LG executive confirms new tablet, smartphone, and smartwatch

Just last week, we found out that LG could be building an 8.3-inch tablet called the LG G Pad, an idea that I quite liked. Quickly enough, LG’s head of mobile communications in Bulgaria, Dimitar Valev, has decided to give us some more information about LG’s future plans, which include a tablet that could very likely be the LG G Pad.

In an interview with a Bulgarian blog, Valev revealed that LG will in fact be bringing back it’s dormant tablet line with a new device, which will hopefully be something like what was rumored last week. In addition to a new tablet, the company is also working on a very interesting smartphone with a 6-inch display. Surprisingly enough, the new device doesn’t run Android – No, it will be running Firefox OS, which so far has been reserved mostly for lower end applications. Somehow, though, I doubt that a new 6-inch smartphone will be a low-end device.

Even more surprisingly, he also said that LG will be giving the smartwatch a try, and may even employ flexible LCD display technology. There’s really no telling what direction LG might take a smartwatch, from the full fledged independent device to a smartphone-dependent second display. Still, based on what seems to be a newly ambitious phase for LG, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the company try something different.

Sadly, there’s no mention of a new Nexus 4 here, though there is still hope that Google’s next Nexus might be a clone of the LG G2. Even so, it is interesting to hear that LG will be taking what sounds like a new direction, working with Firefox OS on smartphones and cutting edge technology in a smartwatch, not to mention a potentially great tablet. Even without the Nexus 4 2013 model, I’m quite intrigued to see what the company will be releasing in the future.
