LG Showcases New Audio Lineup with Meridian

28 December 2017

The company won't be introducing its very own AI helper, meaning that its speaker will host the tried and tested Google Assistant.

If you were thinking the world needs more smart speakers in it, you're in luck: LG just announced the LG ThinQ Speaker, basically a Google Home made by LG instead of Google. However, it has pointed out that the ThinQ Speaker will be able to deliver quality output with the help of the company's partnership with Meridian Audio.

Apart from the ThinQ smart speaker, LG will also showcasing the new portable PK series speakers at the CES.

While there are plenty of third-party Google Assistant-based smart speakers already available on the market, none of them offer the feature of making outbound phone calls.

After announcing its new Gram notebooks, smart air solution products, and monitors, LG Electronics today teased its 2018 speaker lineup ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 in Las Vegas next month. End-users need to say "OK Google" and then request to begin playing favourite songs, podcasts or audio clips from their favourite online streaming service. LG hasn't said anything specific about the matter, but the press release states that the Korean company has partnered with Google to ensure that ThinQ "delivers all the conveniences that come with having a digital assistant at your side". In addition to being a smart companion, the smart AI speaker can also function as a voice-activated interface for LG's smart home appliances. The speaker uses Meridian Audio technology and offers High Resolution Audio compatible with high-quality lossless files, allowing it to faithfully recreate sounds as originally intended by the artists. The PK series includes three wireless speakers, all of which feature rugged design and convenient grip for easy handling. "At this year's CES, I'm confident audiences will be impressed with the amount of technology we've introduced into our audio products without compromising on sound quality".
