CES 2020 | Lenovo wants to help you frame your memories with the 21.5-inch Smart Frame
Lenovo is leaning heavier into the smart home market this year, and its latest product announcement is charting new territory for the OEM. The Lenovo Smart Frame is a large 21.5-inch digital photo frame that can sync to your Google Photos account and display your snapshots in a modern way.
The Smart Frame features a 21.5-inch 1920x1080 IPS display with an anti-glare coating. The frame is powered by a MediaTek 8167s and runs Android AOSP 10.0, essentially making it a photo-centric wall-mounted Android tablet. The Smart Frame can sync with a user’s Google Photos account to display pictures. According to Lenovo, the Smart Frame leverages A.I. to curate a photo slideshow and “automatically compose them.”
The frame features a rotating snap-on mount that organizes the cables needed to power the device. This allows users to orient the Smart Frame in either landscape or portrait in a snap. The Smart Frame also boasts two 2 Watt speakers for movies and a single microphone, likely to interact with the Google Assistant. The frame also has built-in gesture sensors; G, P, and L sensors; and an RGB sensor for ambient light detection.
The Lenovo Smart Frame will be available in August 2020 in a variety of materials to match the decor of a home. Pricing starts at US $399.
