The company's new smart TV tech will be on display at the upcoming show.
LG has announced plans to debut its new webOS 3.0 smart TV platform at CES 2016. The webOS 3.0 system offers enhanced features and new content over the previous version.
"The new webOS 3.0 is a major update since this advanced TV platform technology was first introduced in 2014," said Brian Kwon, President and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. "The webOS story of Simple Connection, Simple Switching and Simple Discovery has really connected with customers and illustrates very clearly our commitment to securing a leadership role in the smart TV market with innovation and creativity."
LG's webOS 3.0 offers several new and updated options, including three "magic" smart features. First up, is Magic Zoom which allows users to magnify objects and letters without any picture quality loss. Next, is Magic Mobile Connection which allows users to easily display content from a mobile device on their TV through the company's LG TV Plus App. Finally, the platform also incorporates an upgraded Magic Remote with more set-top box and DVR functions. In addition, webOS 3.0 offers several more updated features as well, including Channel Advisor for info about frequently watched programs, Multi-View for watching two sources at the same time, and a Music Player App.
The new lineup of 2016 LG webOS 3.0 smart TVs will be on display at LG's booth during CES 2016 from January 6-9 in Las Vegas.
