Lenovo has unveiled its new Smart Display 7: a Google Assistant-powered display that features a 7-inch SD touchscreen in a compact body.
Equipped with a TrueBlock Privacy Shutter and a physical mute button, Lenovo's privacy-centric features allow you to utilize the device when you need it and disable it when you don't. With a majority of smart assistant companies coming forward with admissions of human contractors analyzing smart device recordings, these privacy options offer a sense of relief.
Trimming the larger bezels of its predecessors, the Smart Display 7 also sees the addition of an ambient light sensor for better, more realistic photos. While you may not be clamoring for your smart assistant to capture life's most important moments, the improvements make video calls and recordings even clearer.
Adding front-facing left and right speakers for stereo separation, audio resonates from a larger chamber offering richer and louder sound.
Lenovo's Smart Display 7 starts at $129.99 and is expected to be available starting in October 2019.
