LG to unveil next version of WebOS smart TV platform at 2015 CES

At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) scheduled to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, next month, electronics manufacturer LG will introduce the new-generation version of its WebOS smart TV platform.

According to the details shared by LG, the latest version of the WebOS - the platform which powers LG's smart TV lineup - will be comparatively "simpler, easier, and more intuitive" than the current version. Notably faster overall than its last-year-launched predecessor, the new WebOS version will come with enhanced features, and will give the viewers the ability to access to a wide-ranging 4K ultraHD streaming options.

Furthermore, the updated WebOS version will also be equipped with a new 'My Channels' app which will chiefly facilitate the users in customizing their favorite broadcast, cable or set-top box channels.

With LG having sold over five million televisions powered by the WebOS smart TV platform, the newest WebOS version will come aboard a fresh lineup of LG TVs, which will include new Quantom Dot and other OLED as well as LCD TV sets.

Noting that the updated WebOS version will boast "new and smarter features," LG VP In-kyu Lee, said in a statement: "The webOS 2.0 platform is another example of LG's commitment to taking a leadership role in the next generation TV market with an innovative Smart TV solution."
