LG announces two new Google TV models prior to the upcoming 2013 International CES. The LG GA7900 and GA6400.
The GA7900 is the higher end of the two and will come in 47- and 55-inch versions. Both were designed with a minimized bezel to give the impression of a borderless display. Meanwhile, the GA6400 will be offered in 42-, 47-, 50-, 55- and 60-inch models.
LG says the revamped Smart Home screen provides easier access to on-demand video content, such as HBO Go, YouTube and other apps, which can be organized in folders. A new My Interest Card also displays real-time information, such as weather and personalized news.
All the TVs will ship with LG’s redesigned Magic Remote, which has an integrated microphone so users can search for content using Google TV’s voice search capabilities. You can also perform searches with the built-in physical keyboard.
Android users will have the extra advantage of being able to send video clips from their smartphone or tablet to the TV via Wi-Fi. The GA7900 and GA6400 also support OnLive’s cloud-based gaming platform.
