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

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.
