WebOS is now an Open source platform. LG Press Release.

Evolution of LG WebOS.

The WebOS  platform was originaly developed by Palm in a great effort to make new smartphones and tablets for the internet age. Palm made several Palm smartphones as PalmPre and one tablet called the TouchPad made by HP but they were not succesful. 

However the software platform is the pioneer of many features of what you see and use on any iPhone or Android smartphone at this time.

HP bought Palm WebOS and sold it to LG who started to implement it on Smarts TV until now and keep going. LG made some smartwatches with WebOS to attend some cars makers companies like Audi, but did not go out with great volumens of  them for the consumer.

Now LG wants to go beyond the Smart TVs, refrigerators  and is offering WebOS as an Open Source to the public, encouraging you to make it work on new products as smartwatches, robots,  laptops, tablets etc as you can notice on the  above picture and here below.

Press Release:

As part of a broader effort to make webOS even more accessible to today’s consumers and industries, LG Electronics (LG) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a federal government body to more actively advance its philosophy of open platform, open partnership and open connectivity.

The National IT Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) is the governmental body within South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) responsible for developing the country’s IT sector.

LG will solicit webOS business proposals from hundreds of start-ups recommended by NIPA and shortlist the most viable ones to provide logistical and technical support with commercialization as the ultimate goal. With LG’s backing, startups will take part in international events such as Open Source Summit and OSCON to share their ideas and initiatives with other industry influencers.

Toward its goal of expanding the webOS global footprint, LG developed an open source version of its platform, webOS Open Source Edition, now available to the public at

Developers can download the source code free as well as taking advantage of related tools, guides and forums on the site to become more familiar with webOS and its inherent benefits as a smart devices platform. And because webOS is a Linux-kernel-based multitasking OS with support for HTML5 and CSS3, webOS will be quite familiar to even new developers.

“When LG adopted webOS for our popular smart TV lineup in 2013, it did so with the knowledge that webOS had tremendous potential,” said Dr. I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “webOS has come a long way since then and is now a mature and stable platform ready to move beyond TVs to join the very exclusive group of operating systems that have been successfully commercialization at such a mass level. As we move from an app-based environment to a web-based one, we believe the true potential of webOS has yet to be seen.”

Apple is getting rid of the notch for 2019 iPhones.

Apple is preparing a new display without notch design for their new iPhones. This new display will be based on OLED and it is heard that it will be applied to new iPhones that will be released in 2019.

“Apple decided to get rid of notch design starting from 2019 models and is having discussions with relevant companies.” said a representative for an industry. “It seems that Apple is planning to implement full-screen that is more complete to its new iPhones.”

Apple will keep its face recognition technology called ‘Face ID’ for 2019 models. As a result, industries are interested on how Apple will be able to place receiver, front-camera, and Face ID feature and implement full-screen at the same time. Some display industries think that Apple will either drill holes into OLED panels or use BM (Black Matrix) area within displays.

Apple has been looking to implement full-screen design on its iPhones. “Our vision always has been to create a iPhone that has its front completely filled with a display.” said Apple while releasing iPhone X last year.

Apple is planning to release two 2018 models with OLED display and a 2018 model with LCD display during this fall. 

It is heard that OLED models will be available in 5.85-inch display and 6.46-inch display while a LCD model will be available only in 6.04-inch model. All three of these models will have Face ID function and it is heard that there will be less bezel and smaller notch design.

Some phone manufacturers are copying Apple iPhone X design like ASUS from Taiwan who introduced its Smartphone called ZenFone 5 that looks exactly like Apple’s iPhone X at MWC 2018.

Other Chinese Smartphone manufacturers are imitating and applying notch design to their new Smartphones.

Rumors are saying even LG Electronics are also preparing new Smartphones with similar design as Apple’s notch design.

First Draws of Samsung Galaxy Note 9 surge. No back fingerprint scanner.

The first draw of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in September, shows a Infinity Display but a space for the S Pen in the left. Volume buttons in the left and in the right the power button.

The second draw shows a dual camera , flash, and no fingerprint scanner on the back anymore.

We think the Galaxy Note 9 will arrive with Intelligent Scan only and that is a new technology for Galaxy S9 and S9+ that combines face recognition and iris scan to make unlocking simple even in low light. So why needing a fingerprint scanner at all?

However it is uncertain at this time, if Samsung will include a under display fingerprint reader on the Galaxy Note 9.

Rumors are saying Samsung is still testing  that technology. So we have to wait to see if they succeed with that.

Meet the world’s first rechargeable proton battery. No more lithium.

Researchers say it’s a crucial step towards cheaper and more environmentally-friendly energy storage.

Researchers at RMIT university in Melbourne have created the world`s first rechargeable proton battery.

Despite the battery is just a small-scale prototype, it has the potential to be competitive with currently available lithium-ion batteries.

The rechargeable battery uses carbon and water instead of lithium.

The lead researcher Professor John Andrews said  “Lithium-ion batteries are great but they rely on ultimately scarce and expensive resources,” he said. “Hydro is also a good technology but suitable sites are limited and the cost may be very high.

“The advantage is we’re going to be storing protons in a carbon-based material, which is abundant, and we are getting protons from water which is readily available.”

The battery itself produces no carbon emissions and it can store electricity from zero-emissions renewables.

Andrews said it could be commercially available within five to 10 years.

“When it is commercially available, it would be a competitor to the Tesla Powerwall and then eventually we’d hope we might find applications at the scale of the huge Tesla battery [in South Australia] and even larger.”

Samsung is deciding to include the under display fingerprint sensor in the Galaxy Note 9.
