Lenovo introduced its 1st Wise Clock back again in 2019, and it is even now 1 of the finest Google Assistant sensible displays to grace our nightstands. But the king is shedding its crown, as Lenovo just introduced the impressive Smart Screen 2. Now with an add-on wireless charging foundation for your cellular phone and far better vehicle-brightness configurations, it appears to be downright amazing.
At a glance, the Intelligent Clock 2 appears nearly similar to its predecessor. It continue to has a 4-inch touchscreen display screen, integrated volume and microphone mute buttons, and delicate-touch finish, but with a somewhat thicker foundation that brings the screen more from your desk or nightstand for much more comfortable viewing angles. It even has the same MediaTek MT8167S processor as the very first Sensible Clock! The massive offering position in this article is, of class, the Wireless Charging Dock and enhanced car-brightness options.
Lenovo’s new Wireless Charging Dock, obtainable in a bundle with the Intelligent Display, pulls power from the Good Screen (removing the have to have for an additional ability cable) and gives a fashionable surface area to spot your cellphone right before bed. To our surprise, this charging station supports 10-watt speeds (a rarity for integrated wi-fi chargers) and has a built-in magnet for MagSafe iPhones.
In our review of the very first-gen Smart Exhibit, we complained that its car-brightness configurations require to be activated manually and may possibly not get darkish sufficient for some sleepers. Lenovo obviously took this complaint to heart, as the Wise Screen 2 attributes a “Nightlight” manner that provides the show to a at ease 31 lumens. Regrettably, Lenovo says that this characteristic only operates when you pair the Good Display screen with a Wireless Charging Dock (a stipulation that doesn’t make substantially sense).
Pricing and availability for the Lenovo Intelligent Clock 2 remain unannounced, nevertheless Lenovo will promote the show in grey, blue, and black colorways. For what it is worthy of, the 1st Clever Clock launched at $80 and now costs just $50 at Best Buy. Lenovo also sells a smaller Good Clock Vital for $40.
