Just a few days before the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES technology trade show starts, LG unveiled a new line of smart speakers which feature Google Assistant. The main product being displayed is the ThinQ speaker, which promises to have “premium” sound alongside its Google Assistant powered brains. The speaker also supports lossless audio, which is something that the company’s more advanced smartphones feature, such as the G6 and V30. Additionally, there is also some added features from Meridian Audio, which promises to give out “more natural and warm” music.
LG is also announcing some other products alongside the ThinQ speaker, such as the SL10Y soundbar. It features Chromecast support, Dolby Atmos processing, lossless audio alongside Meridian Audio technology called Height Elevation which aims to project the sound at the level of the TV screen, theoretically providing extra sound clarity.
Finally, LG also announced the PK-series Bluetooth speakers, which again use Meridian Audio technology to produce “powerful and undistorted bass,” alongside party speakers that can kick out as much as 1800W of power while also supporting DJ and karaoke modes.
As it typically goes with pre-CES announcements, LG has not released specific information about pricing or availability for the ThinQ speaker or the other devices that the company announced.
