  • The current Echo Dot model

The Google Home Mini and Amazon Echo Dot are both priced at $50, $300 less than Apple's only smart speaker.

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. While this might seem like a poor business strategy, remember that Google holds certain features exclusive to the Home that aren't available on third-party Assistant speakers.

Google's next voice-activated device could be a smart speaker with a screen. But Lenovo's display is an inch bigger.

Google is apparently getting ready to launch its very own smart display: The company may soon unveil a new device dubbed the Google Home Hub that combines a voice-controlled smart speaker with a touch screen display, according to newly leaked product information. They are the Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max.

For several months now, we've been hearing rumors that Google might introduce its own Smart Display to compete with those already on the market. Interestingly, the Home Hub lacks a webcam, suggesting Google doesn't see it being used for Google Duo calls. And the Home Hub is meant to connect to a plethora of other smart devices in the home.

Like the Google Home, interaction with the Home Hub is done via Google Assistant. Alphabet's subsidiary is planning to offer the Google Home Hub in White and Charcoal variants, as per the same source.

Google may attempt to differentiate itself from rivals by launching a smart display with a smaller screen, as it tries to cater toward consumers who would use it for things like weather updates and reminders, instead of things like watching videos.

In addition to these capabilities, Google has also integrated quite a few other features such as the ability to pair the device with security cameras, lights, TVs, and more.
