The simple answer, I think, is no.  There seems to be next to no information out in the wild.

People do not, to my mind, purchase their televisions based on CPU speed or RAM specifications, they purchase on brand, cost, image quality, app support, price etc.  When it comes to TVs knowing the CPU/SoC specifications is not necessarily going to facilitate comparison between brands.  Most of the Smart TV manufacturers produce their own operating systems, and their hardware has different features sets so trying to compare them can be like comparing apples to oranges.  Just because a manufacturer has a faster CPU does not mean the picture it produces or the runs apps it runs will be any better.  Different operating systems, different overheads etc.  A brief look at Samsung's TV range shows nothing about the CPU specifications either.

Yes CPU, GPU and SoC specifications matter in phones because it is easier to compare, as excluding Apple's iOS from the equation, there is only one mobile phone platform used by multiple manufactures that of course being Google's Android.  With one operating system but many different though fundamentally similar hardware platforms it is easier to compare.

LG's 2018 OLED and high end LED ranges are going to get the new Alpha 9 SoC which according to Flat Panels HD article (first link below) is 50% more powerful than the previous generation of chip, but does not state specifically which previous generation of chip they are talking about, but it is probably the Alpha 7.  There does not appear to be any mention of the Alpha 9's CPU speed, memory capacity, bus speeds etc given by LG, only what is intended to be capable of doing.  There is no indication if the Alpha 9 range is based on MIPS technology that LG has used in the past or if they have switch to ARM or another platform.  Other (but not necessarily all) models have the Alpha 7 previous used in the B8 series (see the Tech Radar link below), these TVs will I assume not support LG's ThinQ platform.

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      My LG TV remote stopped working with my JAMO sound bar. As of yesterday, I can no longer control my sound bar volume with the TV remote. When I try to make the sound bar pair to the remote, nothing happens. I know it's not the sound bar because I took an old Samsung TV remote and it pairs perfectly with the sound bar. The bizarre thing is, I can pair the LG remote with the sound bar and the lights on the sound bar look like they are working perfectly until I turn on the TV. As soon as I do that, the remote no longer works with the TV. 
      The audio output is set to optical like it has been for the last two years. Nothing has changed except the remote not working. Samsung works fine, the small sound bar remote works fine. The LG remote controls the TV volume if I use the internal speakers. This makes no sense to me.
