Earlier in the week, we saw the first of the next generation of Google Assistant devices with the Lenovo Smart Display. This brings a new dynamic of a touchscreen interface to Google’s AI. When the smart displays were announced back at CES 2018, JBL was also listed as a partner and showed off their version of this new form of speakers. Well, today we now have an official pre-order landing page with a release date of September 3rd.
JBL seems to leverage their history with premium sound, and with that, are setting the start price at a slightly higher scale for the JBL Link View. The 8-inch display will begin at $249 where Lenovo has set their model at $199. JBL is promising “legendary sound” with the Link View. We had a positive experience with the JBL Link speakers without a screen and have faith that the Link View will add a higher quality listening experience to Google’s new ecosystem.
