LG executive confirms smart watch, Firefox OS device coming soon
LG is indeed working on a number of devices that includes a new tablet, phablet, smart watch and even a Firefox OS device, according to a company official.

Mobile communications head of LG Bulgaria, Dimitar Valev, in an interview with Dnevnik.bg has laid down company's device roadmap for the coming year.

Valev confirmed that the company is working on devices with large displays and next year there will be an even bigger phone than 5.5-inch display seen in the LG Optimus G Pro. This hints that the company may be working on a 6-inch phablet considering that other major handset makers are also launching phablets with the display sizes measuring around that mark. The company might use the just launched quad-HD smartphone display technology which is the world's first quad-HD AH-IPS LCD panel for smartphones.

Further, LG will be refreshing its tablet line-up and an Android tablet is indeed coming by year-end, confirmed the official. Previously, a LG branded tablet was spotted in Bluetooth SIG (special interest group) certification filing. The report claimed that two devices with model number LG-V500 and LG-V507L appeared on the Bluetooth special interest group's website.

Interestingly, Valev also suggested that the company might unveil a smart watch next year, however no details were shared. He noted that the company made a watch mobile phone three years ago, but did not get success because may be the market was not ripe.

LG is also considering working on platforms other than Android, confirmed Valev. He noted that company might work on Windows Phone depending on how Microsoft continues to develop the operating system. He also affirmed that LG will have a Firefox OS device ready for launch in the first quarter of 2014.
