Recently, LG has announced its new AI powered brand, ThinQ. LG ThinQ Speaker's High Resolution Audio is compatible with high quality lossless files, giving it the ability to faithfully recreate sounds that were originally recorded in the studio.

According to reports, the speaker can also be used to control and order LG's various smart home appliances such as the LG air purifier, the thermostat, smart lamp and many others.

The entire lineup should be showcased at the CES 2018 show which kicks off in Las Vegas on January 8th. Among this new line of new devices is the Chromecast-enabled Dolby Atmos soundbar, a smart speaker with Google Assistant built in, and a few portable Bluetooth speakers. The company has announced the new entries to its ThinQ speaker setup including a new smart assistant-powered tabletop speaker, although sans a personal assistant of its own. The LG ThinQ Speaker is powered by Google Assistant. The company has also personally worked with Google in the development of the speaker.

Suspect detained after St. Petersburg supermarket blast
Spokeswoman for the Investigative Committee Svetlana Petrenko said that investigators had begun questioning the suspect. Eight people remain hospitalized after a device exploded Wednesday in a storage area for customers' bags.


Just having things around that make sound isn't good enough anymore. This means that the speaker will not only provide all the well-known Google Assistant functionalities but also offer a voice-based personalised interface for the LG ThinQ product range.

LG's take on the platform looks interesting but we'll have to wait for CES 2018 to find out more about the ThinQ smart speaker.

We will also be seeing all-in-one party machines from LG soon, for karaoke parties offering lighting effects as well. Pricing and availability details should follow. LG is confident that the amount of technology it has introduced into its audio products will definitely impress audiences.
