Lenovo launching Android-based smart TVs
While Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is widely used in the latest smartphones and tablets, the Lenovo K-series smart TVs are probably the pioneers for the OS being on big screens. Some highlights of the smart TV functions include an app store that offers video-on-demand apps, as well as a slew of advanced control options. Besides remote control apps, there’s also voice-recognition and motion-sensing provided by a game controller and a regular remote.
To provide a better user experience, the Chinese company is equipping these panels with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and integrated Wi-Fi. All four models are 3D-compatible and sport an LED panel with a full-HD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, except for the flagship 55K91 which features a faster 240Hz screen. According to Engadget, these smart TVs will retail from US$1,030 and are now available in China. However, they’re unlikely to be sold in other countries in Asia.
