# What is the difference between new Object() and object literal notation in JavaScript?

JavascriptFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

Both new Object() notation and Object literal({}) notations do the same thing. They initialize an object. However, the second notation can be a little different if you start adding properties to it.

## Example

let a = {
name: 'Ayush'
}

This initialization is equivalent to −

let a = new Object();
a.name = 'Ayush'

or

let a = {}
a.name = 'Ayush'
