LG 2013 HDTV Lineup
LG have just revealed their entire 2013 HDTV lineup ahead of CES 2013.
We’re used to some information coming out way before CES, but never an entire lineup, either way, here it is!
All of the 2013 LG LCD HDTVs are now LED lit, gone are the older CCFL backlit models. There are also fewer plasma HDTVs this year, just three series, and five models.
There are 11 Smart TV series resulting in 26 models, and 5 LED LCD series consisting of 13 new models.
Many of the new models are “Cinema Screen” models with a “borderless” design. The bezel / border is indeed extremely slim, making it almost invisiable. The Smart TVs features have also been upgraded and updated.
Update: Also be sure to view the 2013 LG comparison database for easy feature / specification comparison.
We have already seen their 84-Inch Ultra HD TV, but now they will be adding 4k to smaller screen sizes of 65-inchs and 55-Inches.
LGs 2013 Smart TV features have been upgraded with a 120% faster CPU and 300% faster GPU, speeding up the apps and graphical interface. LG also say that the Smart TV experience and been much improved. They have also added speech recognition support and a new Magic Remote.
