Word has it that Google is planning to launch its own smart speaker with a screen.

The Smart Displays would likely be announced at the "Made by Google" event in October so we'll have to keep our eye out for more information on this one. "It's an aggressive plan". Third party manufacturers are also working on smart devices with Google Assistant built in.

Google declined to comment on the report. If Google wants to have this new smart speaker out the door in time for the holidays, it probably won't be much longer before it's officially confirmed - perhaps we'll see it revealed alongside the rumored Pixel 3?

Nikkei Asian Review noted that the new product, based on Google's Smart Display platform, would round out the Google Home lineup of smart speakers equipped with the voice-enabled Google Assistant artificial intelligence agent. Amazon has one in the form of the Amazon Echo Show and while Google has partnered with the likes of JBL, Lenovo and LG to create a potential competitor, Google has yet to offer a smart display of its own design.

Recent data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) revealed that Amazon has captured the overwhelming majority of the United States smart speaker market with its Echo line of products.

For what it's worth Lenovo's device scored an 8.6 rating from CNET, compared with last year's rating of 6.9 for the Echo Show (currently discounted to $130).
