Yesterday morning at Google I/O, the Internet search giant did make an announcement that they will be upgrading their Google TV units to bump the Android mobile operating system all the way to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is obviously the latest (and of course, the greatest, too). Well, China’s TCL recently took the opportunity to announce that they too, will have the first 4K TV that will be built based on the platform.
The folks over at Engadget managed to grab hold of TCL’s custom-skinned MoVo Google TV platform and 4K TVs at CES earlier this year as you can see above, so put two and two together, and you get a complete picture of the merger. TCL’s MoVo will carry customizations that include a motion sensor which is capable of recognizing each user while personalizing offerings depending on one’s habits. Otherwise known as Personal Box Office (PBO) or “Lazy TV”, it will search the available content while making a recommendation without having to have a remote control or a voice command. It ought to be out later this year, but whether it will hit the US or not remains to be seen.
