LG is expected to show off its WebOS TV at CES 2014 next week. But a tweet may have given us an advance preview.
A image tweeted by known leaker @evleaks on Tuesday reportedly of LG's first WebOS TV offers a peek at the new interface. The TV's multitasking menu is based on the Cards interface used by Hewlett-Packard for its smartphones -- LG bought WebOS from HP almost a year ago specifically for its new smart TVs.
LG has given the menu a different look from Cards but the idea likely remains the same.
All of your open and available apps reside at the bottom of the screen, allowing you to bounce from one to the other. The leaked image shows links for live TV as well as such apps as YouTube, Facebook, and Skype. Also on the menu is LG's SmartShare, a service that can send photos, music, and videos from your mobile device to your TV.
In December, an LG researcher said that the new WebOS TV will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show. The TV itself will be powered by a 2.2GHz dual-core processor and come with 1.5GB of RAM.
