JBL’s Google-powered smart display is available for preorder

The $250 Link View ships September 3rd.

Another Google Assistant-powered smart display is on the way, as JBL has now made its Link View available for preorder. First announced at CES earlier this year, the JBL Link View follows the release of Lenovo's Google Assistant-powered Smart Display -- you can check out our review here. The JBL Link View has an eight-inch display and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The display is also splash proof and comes with two front-facing 10W speakers, a rear-facing passive radiator for deeper bass and 24-bit HD audio streaming, resulting in JBL's "legendary sound," as the company puts it.

A number of companies showed off their Echo Show and Echo Spot competitors during CES this year. Along with JBL and Lenovo, LG unveiled its smart display as well. The JBL Link View is priced at $250 and is expected to ship September 3rd.
