LG is hopping on to the smart speaker bandwagon with one of its own.
The speaker will offer a "premium" audio experience thanks to "Meridian Audio" technology and support for lossless high-resolution audio, the company said. It's shaped more like Amazon's Echo speakers than a Google Home, but it responds to all the OK Google commands you're already using. The smart speaker will be unveiled at The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018. Although LG has kept much of its technical details under the wraps - for now - the South Korean major has announced that the ThinQ smart speaker will be powered by the Google Assistant.
While there have been numerous Alexa-based smart speakers available in the market, the market for Google Assistant is still quite low, despite the significant competition that Google is capable of giving Amazon in the smart speaker segment. While the smart speaker bandwagon has almost reached full capacity up until now, LG will be shoving into an already crowded segment, but promises to offer something unique and helpful to its customers. The LG ThinQ Speaker is powered by Google Assistant. This smart speaker is equipped with Google Assistant at its core.More news: Can Mariah Carey Bounce Back from Last New Year's Eve Mishap?

Apart from the smart speaker, LG also announced a new SK10Y soundbar, portable PK series speaker and a new range of party speakers. This is probably reserved for when they unveil these products at CES 2018.
Unfortunately, LG has not revealed any pricing detail yet. LG is confident that the amount of technology it has introduced into its audio products will definitely impress audiences.
