Images of what LG’s rumoured webOS-powered smart TV have been leaked online.
The images, posted by Evleaks, show what purport to be a television running the operating system that was previously used by Palm and HP to power smartphones and tablets.
The TV uses the operating system’s innovative Cards interface, which resembles a stack of cards stripe across the screen.
WebOS was acquired by LG from HP in February 2013. LG bought the OS as it expressed its need to have its own operating system to power its devices. Rival Samsung, has been developing its own operating system, Tizen, with Intel to power smartphones and TVs.
According to the image posted, the TV will feature apps such as Twitter, YouTube, Skype, Facebook and other services. Reports from The Verge suggest that the TV will un on a 2.2GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of memory.
Sources told the Wall Street Journal that the TV would be launched at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas later this month. The company is also set to unveil a huge 105-inch 4K curved-screen television at the show, with a similar model expected from Samsung.
