Along the obvious smart integration of the Google Assistant, the ThinQ Speaker from LG also promises "premium sound quality".
Although LG did not unveil a lot of details, it did say that the ThinQ Speaker will feature Meridian Audio technology as well as High Resolution Audio which is compatible with high-quality lossless files. LG's ThinQ Speaker will be able to activate LG's smart home appliances and, as far as we can see from the picture, it does not look half bad and has top-mounted controls.
In addition to the ThinQ Speaker, LG also unveiled the new SK10Y soundbar, a 5.1.2-channel speaker set with Chromecast support, Dolby Atmos, and plenty of Meridian Audio technologies. The lineup also includes the new PK-series Bluetooth speakers.
The entire lineup should be showcased at the CES 2018 show which kicks off in Las Vegas on January 8th.
