LG exec confirms new tablet, smartwatch on the way

LG plans to roll out multiple new interesting products if statements given by the company's Bulgarian communications executive Dimitar Valev are to be believed. Valev, in an interview with, confirmed that LG will be resurrecting its tablet lineup soon, along with a new 6-inch smart phone device, a smartwatch device and a new Firefox OS phone.

Just saying that new products are coming with no real details isn't of much help, but it's interesting to see an executive laying out a roadmap like this. Our best guess at the upcoming tablet is an 9.8-inch model named the V500, which has just passed through FCC certification. As for the specifics on LG's plans for a new phone even larger than the Optimus G Pro and a jump back into wearable tech, we'll have to keep waiting for more information to surface.

  • First.. :-) And.. Let's see it.
  • Second...that...I second that :D
  • Love my galaxy nexus with android, but still waiting on LG to make a move with webOS, but being a webOS fan since day one, I am expecting to hear LG abandoned webOS. Firefox OS is at least something different I guess than the main players.
  • Any chance for nexus phone again by them? I hope they don't, as I love to see one from Motorola with maxx type battery... Posted via Android Central App
  • I love how LG just gives new product secrets away! °_° So you know what to look forward to. ⓖ◎◎ⓖⓛⓔ†ⓝⓔⓧⓤⓢ
  • Yeah well, I had one of LG's last tablet, the Optimus Pad, and like all their devices they abandoned it leaving us buyers without an an update out of Honeycomb! Sorry LG to me your not serious about your products, just sales.
  • I agree, LG have a terrible habit of churning devices out. LG OG - Nov 2012.
    LG OG Pro - May 2013
    LG G2 - August 2013. In 9 months LG has released 3 flagship phones... Each time they release one the previous phone is no longer of any interest to them. They need to sort out their software support.
  • Of course it's coming whatever samsung does lg follows Posted via Android Central App
  • At first I didn't like LG and I'm a samsung fan but I'm starting to like LG more and more...
  • Idea works better without the comma "tablet watch" - genius!
