LG may take the benefits of the CES 2014 podium and unveil its first Smart TV based on webOS. Thanks to @evleaks who published alleged image of the Smart TV and we can understand what is to be expected. It’s a very elegant, slim, large-size television set with an OS that has “cards” interface.
The leaked image, in fact, clearly shows that the user interface that will be familiar to buyers because it’s quite similar to today’s smartphones and mobile devices in general. The interface isn’t identical to that seen in Palm’s webOS smartphones and tablets.
FYI, webOS is a Linux based OS for smart TVs and smartphones. Initially, it was developed by Palm, which was acquired by Hewlett-Packard, and the OS was later sold to LG Electronics.
The image also confirms that the TV will have a thin and small bezels, and include YouTube, Facebook, Skype and Twitter app at the time of the launch.
The South Korean home may announce the product officially in the course of Consumer Electronics Show 2014 next week, between 7 and 10 January in Las Vegas.
Apart this, there’re no official or unofficial leak about hardware, software, release date or pricing details. It’s not yet known whether the Smart TV from LG will have multiple variants with different sizes.
So tuned until LG sheds more light during the upcoming CES event in 4-5 days from today.
