Hisense has unveiled a Google TV in two sizes at CES, but the television maker threw in a nifty little surprise by talking up the GF60XT980, a concept product that takes away glasses when 3D watching.

Glasses-free 3D technology, according to a Hisense press release, aims to create the same 3D experience that as when wearing a pair of blue-and-red lens specs (or whatever material 3D glasses are made of these days).

Using a UHD 2,160p panel, even at half the resolution, users still get a full high-def viewing experience, the company said. An amped up video engine and high-precision lenticular lens also helps Hisense push out top-tier picture quality.

Hisense has packed in a facial tracking system that "discretely tweaks each sweet spot" to give viewers an optimal viewing experience, something we can wait to test for ourselves. What's more, the GF60XT980 can convert regular 2D to 3D.

For now, this is only a concept, but it would be interesting to see what new innovation this will bring in. The 60-inch GF60XT980 is promising through its combination of face tracking and a 2160p display to avoid the usual 3D eyewear while preserving detail.

The company’s 2013 lineup will include the XT900 line, which brings 3D-capable 4K displays to 65-inch, 85-inch and slightly staggering 110-inch sizes. There’s also the 55- and 65-inch XT780, which port Hisense's Google TV interface from a set-top box to the set itself. Unspecified models across the entire mix carry MHL-capable HDMI ports to handle devices like the Roku Streaming Stick.

Prices and ship dates will have to wait until closer to release, Hisense says.
