In a statement this week, LG has revealed that the company will unveil its new robot technology line-up during the upcoming CES 2017. The global tech show has already kicked off for the press and will be open for public starting 5th January 2017. The statement further revealed that LG is planning to unveil at least three new robots of which one is reported to be the LG HOM-BOT which is basically an automated vacuum cleaner for homes. Further, the company is also likely to introduce Hub Robot which will act as Personal Assistant as well as a smart home gateway. The Hub Robot is believed to be the potential competition to Amazon’s Echo and Google Home. Apart from the above-mentioned products, rest of the robot technologies will be for commercial uses at public places such as Airports and Hotels to facilitate traveller’s experience.
While the launch of these robot technology products is due, the South Korean giant has already announced its Super UHD (Ultra HD) series of LCD TVs. The lineup of three models called SJ9500, SJ8500 and SJ8000 all boasts Nano Cell technology. If you are not aware, Nano Cell LCD panels provide more accurate colours with wide viewing angles, claims LG. Not only this, these panels absorbs extra light wavelengths which further enables distinct and original colour reproduction.
LG said in a statement – “Nano Cell LCD displays offer a technological advantage by employing uniformly-sized particles approximately one nanometre in diameter to create more subtle, accurate colours that can be viewed from wider angles than other TVs.”
LG also claims that the new Super UHD TV lineup comes equipped with various HDR technologies including Dolby Vision, HDR10, Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG) and also ready to support the future Advanced HDR by Technicolor. The HDR Effect feature helps enhance the SDR content displayed on these TVs. Apart from display technologies, these new TV series come with LG’s webOS 3.5 pre-installed which provides easy controls to navigate across different menus and seamless interface, especially when used with the updated magic remote and magic link feature.
Brian Kwon, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company, said in the release – “Our 2017 SUPER UHD TV lineup with LG’s proprietary Nano Cell technology is a breakthrough in display technology that advances the LCD TV viewing experience to a level unlike any other.”
