For quite some time we've been tracking a second smart display from Google, and today we have further evidence that it's really in the works. A blur on the Google Store spotted today reveals a product called Nest Hub Max as and a 10-inch smart display.
The Android Market Android Police the Google Store Connected Home page currently mentions a product called "Nest Hub Max."
This page describes this as a device with a 10-inch HD display, stereo speakers, and a built-in camera for Duo calls. These are all missing from the smaller Home Hub, which has a 7-inch display we described as "cute," lesser speakers, and no camera
More interestingly, Google also says that it has a built-in Nest Cam for motion and sound alerts. Also note of the Nest Hub Max is a Google Hub Hub listing, further hinting this is a Google Display smart display.
Presumably, this is the device we previously spotted which is referred to as "Sherlock", which runs on a similar chipset to the smaller Google Home Hub. Furthermore, the display description also lines with the 10-inch 1280×800 display on that device. We have also discovered that this product would include a 12MP Sony IMX277 camera sensor on board, which is in fact a higher resolution than any other Nest camera
Still, there is plenty of skepticism to be with this product. The name "Nest Hub Max" could be very confusing alongside Google's current 'Home Max' and 'Home Hub' branding, and also contradicts the tip we've received last year suggesting Google is planning a rebrand of Nest altogether
Further, it's it is possible that this is simply a mistake or a joke from a web dev. The screen size mention, however, does not support this reflecting a real product, as nothing else in the current hardware lineup of Google matches that screen size.
