The Google Home Hub will join the rest of the Google Home range when it’s officially unveiled on October 9th in New York, and when a new member of the family joins you want a new family photo.
The updated render showing the Home family of products shows the Google Home, as well as Mini and Max, with the Home Hub looking rather small, as befits a device that will feature a 7″ display.
The render shows the Home Hub without the base unit, which if we’re to jump into the wild end of speculation may mean that it can be removed from the base to use as a tablet to easily move it around the house. The unit is powered by Android Things as opposed to a full Android instance, so it would offer limited function as a tablet, though as a smart home hub it would offer a good deal of functionality with Google Assistant compatible with over 5,000 devices.
Disappointingly, the leaks that have popped up show no evidence of a camera for the device, which the units from JBL, LG and Lenovo all have to enabled video conferencing calls via Duo.
The Home Hub will be priced at $149 (or around $217.61 AUD) according to previous leaks, but we’ll have to wait for more info to find out if Google will be launching this outside of the US.
Are you liking the idea of a Google Home Hub, or are you waiting for options of one of the models from Lenovo or JBL?
