LG has just added a new version of its content platform to its Smart TVs this year: webOS 3.0. The system has been designed to incorporate renewed functionalities, such as more intuitive navigation through the menus and greater ease of use. Precisely, ease of use is one of the most marked trends in Smart TV in the last year, as we have also seen in Samsung televisions . And, in addition, they could not miss specific functions to enjoy the most important sporting events of the year (it is noted that it is the year of the European Championship, the Olympic Games and the America's Cup).
This new software version turns the remote control of any LG Smart TV from 2016 into a realization control. In this way, the user can zoom on live images. Simply by pointing the Magic Control pointer on the TV screen, and pressing a single button, the image will be zoomed in on the live broadcast. For its part, it will also be possible to view two channels at the same time. One through DTT and another through external input, such as HDMI content from the decoder, to simultaneously open content and another for payment. In this way, the screen will be divided into two content to be broadcast simultaneously, so that there are no fights at home when two teams play a decisive match at the same time. On the other hand, you can make moviola or record live content via USB or a hard drive. In this way, thanks to LG Smart TVs with webOS 3.0, you will not lose any detail and you can relive the best moments over and over again.
In addition to these functionalities, LG Smart TVs with webOS 3.0 also have a Channel advisor. Thanks to this function, the TV will offer the user information about upcoming contents that are similar to what they usually see by analyzing viewing patterns. In addition, they will be able to use the Music Player application , which plays music through the webOs 3.0 television speakers, even when it is turned off.
It was at the beginning of January when LG surprised with its new Smart TVs : LG UH9500, LG UH8500, and LG UH7700 . These models have a 4K UHD resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, which multiplies by four the level of detail of televisions with Full HD resolution. The LG UH9500 range offers sizes between 55 inches and 86 inches. The LG UH8500 range has screen formats between 55 and 75 inches. For its part, the LG UH7700 has sizes between 49 inches and 65 inches . In addition to HDR technology, these IPS panels also boast of other technologies such as True Black Panel. Finally, mention that in terms of the design section, what can be highlighted the most is the use of almost non-existent frames that will give us the feeling that we are facing a much larger screen. In addition to these televisions, LG also has a television called LG UH9800 with a size of 98 inches and 8K resolution.
