Google to Launch Home Hub Smart Display, Leaks Suggest

A separate report claims that the Google Home Hub will be priced very aggressively at $149 (roughly Rs. 10,800). Google's device is expected to launch at the October 9 event alongside the Pixel 3 devices.

As luck would have it, today MySmartPrice has scored pictures of the "Google Home Hub", a product that is clearly Google's flagship hardware for its Smart Display software. The listing shows the display available in two colors ("chalk" and "charcoal"), with Google's traditional mute switch on the back and what looks to be a video chat camera on the front.

The photos give credence to previous rumors that Google may soon launch its own smart display. You have a 7-inch touchscreen with a base that doubles as a speaker, and of course, there are microphones on board.

Unless these are some classy fakes, the images show off a device conceptually similar to other Google Assistant devices with a screen, which are in turn similar to Amazon's Echo Show. Leaked photos emphasize that Google Home Hub is designed for hands-free voice commands, though the screen does support touch. The screen will show essential information like weather, daily commute and schedule details, and the time.

The Google Home Hub can pair with compatible home appliances such as lights, TVs, home cameras, and more. The screenshots reveal that Google has partnered with 400 brands to offer compatibility with more than 5,000 smart devices. It can connect wirelessly over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The images that can be seen below show a device with a 7-inch LCD panel and Google Assistant integration that's likely running Android Things instead of a full-fledged version of the company's omnipresent operating system. The device reportedly weighs 480g, just a slither more than the standard Google Home device. Expect official deets once October 9 arrives.
