To date Lenovo has been the only company to release a Google Assistant powered Smart Clock. Finally we are getting a second device, once again from Lenovo. Yep Lenovo is back again with the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential.

The new Smart Clock has cleared the FCC with models for Australia, the USA, Canada, England and more all declared in the filing. There isn’t a lot more detail in the filing at this stage.

Apart from the new name and device number as well as the presence of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth we can’t see any major changes in the new device. The overall design and proportions of the device remain the same.

While we’re glad to see a new Smart Clock getting read for the market, we would have hoped to see wider adoption this far into the game.
