LG bailed on the tablet market after the amazing flop that was the G-Slate, but came back to the table last year with the surprisingly competitive G Pad 8.3. It became the first Google Play Experience tablet, and now LG is expanding its offerings with 7, 8, and 10.1-inch devices. Guess what we don't know about these devices... pretty much everything else.

The three tablets will be completely unveiled at the MedPI 2014 show, running May 13-16th. That's a few weeks before the expected G3 announcement on May 27th. It looks like the company isn't dropping any hints with the press images for the new G Pads, either. Note the lack of UI other than the generic battery icon and the clock.

You can expect these devices to include LG's usual array of software tweaks, like Knock Code, which is heavily cited in the PR. LG probably isn't going for a multi-tiered tablet lineup a la Samsung, so I'd expect these new devices to at least be solidly mid-range. Looks like there will be some fun colors, though. We'll have to wait to find out. Full PR is below.

LG EXPANDS TABLET OPTIONS WITH NEW G PAD SERIES MODELS
Three New Tablets Satisfy Consumer Demand for More Choices to Fit Their Lifestyles

SEOUL, May 12, 2014 ― LG Electronics (LG) is adding three new tablets to its G Pad series to offer more options for tablet users. The new G Pad devices ― G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1 ― will be unveiled at the MedPI 2014, one of the biggest IT/Tech trade show in Europe, taking place in Monaco from May 13-16. LG’s extended tablet portfolio, which also includes the well-received G Pad 8.3, will significantly expand LG’s 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 the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “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.”

Highlights of LG’s new G Pad Series tablets are:

G Pad 7.0: Designed to be held in one hand, LG’s smallest tablet is an on-the-go entertainment hub that delivers both portability and power.

G Pad 8.0: With its 8-inch display, LG’s mid-sized tablet offers an immersive multimedia experience andsmooth multitasking.

G Pad 10.1: With the largest display and battery, LG’s 10.1-inch tablet provides endless hours of entertainment and fun.

The latest G Pad tablets will also include LG’s proprietary UX features such as QPair 2.0 and Knock CodeTM. With an updated version of QPair, which was first introduced on G Pad 8.3, users can effortlessly connect to their Android-powered smartphones via Bluetooth to receive notifications of calls and messages and now be able to respond directly from the G Pad. What’s more, Knock Code™ enables users to power on and unlock their LG smartphones in one easy step by entering a personalized “knock” pattern on the smartphone’s display. Knock Code™ offers convenience and greater security as the knock pattern can be entered anywhere on the screen in any size ― with the display on or off ― using a personalized sequence of two to eight taps for more than 80,000 possible combinations.
