LG to release new Smart TVs with NFC and Miracast

LG has unveiled some new information about their new Smart TVs ahead of CES next week, and some of the things we’re seeing are pretty cool. While these new TVs aren’t the ones we’ll be seeing in Vegas, they’re still worth talking about.

The new LG cinema 3D range includes an edge-to-edge display, NFC, and Miracast. While most know what NFC is (Near Field Communication), Miracast is a slightly lesser known feature. Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencast standard made by the wi-fi alliance, and is a technology that allows users to wirelessly mirror their device’s display on another, such as the LG TV.

We’ll have to wait until CES to see if any more manufacturers pick up on adding the new technology to their devices.
