Google Home Hub Is An Amazon Echo Show Rival Coming This Fall

Google Home Hub Features A 7-inch Touch Display; Comes With Google Assistant

Google Home Hub leaks, set to face off against Amazon Echo Show

Google has scheduled a press event for October 9 that the company is likely going to use to unveil this new device alongside its new line of Pixel phones. Mysmartprice showed off leaked renders of a device supposedly called the Google Home Hub on Tuesday. This time however, the new Home Hub will support both touch and voice. So you'll be able to talk to it like you would to a Google Home, but unlike smart speakers, on such a smart display the Assistant will obviously also be able to show you things.

After letting Lenovo and JBL go first, Google might be ready to roll out its own version of a smart display.

Even as those devices rolled out, we heard rumors that Google was working on a smart display under the company's own brand, so this leak makes sense. According to a leaked product page, the device will be available in Chalk White and Charcoal. Yet, the Home Mini and Echo Dot can do nearly everything the Homepod can do (and more if you have an Android smartphone). It can access Google Photos via voice commands, and the Live Albums feature allows users to see these photos in a slide-show format.

Connectivity-wise, you get dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The pricing and availability for the Home Hub has been tipped by Android Authority as being "available later this fall for $149". The report also confirms that there will be no camera on board for Duo calls, something that was seen missing in the leaked images as well. There are ambient light and color sensors near the display, and the Home Hub weighs 480g. Known as the Google Home Hub, the screened Google Home device is poised to take on the Amazon Echo Show by combining Google Assistant features with a touchscreen interface.

October 9 is the day Google is holding its annual hardware event.
