LG to Launch New ThinQ Smart Speaker
LG has announced a new high-end smart speaker, ThinQ on December 29, 2017 to take on Googles recently launched Home Max.
South Korean multinational electronics company LG Electronics has kept technical details of its new smart speaker confidential. ThinQ smart speaker will be powered by the Google Assistant. The company is expected to officially launch the speaker at the upcoming CES 2018 trade show in Las Vegas. “LG will be using the stage at CES 2018 to announce its first premium smart AI audio product, the LG ThinQ Speaker, which not only produces high-quality sound but comes with Google Assistant built in,” mentioned official blog.
According to LG, The ThinQ smart speaker features a premium audio experience, courtesy its new Meridian Audio technology and support for lossless high resolution audio. The ThinQ speaker can operate smart home devices via a voice app from LG. The list includes the company’s ThinQ smart home appliances such as smart refrigerators, dishwashers, dryers, and even vacuum cleaners. “The LG ThinQ Speaker can be set to turn on an LG appliance with the simple spoken command, “OK Google, talk to LG, turn on the air purifier.” While Amazon has a distinct line-up of Echo speakers for the masses, Google also has its entry-level Home and others. Almost all of these entry-level offerings tend to compromise on audio out.
According to Artificial Intelligence in Telecommunication Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is group of methodology that focus on formation of intelligent machines with the help of human intelligence such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages. AI has major applications in telecommunication, which can be integrated into smart electronics. Google has recently launched a premium, high-end smart speaker called the Google Home Max for those looking for the smarts as well as the sound. Apple had announced the HomePod, which is yet to hit the market. Comparing the looks of LG smart speaker, it most looks like Home Max. ThinQ smart speaker will most likely command a hefty price tag as well._
