LG has launched its answer to the Google Home Hub. Dubbed LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 (yes, you read that right), it focuses on its audio prowess to differentiate itself from the competition, tapping Meridian Audio to deliver high-end sound.

The LG G XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 is out now and is set to rock your world, according to the Korean tech giant. The device is LG's answer to the Google Home Hub and similar devices like the Lenovo Smart Display. Where LG has looked to differentiate itself from the competition is in partnering with high-end audio specialist Meridian to give it an edge in audio performance.  

The two Meridian-tuned front-facing speakers are powered by a 20W driver in each, which certainly sounds impressive on paper. This is matched with a high-quality 8-inch HD touch-screen display that works in combination with the speakers for displaying video and smart home functions, or will provide a combination of pristine visuals and audio to go with its in-built camera designed for video calls. Powered by Google's Android Things OS, the device can be used to control and manage over 1,000 connected devices as well as LG's own range of connected home products. 

If that all sounds good, LG is launching it in the US with special Black Friday pricing. It will normally retail for US$299, but it is on special for a limited time at US$100 off.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to site and its readership.
