Amazon to start its biggest Black Friday sale yet on 16 November

Google Home Hub Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

New details have emerged about the Google Home Hub, thought to arrive at a special hardware event on 9 October. Here's what we know about the release date, price and specifications of Google's imminent smart display.

Google might have the better smart speaker, but Amazon's Echo family leads the market. While Google last year announced its Google Home Mini and Google Home Max, Amazon still has more devices - and at the end of September 2018 it unveiled even more. It's time for Google to fight back, and it's about to do exactly that with Google Home Hub.

Best thought of as Google's answer to the original Echo Show, Google Home Hub is expected to feature a 7in touchscreen display. It would have been a direct rival had Amazon not just announced its new 10in version, which goes on sale on 11 October.

When is Google Home Hub coming out?
Google revealed the concept of a smart display with integrated Google Assistant back in January at CES 2018, and devices from Lenovo, LG, JBL and Sony have all been confirmed. Google's own version, designed to set the standard, will arrive before Christmas, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

That means we will almost certainly hear more during Google's annual hardware event, which takes place on 9 October at 4pm BST. We'll bring you full details on how to watch nearer the time.

How much will Google Home Hub cost?
We would expect a price roughly in line with the original Echo Show, which costs £199.99. The second-generation with larger screen has seen a price rise to £219.99, so we doubt Google would want to go any higher than this - especially if the company hopes to ship 3 million units before Christmas as sources suggest.

Google Home Hub rumoured specifications

Google's own smart display is expected to feature a 7in touchscreen and a relatively large speaker. MySmartPrice has discovered a series of screenshots and renders that give away more information about the device, including its specifications. 
  • 7in touchscreen display
  • Dual-band 802.11b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth support
  • 15W power adaptor
  • Full-range speaker for crystal clear sound
  • Far-field voice recognition supports hands-free use
  • Ambient light and colour sensor
  • DC power jack
  • Chalk/Charcoal colour options
  • 67.3x178.5x118mm
  • 480g
  • 1.5m power cable

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
