If Black Friday, the December holiday season and the new year weren’t enough to get your inner techie geekyself excited, then there’s always CES. The Consumer Electronics Show or CES is quite possibly the largest consumer exhibition related to technology and the latest in gadgets and devices. Held annually in January at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, CES has become the place to be to see what new devices and gadgets we can expect for the coming year.
The company is getting ready to announce their new lineup of OLED TVs. This new lineup also includes a somewhat behemoth 88-inch 8K panel. That’s not all though. How would you like some assistance with your brand new OLD TV? Yes, LG has also announced that their new lineup of TVs would also be getting Google Assistant.
Over the recent years, LG has produced smart TVs with a webOS-based operating system. This included LG’s own voice assistant. Now they are stepping things up a notch to include Google Assistant, both in their OLED and “Super UHD” LCD displays. This would be under LG’s “ThinQ” AI branding.
LG seems to be offering assistance (pun intended) for both platforms. LG’s integrated assistant strategy seems to be two-fold. For example, you can use ThinQ AI for tasks related to the TV itself. This includes things like searching for a soundtrack for the currently playing movie.
In addition, countries that have access to Google Assistant can also make use of Google’s powerful tool to control more advanced elements on top of what can be controlled by ThinQ. These will include smart home devices, or basically anything else that Google Assistant can do.
In addition, LG has also stated that the ThinQ AI TVs will also have the ability to operate as a central smart home hub as well. Despite the implementation of ThinQ and Google Assistant, it’s still very possible that the new TVs will just be running webOS under all these features.
That’s not all though. Alongside the new ThinQ program, LG is also introducing a brand new image processor. Called the Alpha 9, the new image processor will debut on the same TVs that LG is launching at CES 2018.
According to LG, the new Alpha 9 processor will allow for improved noise reduction and better color performance. It will also offer support for 120 120 fps high frame rate (HFR) content. Thus far, no pricing has been released but you can be assured that it’s not going to be cheap
We will know more about LG and other products when CES 2018 kicks off from the 7th of January 2018 to the 12th of January 2018.
