Google might be working on a high-end smart speaker with stereo sound. A new report has surfaced citing two sources that are familiar with the project and claim that the alleged smart speaker is internally called the Home Max. However, there is no information as to when the device will be launching or what specifications it will have. The report from 9to5Google states that the alleged speaker will come with a single tweeter along with dual mid-range drivers. It is also being said that the speakers will come with premium design and build quality and will be a high-end smart speaker.
The report claims that the alleged smart speaker was showcased along with other unannounced products at a closed doors meeting held by the company. It is quite possible the Home Max speaker might be launched alongside the other unannounced products on October 4.
Amazon has been expanding its Echo smart speaker lineup rapidly, this seems as if Google is trying not to fall back in the race. It is also expected that the smart speaker will be powered by the Google Assistant thus expanding the Assistant’s user base. Previously, a few reports have also suggested that the company is working on a small smart speaker similar to the Echo Dot which might be priced at $49 (Roughly Rs. 3,200).
Google at its October 4 event is expected to launch its next-gen Pixel smartphones. There even have been leaks regarding the Pixel 2 lineup to be coming alongside Android 8.1 Oreo, and being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. However, as the company hasn’t said anything regarding these products so we recommend that you take this news with a pinch of salt.
