It sure looks like the Lenovo Smart Clock is launching soon

What you need to know

  • Lenovo has published new documents for the Smart Clock on its official forums.
  • The Smart Clock was announced back at CES 2019 in January.
  • It'll cost $80 when it goes on sale.

Back at CES 2019, Lenovo announced the Smart Clock -- a super tiny smart display with a 4-inch screen designed to be the perfect modern alarm clock. After months of not hearing a word from Lenovo, it looks like the company is finally getting ready to launch the gadget.

If you take a look at the official Lenovo Forums (opens in new tab), you'll see that it's been updated with a lot more information regarding the Smart Clock. Some of this includes an FAQ section, user guide, and a spec sheet.

While the updated forums don't provide a specific launch date, it is a big indication that Lenovo's getting things in place for when it does hit store shelves.

On a similar note, Lenovo recently told Droid Life that the Smart Clock would be launching "in the next couple of weeks."

I personally think the Google Nest Hub (opens in new tab) already makes for a great nightstand display, but I do see the appeal of an even smaller form factor. If you know you want a smart display but only plan on using it for basic things like setting alarms, asking about the weather, and checking your calendar, this seems like a pretty solid option.

When you can finally buy the Lenovo Smart Clock (which we're guessing will be real soon), it'll only set you back $80.

  • I already have the Insignia smart speaker that I got for free from Best Buy for buying a $30 blender 2 years ago. It has every feature the Lenovo Smart Clock has. The Insignia speaker is in stereo, so I would say it's better than the Lenovo.
  • A few points here. First, how can you know that what you have is better than something that hasn't been released? I have the Insignia speaker as well, and it is terrible. It often does not hear me very well due to the poor microphone. The sound on that speaker is slightly better than a Google Home Mini at best. the Lenovo Smart Clock has a display, so that means it does not have all the same features. It should also have some more options if you have ever read anything about it, so that would give it more things to make it different than the Insignia speaker. I just want to point out that it is very strange that you wrote a post to say your free speaker you got with a blender is better than a new, different device you have never seen or used.
  • I think you got a bad one.. I loved our bedroom one so much that I got one for each of my 3 kids in their room. It has the perfect level of hearing.. not too sensitive where it triggers a lot of false activations, but I don't have to yell to get it to listen either. I think they sound better than the actual google home we have in the hallway.
  • I also have one. But I bought mine I actually hate it because it's microphone seems to be weak or something because it often miss understands me with or without music playing. I don't have this problem with any of my other Google home products just this.
