LG to present more smart TV sets at CES 2015

LG plans to execute a new attack on the smart TV market starting next month at CES 2015 when the Korean company will present a few new smart TV models that use the webOS operating system. LG will not have any problems doing this as the company owns the rights to webOS, which it obtained some time ago.

There is no information on the model names or the tech specs of the upcoming models but according to LG the new models will be much better and faster than previously released LG webOS TV sets. LG now says the new generation will offer 60 per cent faster overall boot times and starting the YouTube app from the home screen has become 70 per cent faster.

Speed is not everything here and along with it LG plans to offer new OS features that include a My Channels option that allows you to get access to your favorite channels from the launcher bar, along with a redesigned input picker and a quick settings mode that does not interrupt what you are watching at the moment. In addition LG will soon provide 4K streaming content.

LG will likely use webOS in the upcoming company smartwatches too.
