Last week LG announced its new audio lineup slated to be revealed at CES 2018. Among the products set to hit the stage are a Dolby Atmos-enabled soundbar, a premium AI speaker with Google Assistant and a line of heavy-duty portable speakers built to take a lot of outdoor wear and tear.
LG will be taking the stage next week at CES 2018 and will announce its first ever premium smart AI speaker called the LG ThinQ.
The speaker promises to not only produce high-quality audio, but it also comes with Google Assistant built-in. LG partnered up with Google to make sure the LG ThinQ Speaker has all the bells and whistles that early adopters of the Google Assistant platform have become accustomed to.
The LG ThinQ Speaker isn’t just a smart speaker, it’s also a personalized “voice-activated interface” for LG’s smart home appliances. For instance, 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.”
Also, the speaker doesn’t give up when it comes to sound quality in part due to Meridian Audio technology. Also at CES we will be seeing a few portable “PK” Bluetooth speakers from LG. They come with support for 24-bit audio streaming, flashing lights, new style grips, and a rugged design.
There will also be larger speakers for use at parties. They’ll have DJ and lighting features, as well as powerful audio for that next fun-filled, karaoke get together.
The newest LG SK10Y Soundbar will deliver up to 550 watts of output and support 5.1.2 channels. Plus, with Dolby Atmos surround sound, it will surely have the maximum “wow” factor while you’re watching your favorite movies or TV shows.
The SK10Y is even comes with two ceiling-firing speakers that can enhance the sensation of being “enveloped with sound,” and it has smart voice support, so you can say “OK, Google” and request a specific song, radio station or playlist of your choice.
For now, we don’t have any pricing or availability details for these brand new products, but stay tuned to 9to5Toys as we’ll learn more as LG hits the stage next week.
