"Lenovo debuts 7" Google Assistant Smart Display and Android Smart Tabs

"The 8" 1200 x 800 IPS display cranks out 350 nits while dual side-firing speakers with Dolby Atmos provide the audio experience. It might only have 2 GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but for $120, that's an incredible value for a smart display that you can pull into bed for a lazy Saturday morning of Hulu. The Lenovo Smart Display 7 delivers a scaled down version of the 10-inch original that has been created to fit in rooms where space is at a premium. As the Display 7 has been created to be a hyper compact smart home hub, the device is also equipped with a far-field dual mic array, which allows commands to be issued to it from distance.

Smart Tab M8 launches in October, priced at $119.

The Lenovo Smart Tab M8 runs Android and is powered by a 5,000mAh battery. That means you can stand, sit, recline or lie down while using the Yoga Smart Tab, and still get a full experience at virtually any angle.

Thanks to Google's new Ambient Mode features for the Assistant, the tablets will display useful information on the screen based on what the Assistant knows about you while docked.

From our perspective at T3 this seems like a smart and natural new product entry by Lenovo, which offers the excellent package delivered in the Lenovo Smart Display, but in a new compact form factor that will make it ideal for apartment and small home usage. Three digital mic arrays and 360-degree far-field voice recognition can then pick up on your voice from across the room.

The feature will be available on four new Android devices that were unveiled at IFA this year: Lenovo's new Smart Tab M7 and Yoga Smart Tab tablets, and Nokia's mid-range Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 smartphones. It still features a really minimalistic design that we have seen from Lenovo's line of smart home devices so far.

And the Lenovo Smart Tab M8 can fit seamlessly into any home, with a premium full-metal cover and narrow bezels that are created to complement modern home decor.

The new Smart Display 7 comes with a new design that's really different from the original Smart Display.

Compared with its predecessors, the Lenovo Smart Display 7 now sports thinner bezels as well as an ambient light sensor for better, more realistic photos.

The latest version of Lenovo's Smart Display product includes some much-requested changes, such as reducing the screen size to seven inches.
