LG Executive Hints at Upcoming Tablet, Phone and Smartwatch Coming Soon

LG logo

The head of LG’s mobile communications in Bulgaria, Dimitar Valdev, was up for leaking bits of information surrounding the company’s mobile division in a recent interview. Valdev laid out LG’s plans for upcoming devices, some Android and some not. LG is reportedly going to dust off their tablet line, bring us another phone and even look into getting into the smartwatch race. 

LG may be planning a sequel to the Optimus G Pro, with a bigger 6″ screen, though 5.5″ seems more likely since that is the size of their new, crazy-high resolution screen that was introduced last night. Even more interesting is the fact that they, according to Valdev, have a Firefox OS phone in the works as well. The tablet is rumored to be a 9.8″ device, and of course LG will throw their hat in the smartwatch ring with the likes of Samsung, Apple, and Google.

Sounds like LG’s got some big plans for their upcoming devices – can they break into the U.S. market finally, in a big way?

    I’ll take a G pro with a 5.5-6in 2k screen. But that Honami is looking better every day.

      Wouldn’t 2k be 1920x1080p? I get what you mean (their new 2560×1440 or w/e panel), but just curious.

      • Tyler Durden

        I don’t think so. Considering 4K is 4 times 1080p

        • Justin W

          Got it. Technically 2560x1620p is 2K, but I get what you are saying (and I don’t know why that slipped my mind).

          4k is 3840×2160 and the 4k refers to the near 4000 pixels horizontally, where 1080 is a vertical measurement.

    Nexus please

      I read that as a sassy black woman until I realized you were just asking nicely.

    At this point, can’t we expect ALL smartphone manufacturers to make smart watches? I’m not saying they’ll all be successful, but any company that does not get their slice of the pie now will never get a substantial piece.

      Unless your smart watch can exist without your phone I think it is pointless. Especially if there is no music on it, cause the last thing I want to do is carry my phone while doing physical activities

  • Kanaga Deepan N

    What about possibility of a new Nexus device from them?

    Apple’s going to sue LG for copying Samsung.

      Another series of Android tablets to launch this week from tablet-maker Pipo Electronics, stand out for excellent build quality and price-performance — the Pipo M7 Pro ($255) which for roughly the same price as the new Nexus 7, features a 8.9 inch display with 1900X1200 screen resolution that uses advanced Samsung PLS technology, along with a Quad core processor, and built-in GPS navigation — and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus… offering premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, as well as the choice of using standard Android O/S or a Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use —

      The Pipo M9 Pro ($285) model offers a 10 inch version that compares closely to the new Asus and 3G HSPA+ is available with either model for $25 more and work with any GSM Carrier, including T-Mobile and AT&T, and an Android phone SIM card maybe used interchangeably with both phone and tablet.

      One of the first sources to carry the new Pipo tablet series is –T ab l e t S p r i nt–- which also features a new Miracast TV adapter($39) that launched this week, which is similar to Google Chromecast — but with a lot more features and performs much more like Apple’s Airplay technology.

        You do this enough at Android Police. Stay there please, or better yet, just go away.

          I bought a Pipo tablet last year and I think it’s time for an upgrade. The specs on this site look pretty nice. Thanks for the info.
