Earlier LG unveiled ThinQ smart speakers with Google Assistant and today it is expanding that lineup with a smart display – the LG ThinQ WK9. It has impressive stereo speakers of its own, tuned by Meridian Audio, but it stands out with an 8” touchscreen.
It has Chromecast functionality built in so you can cast to it from other devices. With the camera above the screen you can make Duo calls. Unfortunately, that is all that LG has revealed about this device so far.
It will be available in the summer at a yet unknown price. An Amazon Echo Show is $230, so the ThinQ WK9 should be in the same category.
It's called ThinQ... is it a pun? it looks like a prototype, 3D printed at home by a kid for a school project.
If that thickness carries some awesome boomer speakers. and nice bass addons. with a nice 35,000 mAh battery. It's legit. Otherwise. It'd be better be a 2cm thickness device.
Honestly speaking, that does look like a old TV.
