Lenovo Smart Clock 2 With Wireless Charging Dock, Google Assistant Launched
Lenovo Smart Clock 2 with Google Assistant has just been launched. The Smart Clock 2 offers an optional wireless smartphone charger that provides an ambient light on the clock’s base while docked. The Chinese tech giant claims that Lenovo Smart Clock 2 is made from recycled, soft-touch fabric is offered in three colour variants. The clock also comes with a 4-inch touchscreen that shows the time, weather, and a slideshow of images from Google Photos from the connected smartphone. Lenovo Smart Clock 2 also doubles up as a smart speaker.
Lenovo on Monday announced the upcoming Lenovo Smart Clock 2. The smart clock will be available to purchase starting August 2021. Lenovo’s US website lists the Smart Clock 2 to be ‘Coming Soon.’ However, the tech giant has revealed in a press release that the smart clock is priced at EUR 89.99 (roughly Rs. 8,000). It will be offered in three colour options — Abyss Blue, Heather Grey, and Shadow Black. There is no information when Lenovo Smart Clock 2 will be available in India.
The recently launched Lenovo Smart Clock 2 features an angled 4-inch touchscreen display that shows vital information such as the time, weather, and a slideshow of images from Google Photos. The body is wrapped in a recycled, soft-touch fabric and houses two buttons at the top that controls the volume for the front-firing, 3W speakers. The bottom part of the speaker sports a power jack and a microphone mute switch.
Lenovo Smart Clock 2 hasn’t gotten rid of a USB Type-A port completely. Users can purchase an additional 10W wireless charging dock that houses the USB Type-A port and provides an ambient night light. The dock connects to the Smart Clock 2 via pogo pins. Once the dock is connected, the Smart Clock 2 acts as a night light, stereo radio, charging pad, and a bedside assistant – powered by Google Assistant.
Under the hood, the Smart Clock 2 is powered by a MediaTek MT8167S paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. Lenovo Smart Clock 2 is larger than any of its predecessors — Lenovo Smart Clock and Lenovo Smart Clock Essential — measuring at 113.48×93.3×71.33mm and weighs 298 grams without the wireless charging dock. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, 2.4GHz, and Bluetooth v4.2. It also comes with a light sensor and an accelerometer.
