“Our goal has never been to simply build smart home devices for the sake of advancing technology alone,” says Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice president, PC & Smart Device Business Group. “In the same way a person’s IQ is measured by applied knowledge, we believe products are ‘smart’ to the degree they’re actually understood and applied to daily life by their users.”

Lenovo Smart Assistant starts at $129.99 while Lenovo Smart Assistant Harman Kardon Edition starts at $179.99.

In Light Gray, Green and Orange colours these will be available in the market from May 2017.
