The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show kicks off next week, and we’re expecting to see plenty of new products across all segments of the technology industry, including mobile, wearables, cameras, computers, smart home technology and, of course, new HDTVs. In fact, we’re usually pretty blown away by the number of new TVs on display each year, and LG promises some exciting new 4K technology will be on display.

The firm said recently that it will show off new 4K Ultra HD TVs with Wide Color LED technology, which it says “utilizes different phosphor-based LEDs to display greater color depth and more lifelike images.” Additionally, LG reiterated that its new 4K Ultra HD TVs with Quantum Dot Technology will make an official debut, which we learned earlier this month, and these TV sets are supposed to offer a “30 percent increase in the color gamut” for the most accurate colors ever. The firm will also show off a super skinny “ULTRA Slim concept” which apparently has small bezels and a “seamless appearance.”

Finally, LG will show off its new webOS 2.0 smart TV software, which it says its more user-friendly and will boot much faster. Considering how terrible smart TV software still is, we’re excited to see just how well this actually performs. We’ll bring you all of our opinions as soon as we lay eyes on these new sets next week.
