LG has supplied some exciting preliminary details of a new television that it plans to reveal formally at the Consumer Entertainment Show in January.

The new HDTV has the claim of being the world's first to offer a full high-definition while also including Wi-Fi.

The 52LG71 will provide a Full HD 1080p picture like most competing 52-inch sets - but - will also incorporates an 802.11 link that streams HD over a local wireless network.

This would mean owners of the new television would not need a separate media hub or an extender to watch their home content, LG says.

No real specs were released at this stage, other than that the set will boasts a 120Hz panel and other technologies that "represent the best of LG's technology".

A more detailed announcement may be forthcoming, and Pocket-lint will be live from the show floor at the CES show in January to bring you all the info from the official unveiling.
