The electronics manufacturer issued a press release that explained the G Pad 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 will all target different parts of the market through screen sizes that give the firm a much larger footprint in the tablet market.

“Customers tell us that they want a wider range of devices that offer sizable screens without compromising portability,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG. “Unlike smartphones, tablets are not one size fits all. So we designed the G Pad Series for a diverse target audience, some who prioritize portability while others want the best multimedia experience possible. G Pad delivers on all counts.”

Detailed specifications for the devices are yet to be revealed and LG chose to simply give a short marketing blurb on each of the three slates. The G Pad 7.0 will be able to be held in one hand and is dubbed by LG as “an on-the-go entertainment hub that delivers both portability and power”, along with a 7in screen.

The G Pad 8.0, meanwhile, has an “immersive multimedia experience and smooth multitasking” to offer with an 8in display. Lastly the G Pad 10.1 has a large battery and 10.1in display that can provide “endless hours of entertainment and fun”.

All three tablets share LG’s UX features that include QPair 2.0 and LG’s innovative Knock Code technology. QPair allows users to connect smartphones via Bluetooth, receive call and message notifications, and respond using the tablet. Knock Code, in comparison, gives a higher level of protection when unlocking by entering a personalised “knock” pattern of any size in any location on the screen.
