- Lenovo’s 8-inch and 10.1-inch Smart Displays are finally available for pre-order.
- The 8-inch model is available for $149.99, while the 10.1-inch model goes for $229.99.
- Lenovo announced the Smart Displays during CES 2018.
We don’t blame you if you forgot about Lenovo’s pair of Smart Displays, since the company announced them way back during CES 2018. The two devices are back in the public consciousness, however, since you can finally plunk your money down for them.
When Lenovo announced the 8-inch and 10.1-inch Smart Displays, the company also announced their $199.99 and $249.99 respective price tags. Interestingly, B&H Photo listed the devices at $149.99 for the 8-inch model and $229.99 for the 10.1-inch version.
Perhaps Lenovo wants to make amends for crushing all of our dreams with the not-bezel-less and not-4TB Z5 smartphone.
The 8-inch and 10.1-inch Smart Displays are also listed with a September 3 release. This means that the pair of devices are not the smart displays that Google promised would be available in July.
As a recap, each Smart Display features an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 624 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. The devices also feature an Android-based OS, a 5MP front camera for video calls, 802.11ac WiFi, a 10W speaker, and dual microphone arrays.
Whereas the 8-inch Smart Display sports a 1,280 x 800 resolution, the 10.1-inch model goes up to 1,920 x 1,200. Also, the 8-inch model sports a grey soft-touch back, while the 10.1-inch model has a fancy-looking bamboo back.
Finally, the Smart Displays come with Google Assistant and its slew of capabilities.
Even though the Smart Displays are atypical as far as Lenovo devices are concerned, they showed promise during our hands-on coverage. If you want to see what that promise looks like, you can pre-order the devices at the links below.
