Rumor has it that Google is indeed planning to make a display-equipped Home, so chances are that 2018 will see the debut of that device.

The other will sport a 10.1-inch display and will be priced at $250 (Approximately Rs 15,927). The device has a speaker on the left side, or if you stand it in portrait mode, it'll be on the bottom. It will be called JBL Link View.
