Word has been circulating since about mid-December that LG is planning to unveil a new smart TV powered by webOS at CES 2014. The webOS operating system hasn’t exactly found a successful niche in the tech world so far and LG thinks that niche may be in the smart TV market.
LG is expanding the "Knock" feature to its entire ecosystem of smartphones and tablets, the company announced today. The feature lets users tap the screen twice as an alternative way to turn on the device, rather than reaching around back for the power button. The LG Optimus Series II is next in line to receive the upgrade.
Over the last few years at CES in January, LG has been showing off its ever improving smart appliances. At CES 2013, LG showed off smart appliances that were able to interact with the user via WiFi networks. At CES 2014 next month LG will be rolling out new and improved smart appliances.
LG today announced it will be unveiling an update to its Pocket Photo, a wireless mobile photo printer, at CES 2014 in early January. We first got our hands on a Pocket Photo this last February, and it appeared to work seamlessly, producing sharp little wallet prints. The Pocket Photo 2 promises to be slimmer with more features.
LG is focusing its 2014 product efforts on sound, hoping to position itself as the home entertainment manufacturer for audiophiles seeking flexibility in in-home streaming. Tonight it announced a wide array of updates to its existing lines of home sound equipment. The company will reveal these officially at CES 2014 in January.
LG will bring its first webOS smart TV to CES next month, with the former Palm platform making its living room debut. The new TV will run webOS - which LG acquired from HP earlier this year - on a 2.2GHz dualcore processor, LG researcher Hong Sung-pyo confirmed this week, ZDNet Korea reports, though most other details are unknown.
Whilst gearing up for CES 2014, LG has announced that it will be showing off its first curved Ultra HD television, something that is being hailed as the first ever curved 4K TV with a 21:9 aspect ratio. This follows recent announcements by LG that includes its all-in-one running Chrome OS, as well as some new UltraWide monitors that will also be debuted at the upcoming tech event.
LG has taken the wraps off the LG Chromebase 22CV241, a new all-in-one desktop running Google's Chrome OS on a 21.5-inch, Full HD display. Running the web-centric platform on Intel's fourth-gen Celeron processor, the Chromebase is seemingly aiming to displace the PC or Mac you might ordinarily put in a kid's room or kitchen, doing everything Windows or OS X might regularly be asked to, but without the maintenance.
