LG's latest Smart TVs to include NFC and Miracast compatibility

Not content with waiting until next week to unveil CES bound products, LG has pulled the wraps off some of their latest Smart TV's. We already know that LG is taking some new Google TV hardware to Las Vegas, but these TV sets aren't those. But, despite lacking a direct Android connection, they still give us cause for interest. 

Android Central @ CES

The new LG Cinema 3D range includes this rather handsome looking edge-to-edge display, but there's a couple of standout features included. The new TVs will come with NFC compatibility, and Miracast. The sets will come with an NFC sticker that makes it easy to pair with an NFC capable smartphone, allowing for hassle free pairing and streaming of content from your mobile devices.

And that streaming will include the use of Miracast technology. While still in its infancy, it's still great to see LG including the technology in their new TV sets. After all, they did make the Nexus 4.

  • Is the girl included in the set??
  • prolly a doll
  • I wish...
  • +9000
  • Lets be honest, no one is looking at the TV.
  • +9000 lol How can you?
  • LG always has the hottest girls to "show off" their products. Can't wait to drag the TV set to a gas station to pay for something using NFC : P
  • Is she holding a mackerel or a remote.
  • oh you hehehehe
  • damn thats pretty
  • A cigarette commercial on the two TVs in the background. Been a long time since those were seen in the USA.
  • Uhhhh.... that's definitely the sponsor logos on a race car, and the same image on two TVs...
  • Still a commercial advertising Camels...
  • How do you know it's a commercial? Could it not just as easily be a televised race like the Indy 500? Is it so hard to believe that the camera crews would be able to zoom in on the chassis of the vehicle and see that much detail when the car is in, say, a pit stop?
    How do you know it's "advertising" Camels? Just because a certain brand of something pops up on a show does not mean it is specifically being advertised. Also, by your own logic, they would have to be "advertising" Sega as well, since that logo is clearly shown beneath the Camel logo. I suppose it's also a commercial for Sega then too, hmmm?
  • I did not make it to the background images :)
  • Looks like the logo on a formula 1 car. Not a commercial.
  • It's a Williams Renault FW15C. Formula 1 cars aren't allowed to have cigarette sponsors on TV anymore.
  • I could not concentrate on the beauty of the tv hard to choose..LG if i buy this t.v. can you give me her number?
  • Ah...miracast. It's like a unicorn.
    I have it on my Nexus 4 but nothing else. Can someone please tell me the easist way to connect my Nexus 4 with my Sony Bravia EX720? :(
  • hop on Amazon and pick up a Miracast dongle. Plug it into your tv's HDMI and voila! :)
  • That lack of a bezel.
  • This is the only thing I can even concentrate on. It's like...JUST the screen.
  • When will people learn. #d is a fad is will soon fall off completely when people realize how much damage they are doing to not only their eyes and brains but their kids as well.
  • Any proof to this?
  • Waiting for proof... or was that sarcasm? or FUD?
  • double post...
  • And yet we've had TVs for 6 or so decades, and the only damage done is how stupid the *content* is getting (Jersey Shore, anyone?). If you want to blame human afflictions on technology, look no further than Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and computers. Heck, I've seen more news on the eye strain many people experience from staring at computer screens all day than the "damage" looking at TV screens do.
    Clearly, you are spreading FUD, especially with no proof of this supposed damage TV is causing.
  • Sorry for the late reply. You know the pesky real world jobs. Here is a link to a study that was done a few years ago and is being repeated again. With more then one child with eye problems I make sure to do my research which it seems most of you dont do. As this info is easily found. http://io9.com/5477698/science-proves-3+d-movies-hurt-your-brain
  • My apologies. I did not connect your earlier mention of "#d" with "3D", mistook it as a really weird typo, and thought you were generalizing TV in it's entirety. That's where the confusion/misunderstanding occurred.
  • Has anyone noticed how as TV's get smarter, the people watching them get dumber?
    Just saying that a couple of years ago you had to be smart to work the smart features, now the smart features are so easy that we can't figure them out.
  • Name of girl?
  • If only money COULD buy me love...oh, well, guess I'll just have to settle for the soon-to-be-outdated tech gadget instead.
  • Oops, double post.
  • That set is not 3D, Certainly Double D I'd say.
  • Why can't they firmware update my EXISTING set which is only a year old and already supports WiDi and streaming to support Miracast? Answer - they want to force you to buy a whole new TV set. Last time I buy an LG panel. It's a non-stop gong show of things like this - pulling the Amazon app, breaking Plex support.. LG has no idea how to run an app platform.
  • Nice tv.. cute girl..
  • why would a TV needs NFC for? TV talking to TV or TV talking with the phone?
  • I believe that NFC will give you options similar to what Nexus Q could offer. Probably you'll be able to transfer content from your phone to the TV, so possible rented movies streaming, pictures slideshows, music etc??
  • My guess? It's used for the pairing process for miracast since the article specifically states it, "The sets will come with an NFC sticker that makes it easy to pair with an NFC capable smartphone, allowing for hassle free pairing and streaming of content from your mobile devices."
