New HDTV design shown ahead of CES
LG has released some details on its oncoming Google TV hardware refresh and range extension, set for the first half of 2013. The original 47-inch and 55-inch televisions already in the range has been joined by three more size options, as well as a refreshed physical design, and an upgrade to its onboard software to Google TV 3.0.
Standing on distinctive legs and housed in an almost borderless surround, the new sizes include a smaller 42-inch screen, a 50-inch version that sits at the middle of the range, and a new-largest 60-inch model. The HDTVs use both gestures and a Qwerty remote control, and offers access to various apps, including streaming gaming service OnLive, YouTube, and a digital TV guide.
More details will be revealed by LG during CES in Las Vegas next month.
