LG are reportedly ready to unleash their next-generation of Google TVs in the US market this weekend, with the company yet to officially confirm release details like pricing, models, and so forth, but analysts with the Korean financial firm Shinhan Investment claiming that the first devices could arrive any day now.




LG's latest sets were previewed at CES just a few months ago, and they are some of the first Google TV-based sets to support 3D content. The new Google TVs will follow LG's previous models, which feature passive 3D glasses rather than the more expensive active-shutter frames.


Other rumors circling is that LG could be working with Google directly to develop a Nexus-branded Google TV set. This would be a huge release, as it would follow their strategy of Nexus-branded smartphones being the Google default device for the other devices to aim to be. The new LG 3D LED TVs are said to be made available in both 47- and 55-inch sizes with pricing of $1,600 and $2,100, respectively.
