Recently, LG has announced its new AI powered brand, ThinQ.
The speaker will offer a "premium" audio experience thanks to "Meridian Audio" technology and support for lossless high-resolution audio, the company said. And along with that the Google Assistant will not only help you control your smart home but also you can ask about various topics.
The entire lineup should be showcased at the CES 2018 show which kicks off in Las Vegas on January 8th. The company has announced the new entries to its ThinQ speaker setup including a new smart assistant-powered tabletop speaker, although sans a personal assistant of its own.
LG ThinQ would also hopefully be the first non-Google device to utilize the full potential of the Assistant. The device will compete with smart speakers such as Amazon's "Echo" line-up, Google Home and Apple's soon-to-launch "HomePod". All the new additions will have the Meridian Audio technology to power up the audio output. While the smart speaker bandwagon has almost reached full capacity up until now, LG will be shoving into an already crowded segment, but promises to offer something unique and helpful to its customers.
LG will instead be playing it safe by roping in Google Assistant as the digital assistant in its ThinQ Speaker.
The device is cylindrical shaped and also has LED lights. LG has also partnered with Meridian in making more speaker-based products which include sound bars and portable speakers that range in size and features. It has been named as LG Think Q and will come up during the CES 2018.
We'll have more details once they become available.
