LG unveils its ThinQ Google Assistant speaker

LG unveils its ThinQ Google Assistant speaker

The LG SK10Y Dolby Atmos soundbar is equipped with technology designed by Meridian Audio, which promises a high-quality an immersive audio experience. LG's ThinQ Speaker will be able to activate LG's smart home appliances and, as far as we can see from the picture, it does not look half bad and has top-mounted controls. The company will formally launch the ThinQ smart speaker at the upcoming CES 2018 trade show in Las Vegas.

South Korean tech major LG Electronics has announced that it is adding a new smart speaker named "ThinQ" to its 2018 line-up, which will be powered by Google Assistant.

LG teamed up with Google to ensure that the LG ThinQ Speaker delivers all the conveniences which comes with having a digital assistant at your side.

While there have been numerous Alexa-based smart speakers available in the market, the market for Google Assistant is still quite low, despite the significant competition that Google is capable of giving Amazon in the smart speaker segment. The SK10Y soundbar has Chromecast support, and the LG ThinQ Speaker is powered by Assistant. All the new additions will have the Meridian Audio technology to power up the audio output.

The ThinQ Speaker is called by LG as its "first premium smart AI audio product" that doubles up as a nifty smart home hub.

The device is cylindrical shaped and also has LED lights. Additionally, it will also be launching the LG PK portable speakers with 24-bit audio support.

Unfortunately, LG has not revealed any pricing detail yet. This is probably reserved for when they unveil these products at CES 2018.
