The smart display was created in collaboration with Google to ensure that the WK9 builds on the functionalities of a Google Assistant speaker with the added convenience of a touchscreen display.

LG has announced a rival to Google Home Hub and Amazon Echo Show for those who want to crack up the volume.

Offering high-fidelity sound, the XBOOM WK9 pledges crystal clear sound (for music and video chatting), with precise playback and accurate bass.

There is a 5MP camera on the front which will handle the video calls. In the United States, LG sells a wide range of innovative home appliances, home entertainment products, mobile phones, commercial displays, air conditioning systems, solar energy solutions and vehicle components. The LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 is already listed in LG's website and in B&H Photo Video. Further features include its ability to allow users to use their voice to talk to the Google Assistant at any time.

The truth about Donald Trump's Bin Laden 'prediction'
In his first tweet of 2018, Trump slammed Pakistan, saying the country has rewarded past USA aid with "nothing but lies & deceit". The US officials-in their written reply-promised "to inform President Trump about sacrifices rendered by Pakistan".

On paper, this is an impressive device that ticks all the right check boxes for a smart display or smart speaker.

The 20W speakers with Meridian technology are "the most powerful offered in a smart speaker", according to LG. It's available now at an introductory price of $199.99, $100 off its MSRP.

The LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 is its first Smart Display, and since it's a part of the South Korean electronics giant's XBOOM speakers and fets the AI ThinQ branding as well, it was natural for the device to be smart and be a relatively portable speaker. In fact, LG markets the WK9 more as a speaker that's also a smart home device, rather than the other way around. The cost of WK9 is $299.
