It will join LG’s model at CES along with a whole host of other smart TVs that will be debuting there from manufacturers such as Samsung and Sony.

It comes equipped with a 5 megapixel webcam, SD card storage, 1GB RAM and will be run by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It will also be accompanied by a touchscreen remote control featuring an integrated microphone and voice control functions.
