google Assistant built into a vibrant full HD touchscreen display and wrapped in a minimalist, modern design.1 It’s the ideal home companion for busy families who need easy-to-use, time-saving technology.
With the Lenovo Smart Display, the Google Assistant can help you kickstart your morning and get the latest weather, traffic and meeting schedules or you can relax in the evening by video calling friends with Google Duo™, watching YouTube™ videos, enjoying your favorite tunes or managing your connected devices – all with just your voice and a quick glance at the display.
Start, and end, your day with “Hey Google”
Imagine Mom waking up to a picture of her jam-packed 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.
Powered by the newly announced Qualcomm® Home Hub Platform based on the Qualcomm SDA 624 SoC which features integrated CPU, GPU and DSP as well as robust Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the Lenovo Smart Display can also give you a hand at home after a long day’s work. Picture Dad in the kitchen making a new dish for a dinner party. Hands coated in marinade and dinner guests arriving soon, he asks the Google Assistant on his Lenovo Smart Display to show a YouTube video tutorial of the recipe. Just like that, a world famous celebrity chef appears – in Full HD video along with a 10-watt full-range speaker – to help guide Dad through the cooking step by step.1 With the Google Assistant, the Lenovo Smart Display is a singular command hub for your connected smart home devices, including those through Nest® and other manufacturers from lighting to heating and more – all with just your voice or touch.
After dinner, Grandma checks in on video-call from her trip abroad and Dad picks up her call hands-free, with just his voice. Available in both 8-inch and 10-inch models, the Lenovo Smart Display rotates from portrait to landscape mode so the whole family can fit into the frame to talk with Grandma using Google Duo, available on Android® and iOS® phones.2
Fits into your modern home décor
The Lenovo Smart Display’s clean, minimalist design not only blends into your home but also adds a modern touch to it. Available in a soft Grey or natural Bamboo color, it matches most wooden, glass or granite tabletops.3 It’s flexible too – the display can be positioned horizontally or vertically to fit nearly any space. When not in use, the display doubles as a digital picture frame – showcasing an ambient screen of beautiful pictures from a personally selected album in Google Photos™, or another background image of your choosing.
Wait, there’s more
In addition to the Lenovo Smart Display, Lenovo also is launching two more devices with Google and
Qualcomm to bring immersive, life-like experiences to our customers. Lenovo Mirage™ Solo with Daydream™ is the world’s first standalone Daydream VR headset, matching simplicity with immersion to bring you the next generation of virtual reality, and Lenovo Mirage Camera is a VR180 camera that’s built to capture truly immersive VR images and videos that are easily shareable through native integration with YouTube and Google Photos. Combining Lenovo’s design and engineering, with Google’s technology, rich information and smart device ecosystem, and Qualcomm’s platform with superior connectivity and powerful compute capabilities, we’re taking these exciting, immersive experiences to the mainstream to help make people’s lives different and better.
The 10-inch Lenovo Smart Display starts at $249.99 and the 8-inch model starts at $199.99, both expected to be available early this summer.4
