For those who want a compact voice assistant, the Lenovo Smart Display 7 is compact and flexible, blending anywhere while offering all the Assistant visual features you'd expect on a smart display, on a 7-inch SD touchscreen.
Despite its small size, the Smart Display 7 still delivers the same functionality of previous display, allowing users to stream music, watch videos, control their smart home devices, browse photos, make video calls, check the weather and the traffic, as well as ask The Google Assistant for answers and advice. The Lenovo Smart Display 7 delivers a scaled down version of the 10-inch original that has been created to fit in rooms where space is at a premium. I wish there were some color options here besides white plastic with grey speaker fabric, but at least it'll blend with most home decor. The device now features an improved front-facing speaker, moving away from the quirky design of the original Smart Display.
The Smart Display 7's screen is a seven inch IPS touch panel with resolution of 1024 x 600, making it slightly bigger than Amazon's latest screen-packing Echo, the Amazon Echo Show 5.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the Lenovo Smart Tab M8 on the rear packs 5-megapixel camera.

Valve announces Steam Library update beta
After years of settling for serviceable, Valve is finally updating Steam's interface to something a little spiffier. Either way we're keen to check this out - as the ol' Steam library hasn't changed in years.
With the Lenovo Smart Tab M8, families finally have a quintessential multiple-use household device-a shareable tablet for adults and kids that also doubles as an always-on smart home hub.
The Lenovo Smart Display 7 will be available from October 2019 and will be priced at €129.
Launching in September for $249 is the Yoga Smart Tab, a more powerful Android-powered tablet with Google Assistant. It might only have 2 GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but for $120, that's an incredible value for a smart display that you can pull into bed for a lazy Saturday morning of Hulu.
Thanks to Google's new Ambient Mode features for the Assistant, the tablets will display useful information on the screen based on what the Assistant knows about you while docked. Of note, you'll need a Lenovo-made "Smart Charging Station" to convert the Smart Tab M8 into a smart home gadget. Lenovo also added front-facing left and right speakers for stereo separation, housed in a larger chamber to deliver more audio resonance.
