Aside from its massive 105-inch Ultra HD TV, LG’s is also expected to reveal the new operating system for its line of smart TVs.

Last year, the Korean manufacturer acquired WebOS mobile operating system from HP. And last week, popular tipster @evleaks posted on his Twitter account of an LG smart TV sporting a revamped version of the card-based UI of WebOS. Previous reports have indicated that the company has invested a lot to the Enyo open-source Java script development framework that runs WebOS in the hope to encourage devs to create apps for the platform.

Based on the leaked image, it appears that Youtube, Facebook, Skype and Twitter will be coming out as standard but we’ll have to wait and see if this will hold true at CES, which is about to commence in a few hours.
