  • LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 01 1024x683 LG Takes On JBL With XBOOM Smart Display

The whole smart display measures in at 370 x 244 x 145mm, so while it's not necessarily tiny, it might not be the biggest thing on your kitchen counter, either.

Although its retail price is $299.99, LG has confirmed the WK9 will be on sale for a more palatable $199.99 on Black Friday - though the list of retailers selling the smart display has yet to be confirmed.

Smart speakers and smart displays are slowly making their way to the market and especially our homes.

"Our partnerships with Google and Meridian Audio allow us to offer a new home entertainment experience with the smart capabilities of the Google Assistant and the premium audio know-how that only Meridian could deliver", said LG's Seo Young-jae. It's outfitted with an 8-inch touchscreen and a 5MP camera for video calls, and aside from the IoT functionality Google Assistant unlocks, it'll also play nice with LG's line up of ThinQ devices.

ATP Finals: Djokovic Overcomes Zverev Hurdle
On the second, he slowed things down, took a deep breath, bounced the ball 17 times-and 11 more on the second serve-and held, 5-4. The world No 5 began to crank through the gears in the second set earning break points on four consecutive Cilic service games.

The speakers are both front facing and offer 20W of stereo power - making this the most powerful smart speaker now on the market, according to LG.

That focus on sound quality, of course, comes with a price. That would be a great discount if we could actually buy it - even though LG says that it's coming to the USA first and other regions around the world after, it doesn't seem to be available just yet.

The device will cost around $300 on most days, but for the holidays, LG appears to be discounting it to $200.
