Reportedly, the Google Nest Hub smart screen is ready to be launched in India next week. Developed by Google Assistant, the device was originally launched by Google in 2017 and is currently on sale in the Google Store for $ 129 (around Rs. 9,200). According to the tipster Ishan Agarwal ( @ ishanagarwal24 ) will be priced at Rs. 8,999 in the Indian market.
The launch of the Nest Hub in India is not exactly surprising, given that Google had officially announced plans to launch it in twelve new markets, including India. The announcement was made at the Google I / O 2019 developer conference, where the company also announced a newer and larger variant called Nest Hub Max, with a 10-inch panel instead of the 7-inch screen in the Nest Standard hub. The larger device is priced higher than $ 229, but it also comes with a built-in woofer, stereo speakers and a 6.5 megapixel camera.
However, in terms of functionality, the two devices are quite similar, since both work with Google Assistant and come with preloaded Google applications, including YouTube. Currently, the Max Hub is only available in the US. UU., The United Kingdom and Australia, and it is not known when it will be launched in India and other international markets.
As noted by MySmartPrice, Nest Hub will compete directly against the Amazon Echo Show smart screen, which is also priced at exactly Rs. 8,999 in India. As expected, it comes with the company's Alexa voice assistant, but offers only a 5.5-inch panel instead of the 7-inch screen found in the Nest Hub.
