LG webOS Smart TV leaked

LG webOS Smart TVPalm’s webOS was once set to rule over smartphones and tablets before disappearing. Now it seems that the operating system’s resurrection will be televised, thanks to LG.

LG looks to be bringing webOS back at CES 2014 via a new line of Smart TVs.

Twit-leaker extraordinaire Evleaks has published this photo of the rumored LG webOS TV showing what the the webOS Cards interface might look like on-screen.

You’ll notice that it looks different to what we’re used to seeing on Smart tellies as it does away the usual smartphone-like tile design that many Smart TV interfaces employ. Instead you’re presented with a line of webOS Cards placed along the bottom of the screen. This is where you’ll find the television’s different apps and functions.

If the alleged press shot above proves to be the real thing then the new system seems to include apps for YouTube, Facebook, Skype, and Twitter, as well as LG’s SmartShare service and some kind of web browser.

The set has been rumoured to run on a 2.2Ghz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM so it should be quite perky.

Of course, this could just be a rendered mock-up to show how webOS would look on an LG gogglebox but I’ve a feeling that we could well be seeing the webOS TV being announced at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
