HIGHLIGHTS
  • Google Nest Hub is currently available in the US at $129
  • It was launched as Google’s first smart display last year
  • Rival Amazon Echo Show 5 is available at Rs. 8,999

Google Nest Hub, which was originally called the Google Home Hub, is set to launch in India as early as next week, according to a report. The smart home display that is powered by Google Assistant is said to carry a price tag of Rs. 8,999 in the Indian market. The search giant unveiled the Nest Hub as its first smart display to counter the Amazon Echo Show that was launched back in May 2017 to offer voice assistant access through a touchscreen panel.

Tipster Ishan Agarwal in collaboration with MySmartPrice reports that the Google Nest Hub will launch in India in a week or so with a price tag of Rs. 8,999. The reported price is even cheaper than what’s available in the US as the device is currently on sale through Google Store at $129 (roughly Rs. 9,200).

Google unveiled the Nest Hub as the Home Hub back in October last year. However, it rebranded the Google Home smart home devices at the I/O 2019 developer conference this year and put them under the Nest brand. The Home Hub, thus, transformed into the Nest Hub. The company also brought a new variant of its smart display that it calls the Nest Hub Max.
