Dimitar Valev, Sales & Marketing Manager of Mobile Communications & PC at LG Bulgaria, spoke candidly about the manufacturer’s product pipeline for the next 12 months. Unlike most executives, who keep tight lipped about future plans, Valev revealed several juicy tidbits about what LG has in store for its customers in the coming year.
Valev confirmed that LG is hard at work on an Android tablet that could debut by the end of this year. The company also plans to introduce a larger phablet in 2014 that’ll compete with the 6-inch phones like the Samsung Galaxy Mega.
With all the emphasis on wearable tech lately, it’s not surprising that Valev said LG may have a smart wristwatch ready for next year. LG has already dabbled with smart watches in the past, but the market was not ready for the technology. It only makes sense the company would be ready to release one when the market is ripe for the picking.
Lastly, Valev said flexible displays are on the way next year in devices that’ll hit specific markets. He also added that the company is happy with Android, but is planning to jump back into Windows Phone. It’s also watching Firefox OS to see how it is received by consumers.
