Google Home Hub is a smart speaker with a 7 inch screen, that leaked last week in a render or two. Now it’s completed by even more renders, that detail the color choices, the stand and more. Google Home Hub Smart Display is shown in white and charcoal.
The product is expected to be announced on October 9th, when Google also plans to announce its Pixel 3 phones and probably some accessories. Google Home Hub was leaked this time to Android Headlines by a trusted source, so it’s as legit as they come. These Chalk and Charcoal versions are just the start, so probably we’ll see more colors in the future. The render highlights the slant of the stand/base, which gives a more natural viewing angle for the display.
The texture of the device feels like fabric, or a wicker basket of sorts. Expect this device to have Google Assistant full front and center and the screen lets you watch YouTube videos, take video calls and follow recipes. Sources say that we’ll see an interface similar to Android Things machines, with access and visual references to questions via Google Assistant.
You can stream music, control appliances and more. By the way, scratch that video call thing, since this device won’t have Google Duo videocalls, because it doesn’t have a camera, or at least we can’t see one or a shutoff switch. Aside from a 7 inch LCD display and far field microphones, we don’t have any sort of specs list. Expect a price of around $149 in USA.
