WebOS Lands next Year with LG
LG Electronics will be unveiling a remarkable line-up that features the company’s new WebOS 2.0 Smart TV platform next year at the 2015 International CES (Consumer Electronics Shows) from 6th right up to 9th January. The LG WebOS 2.0 is built to enhance the key features founded in the current generation of Smart TVs, in result for users to experience an unrivaled competing system. Not only that, LG is collaborating with content provider such as Amazon and Netflix that provides LG TV consumers a wide-ranged viewing option in 4K resolution.
LG claims that in the new version, the improvement will be mainly in speed with power-on boot time that is reduced by 60%, and a 70% improvement when switching from the home-screen to YouTube. However in the last version, some apps tends to be unresponsive for a smart TV, so it is good to see that they have improved it in this latest version. Another main issue that concerns consumers is whether in the WebOS 2.0 upgrades requires a new display?
The new LG WebOS 2.0 TV includes a new “My Channels” app, that provides users their personal TV channels right on the TV menus. The last LG TV has a “Universal Control” from the Magic Remote LG, but now the function is built into the UI making it easier to stay in the menu. The upgrade includes an Input Picker which recognize any devices that are plugged into it, and a support of 4K streaming resolution for Amazon and Netflix.
The super, high resolution display includes a new technology like the Quantum Dots display which are a semiconductor nanocrystals that provides an alternative applications. This unique display is almost similar to the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. So before the CES heads over to Las Vegas, Nevada next year, we will know more about the information.
