New TVs feature dual-core chipset, 3D, Google UI

LG is showing off its new line of G2 Google TV models in New York this week. The smart TVs feature redesigned user interfaces and beefed-up internals to make for a smoother Web-browsing and television experience. The new sets feature LG's new L9 dual-core chipset, which is based on ARM architecture, and a quad-core GPU.

The sets will ship with the G2 Magic Remote, which features a QWERTY keyboard, and gesture and voice recognition. The sets are also capable of displaying 3D content using passive 3D glasses instead of active-shutter frames. Each TV ships with six pairs of 3D glasses.

The user interface for the G2 has been reworked to focus on content selection and browsing. The sets are capable of multi-tasking, allowing users to search the Internet and connect to social networks while watching television.

The LG Smart TV with Google TV G2 series will go on sale later in May, with a 47-inch model and 55-inch model priced at $1,700 and $2,300, respectively.
