LG makes some of the best smart TVs in the game. They have superior-quality displays and a very intuitive UI. LG’s webOS smart TV operating system plays a big role in that. Well, now the brand has announced its latest innovation, the webOS Hub 2.0S. What started as a game-changer for smart TVs in September is now extending its reach to smart monitors. So, let’s take a look a what it is and how it is going to benefit the users.
