LG's New Product Lineup Adds Convenience through Connectivity

By Andrew Tarantola on at

On the tenth anniversary of its CES debut, LG has just officially unveiled its 2013 product lineup. Your house is about to get a whole lot smarter with a host of intelligent appliances.

The company is focusing on developing not just smart devices but cultivating an entire smart home ecosystem. The company is rolling out One Touch Connectivity between your phone and LG's various NFC-enabled appliances, including televisions, laundry, ovens, refrigerators, even a smart robotic floor sweeper. Much of this lineup can be controlled via voice or touch commands from the user's smart phones. You'll be able to see if you do, in fact, need milk while at the grocery store, start the roast in your oven before you get home from work, or check the progress of your robotic vacuum from anywhere there's an internet connection.

What's more, LG's new gigantor 84-inch 4K will be capable of upscaling 1080p HD content to the newer, higher resolution format.

LG's new OLED television will launch in March in the US with a pricetag of £9,000 in 65 and 55-inch sizes. No word on UK pricing yet.
