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
