LG is embedding artificial intelligence (AI) functionality into its 2018 smart TV line, letting consumers use their TVs as smart-home hubs.
The ThinQ technology will let customers speak directly into their TV’s remote control to enable voice assistant technology.It will also allow users to access other smart home products such as robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, air purifiers, smart lights, smart speakers and other connected devices.
LG’s newest α (Alpha) 9 processor, meanwhile, will also be included in the new line-up of TVs, which will be demoed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.
“As a leading innovator in the TV industry, LG is pleased to introduce the LG ThinQ and α (Alpha) 9 processor for an unrivaled viewing experience,” said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA.
“LG is dedicated to providing cutting-edge technology that elevates user lifestyles and offers unmatched convenience. In 2018, our ‘Best TV Ever’ gets even better.”
