At IFA 2018, LG will be unveiling the LG TONE Platinum SE (model HBS-1120) with a dedicated Google Assistant button, and the LG TONE Ultra SE (model HBS-835S) featuring an external speaker.
The Best Google Assistant Headphones
The LG TONE Platinum SE is the first TONE model to offer Google Assistant and real time translation at the press of a button with Google Translate. You can activate Google Assistant without having to first say “OK Google” for access to faster, more responsive AI. This is pretty awesome for when you’re trying to use something like Google Translate. Without the need to always invoke an awkward trigger phrase, communicating in another language is faster and more natural.
It also comes with a balanced armature and a dynamic driver. The balanced armature unit generates clear high-frequency sound, while the dynamic drivers deliver a robust bass.The LG TONE Platinum SE is available in black, blue and gold.
Make Calls Even in Noisy Places with the LG TONE Ultra SE
Another new device, the LG TONE Ultra SE, features an external mono speaker in addition to the earbuds. With the external speaker, you can make calls and listen to music without blocking out ambient sounds, ideal for when you need to be aware of your surroundings. Both the LG TONE Platinum SE and LG TONE Ultra SE feature dual MEMS microphone for excellent call clarity and support for the Tone & Talk smartphone app.
