Next month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas will be all about televisions for LG. The South Korean electronics giant not only announced its Quantum Dot TV ahead of rival Samsung, it also teased an entire lineup of 4K LED LCD TVs that will focus on a technology that LG has decided to brand “ColorPrime”.
Last year, the most notable thing about LG’s TVs was the software running on them: webOS. LG had just picked up the corpse of the former mobile operating system and repurposed it for the living room. The resulting user interface was a step above what other TV manufacturers had on offer at CES 2014. It was refreshing and fast, with clear traces of the software that many former Palm users still miss today. As for the TVs themselves, they were okay — but didn’t do much to stand out from a crowded field including Sony, Samsung, and Vizio. Now LG’s back with a 2015 lineup that’s all about 4K and, if you believe the company, improvements to picture quality.
