Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.
In 2014, Philips will introduce its first TV with the new Android-based Smart TV platform. They will also launch Ultra HD TVs and TVs with twin tuners, Miracast screen mirroring and a new Cloud TV app that streams TV channels over the internet.

LG’s full 2012 TV line-up will be unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas this January but yesterday model names and photos of these gorgeous-looking TVs leaked to FlatpanelsHD. LG plans to call their two new high-end Cinema 3D LED models LM9600 and LM8600 and their new high-end plasma-TV PM9700.

LG’s 2012 high-end TVs seem to have leaked ahead of the CES 2012 exhibition in January. And LG certainly seems to have created a range of beautiful new TVs.

LG Nano LM9600

The flagship model will be called LM9600 and features Cinema 3D (passive 3D), Smart TV (NetFlix, Hulu Plus, 3D Zone etc.), Full Nano LED and 2D-to-3D upconversion. Our sources mention a 55-inch 55LM9600 model - and it looks stunning.

The step-down model is called LM8600 and features a similar Borderless design, Cinema 3D and Smart TV. We are not sure if also this TV features Nano LED technology. A 55-inch model called 55LM8600 is mentioned by our sources.

A new high-end plasma-TV has also leaked ahead of time and it is called PM9700. The PM9700 model comes with 3D (presumably active 3D, although not confirmed) and Smart TV functionality. With their new high-end plasma-TV LG has incorporated a slimmer design with slim bezels.

We have received references to the new models from different sources but this press release seems to confirm our findings. In the press release the TVs are awarded the “CES Innovations Awards” in the Video Display category. LG's full 2012 product line-up will be unveiled at CES 2012 in Las Vegas in January.
