Google Home Hub is a smart speaker with a 7-inch display

And given that it's a Google Home device at heart, you'll have direct access to Google's growing smart home ecosystem and full access to the Google Assistant.

As luck would have it, today MySmartPrice has scored pictures of the "Google Home Hub", a product that is clearly Google's flagship hardware for its Smart Display software.

Amazon was the first of the tech giants to release a smart speaker with a screen when it released the Echo Show last summer. But Lenovo's display is an inch bigger. Surprisingly, it looks like Google won't be including a front-facing camera for Duo calls as we've seen with other Smart Display. Google initially threw its hat into the ring by announcing four third party competitors equipped with Google Assistant at CES. According to MySmartPrice, Google's version will function similarly to those, allowing you to get weather and traffic reports, ask general questions, and pretty much use Google Assistant like normal, though tasks will be shown on the display alongside verbal feedback.

Other details we can glean from the leak is that Google Home Hub will be available in not only a "Chalk White" colour but also in "Charcoal".

As the latest statistics show, Amazon is no longer leading the smart speaker race as Google appears to have taken over the once-leader of the niche category. In fact, a Google executive strongly hinted at plans to launch a smart display made by Google in an interview with Variety this spring.

If the Google Home Hub is real, Google will hopefully give it a few extra features to help it stand out from the increasingly competitive crowd of smart displays.

Even as those devices rolled out, we heard rumors that Google was working on a smart display under the company's own brand, so this leak makes sense. It will also be able to show live views of connected security cameras via a voice command.
