Lenovo’s new Smart Display with Google Assistant seems to be chasing would-be buyers of Amazon’s Echo Show.

Lenovo continues its CES 2018 announcements this time with their new Android-powered Smart Display and Miix 630 PC. The Miix 630 includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 with 4G/LTE built-in and is a detachable 2-in-1. While that device is interesting I think more people will find the Smart Display even more interesting. The displays come in 8-inch and 10-inch sizes and have Google Assistant integrated. This looks to be a play at Amazon’s Echo Show device which also has a touchscreen but with Alexa built-in. The displays look to want to be your central hub for controlling your IoT devices and consuming content. Check out the full details below on these new devices from Lenovo.

The Miix 630 is Lenovo’s first device built around the new Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and combines blazing-fast 4G connectivity with up to 20 hours of battery life. Like a smartphone, this combination means you’re always on and always connected. The built-in infrared camera supports Windows Hello sign-in and the fanless design allows the Miix 630 to be thin and light.
