Last year, Lenovo’s attempt to enter the smart-clock business failed due to certain reasons. The Chinese company had introduced its new Lenovo Smart Clock, which was a tiny version of the Google-Assistant. It was a unique idea. However, since its price was as high as $80, it wasn’t much of a success. Regardless, Lenovo is making a comeback this year with the Smart Clock Essential. It is based on the same principle but is smaller, simpler, and less expensive.
Lenovo Smart Clock Design
The new Smart Clock is comparatively different from the older model. It features a 4-inch LED that only shows time, weather, date, and has an option to set timers. Since it is powered by Google Assistant, it comes with a 1.5-inch 3W speaker and 2 x far-filed microphones. It also features a nightlight with a maximum brightness of 31 lumens and has a USB Type-A output port at the back. The port can be used to charge smartphones and other devices. Further, it has regular buttons for play/pause, power on/off, alarm, and volume control. A microphone on/off toggle button is also inserted at the back alongside the power port.
Lenovo Smart Clock Features and Price
The Smart Clock is available in a single Soft Grey color. It packs:
- Amlogic A113X chipset
- 4GB RAM
- 4GB eMMC storage
- Dual-band WiFi 5
- Bluetooth 5.0
The Smart Clock Essential costs $49.99 in the U.S. Lenovo announced that the device will be available to the customers from October onwards and keeping its promise, the company is offering discounts on this product as well as the original Smart Clock. One can avail of this device in multiple retail stores across the United States.
