LG Electronics (LG) has held the Middle Eastern launch of its new SMART TV lineup at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Dubai. The 2013 SMART TV lineup offers easier content access and sharing along with an updated Magic Remote for a simplified, intuitive user experience, along with the ubiquitous flagship giant, in this case the 55" LA8600, which also features magic Remote Voice control and an AED 11,999 price tag.
Of particular interest to potential buyers in the region will be the local apps the TVs feature. Smart apps in Arabic include ADMC Sport, Shoof Al Kass for all the latest Qatari football news, LBC, Al Aan TV and the eTarab digital jukebox. English speaking viewers, meanwhile, can take advantage of apps including Time Out Dubai, Sport 360 and City 7 TV News.
