LG has announced two new Google TVs for release in 2013 that will include QWERTY remote controls and natural speech recognition.
Following last year's singular G2 Google TV, the company is offering the GA7900 (55-inch, 47-inch) and the GA6400 (60-inch down to 42-inch).
Both televisions have QWERTY motion remote controls with an integrated mic for "natural" voice commands. The design will be different from the new Motion Remotes announced in late December but will likely resemble the reversible slab that shipped with the G2. Passive Cinema 3D will also be part of both models.
The top-of-the-line GA7900 features an edge-lit LED with local dimming and a 240Hz refresh rate, which likely includes backlight scanning as in previous years' models. As a counter to this, the GA6400 is simply edge-lit and includes a lower 120Hz refresh. As far as the information we have been provided is concerned, these are the main differences between the two products.
Google TV now uses a version of Honeycomb 3.2, which enables users to use tablet and smartphone apps on their TV.
