After launching the Google Nest Hub in India in 2019, Google has finally launched its successor in the country. The second-generation Google Nest Hub was launched in the US and other important markets last year. The new smart display features an on-demand machine learning chip, which allows Google to transfer some of its Google Assistant capabilities from their data centres to the device, thereby enabling faster responses.
Let us take a look at the Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) specifications, features, and pricing.

The Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) price in India is ₹7,999. Interested buyers can get their hands on the device from Flipkart, Reliance Digital, and Tata CLiQ. The Nest Hub will be available through more channels across the country at a later stage.

Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) Specifications, Features
The Google Nest Hub (2nd Gen) has a 7-inch LCD screen with an edgeless glass protection, which makes it easy to clean. The display doubles as a digital photo frame. The Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) comes with an Ambient EQ light sensor on the top, which allows the display to automatically adjust to the lighting in the room.
The smart display features a 43.5mm full-range speaker, which is claimed to have a 50% improved bass response compared to its predecessor. Furthermore, the Nest Hub (2nd Gen) has 3 far-field microphones for a more accurate voice pickup.
The global variant of the device features a gesture-sensing Soli radar tech for sleep tracking, but the Indian version misses out on this feature because of government restrictions on such technologies inside consumer products.
There’s no camera on the Hub, and if you are a privacy but, you don’t need to worry about the camera tracking something. You can keep it in the private space of your home. The Nest Hub is designed with recycled materials, and its plastic mechanical parts contain 54% recycled post-consumer plastic.
