Lenovo Launches Smart TV In China With Snapdragon S4 CPU

Lenovo has rolled out a new range of Smart TV known as the K-series at a press conference earlier today in Beijing, China, as part of the company's drive to deliver products using all four screens. The screens were already on preview at CES 2012 earlier this year.

Four TV sets have been unveiled, the 55-inch K91 and K81 and the 42-inch K81 and K71 models which will be available from 6,500 yuans (around £650) to 14.999 yuans (around £1,500).

Lenovo's smart TV come with a dual core Qualcomm processor clocked at 1.5GHz (possibly an S4 MSM8960) with Android Ice Cream Sandwich at its core.

It has a user interface that brings together touch, voice, air mouse, gravity sensor, a smart keyboard and a traditional television remote control into what Lenovo calls a "six in one" smart remote controller.

There's also a service that provides with more than 300,000 hours of customised online HD video resources as well as an open platform called Le Store that allows app developer to thrive.

Lenovo says that more than 1,000 custom apps have been developed covering games, education, social networking services and more.

The TV sets will go on sale in China from May onwards and Lenovo has yet to confirm whether they will be available to other territories.
