ARCHOS Hello Smart Display now official ahead of MWC
French company ARCHOS is joining the likes of Google, Amazon, and Apple with not a smart speaker, but a smart display. At CES 2018, Google announced the new breed of home smart devices, with Lenovo’s Smart Display being among the first.
The ARCHOS Hello Smart Display is powered by Android 8.0 Oreo equipped with Google Assistant. It comes in 7-inch and 8.4-inch touch display sizes, is powered by a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.
You will be able to do all the things you can usually do with a Google Assistant-powered smart device like play music and ask questions, but now that you have a screen, you can actually watch videos on the device itself, or even make video calls with the built-in 5MP front-facing camera.
The ARCHOS Hello is priced at $160 (~Php8.2k) for the 7-inch model, while the 8.4-inch model will cost $222 ~(Php11.5k). It will be available this summer in selected markets.
