LG has revealed two more televisions that it will be showing off at CES in January at the same time as its Ultrawide 4K monitor and the Chromebase all-in-one computer. A television the company calls the world's first 105-inch curved Ultra HD set will make an appearance alongside a smart TV running on WebOS, the operating system the company picked up from HP earlier this year.

The Ultra HD television, model number 105UB9, will apparently have a resolution far higher than normal 4K, with the company boasting it to be capable of showing a 5,120x2,160 image. Rather than using an OLED panel for the display, such as in its most-recent effort, the 21:9 CinemaScope screen will use a refined TFT process to "prevent color leakage" and to solve the issues associated with uneven backlighting.

The WebOS television will apparently have a 2.2GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM, reports ZDNet, though LG researcher Hong Sung-pyo stopped short of advising the size or other specifications of the device.

Launch timing and prices for both displays are likely to be issued at CES itself.
