LG G Pad out before end of 2013, even bigger phablet coming in 2014

LG G Pad out before end of 2013, even bigger phablet coming in 2014LG has already given us the G2, and may or may not be making the Google Nexus 5, but that's far from the end of the action we can expect from Korea's No 2 phone maker in the immediate future.

First up there's the G Pad, which we already knew about, but we can also expect an even bigger LG phablet to hit the ground next year, together with the company's debut smartwatch.

All this comes from a reliable source, too – LG Bulgaria mobile communications head Dimitar Valev, who revealed all in an interview with Dnevnik.bg recently. Well, maybe not all, but a fair bit more than we knew before.

The LG G Pad tablet grabbed our attention in a big way a week ago with talk of an 8.3in display and a better-than-full-HD resolution, and a pair of G Pad variants have recently been FCC certified over in the US, so this one was a nailed-on certainty already.

So Valev's confirmation that the G Pad will indeed be emerging before year end isn't exactly a scoop, though given the source it does at least confirm it'll be an international release.

As for the super-size phablet, it seems the G2 and the Vu 3 aren't enough for LG, and an even bigger smartphone is being prepped to stretch our already groaning pockets even further next year. An LG G Max, perhaps?

Next there's talk of an LG smartwatch, though given LG's rather embarrassing smartwatch effort a few years back it's perhaps understandable Valev didn't dwell too long on that one.

He also mentioned the likelihood of a return to Windows Phone once WP8 GDR3 is out and about, and even suggested the possibility of dipping a toe in Firefox OS waters too.

Throw in Quad HD LCDs and bendy displays and things are very much looking up for LG, it seems.
