LG to show off webOS 2.0 smart TV at CES 2015
  • Loading time decreased by 60%
  • Converting apps becomes faster
  • My Channel menu

LG is set to show off an upgraded smart TV at CES 2015, powered by a new version of webOS that offers an "intuitive and convenient" user experience.

There are quite a lot of things we are looking forward to at the CES 2015 which is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas from January 6th and LG has given us more reason to be excited about; the company is going to introduce a new smart TV powered by webOS 2.0 at the trade show. This webOS 2.0 the company claims is an upgraded version of the company's smart TV platform webOS and it comes with all the new functions which are extremely "intuitive and convenient" to use.

Speed seems to be one of the highlighting factors here is the speed as the company has strived to decrease the loading time by 60 percent as compared to the original webOS and there is more. The act of converting apps is also going to take considerably lesser time now as stated by the South Korean tech giant itself. For instance, if you are entering the Youtube app, then this is going to happen 70 percent faster as compared to the time it takes on the original OS.

Thanks to the My Channel menu on the home screen, users will also be able to save their favorite channels and apart from this, the external Input and Settings menus have also been added to the latest upgraded webOS 2.0. Back in 2013, the company had acquired the source code, development infrastructure, and related documents of webOS from HP and at the last CES 2014, the company had announced a webOS-powered smart TV first time at CES 2014 and since March, the company managed to sell 5 million webOS Smart TVs globally.
