The Lenovo Smart Clock is a small device with a 4 inch touchscreen display, a speaker, and a microphone. It’s basically a Google Assistant-powered alarm clock — and with an $80 price tag, it’s about $50 cheaper than Amazon’s smallest smart display.
Lenovo first unveiled the Smart Clock at CES in January, but now it’s available for purchase from Lenovo and a few other retailers.
The device features a 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT817S quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.
The display has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, which is fine for a glorified alarm clock… and might even be sufficient for viewing photos, videos, or other content on a 4 inch screen that’s rarely going to be as close to your eyes as a smartphone.
Other features include a 3 watt speaker, volume and mic mute buttons, and a USB port (so you can plug in your phone or other gadgets to charge — it’s not used for data).
One feature the Lenovo Smart Clock doesn’t have? A camera. That’s probably a good move for a device that’s likely to hang out in your bedroom.
