LG Win Three CES Awards: (LG 55LM8600, LG 55LM9600)

CES 2012 is still two months away, but the 2012 CES Innovations Awards have already been announced.

Five awards were given out in the Video Displays category, and LG won three awards for their new HDTVs.

The winning HDTVs have yet to be officially announced by LG, but due to this exposure the model names along with one photo have been leaked.

The three winners of the award are the LG 55LM8600, LG 55LM9600, and the LG PM9700 Plasma 3D Smart TV. As you would expect from unannounced HDTVs, there is currently very little information to go on. But judging from the photo, they look amazing, with an incredibly thin bezel which makes it look like the image is just floating there.

Using standard HDTV naming schemes (Size – model series) we know that the LG 55LM9600 is a 55-inch HDTV, and that it also uses LG’s new Nano Full LED technology, which enables it’s ultra slim bezel

The LG 55LM8600 is also a 55-inch LED HDTV which also has a very slim bezel, but doesn’t have the Nano Full LED technology found in the LG LM9600 series.
