Korean tech giant LG has announced three new G Pad tablet models: The G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1.

Exact specifications and features of the just introduced devices, which now form LG’s G Pad series alongside G Pad 8.3, have not been revealed. Still, the main difference between the three product seems to be their screen size: 7, 8, and 10.1 inches.

LG gave a simple answer to the question why they released the same tablet in several dimensions. According to 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.”

All three deviced are said to feature LG’s proprietary features such as Knock Code, which lets you unlock a device with a combination of taps, and QPair, which lets you connect to an Android phone and see call and message notifications on the tablet.

Priving and availability, as well as other details about these three tablets, will be announced “in the weeks ahead.”

Back in FebruaryLG announced three new third-generation devices in the new L Series III range, named LG L90, L70 and L40.

The LG l90 features a 4,7-inch display with 540×960 pixels resolution. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz, it also features a quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM. Which is more, L90 has an 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

A powerful 2540mAh removable battery backs this device. LG L90 measures 131.6 x 66.0 x 9.7mm in dimensions.

The other model, the LG L70, has nearly the same screen size of 4.5-inch and comes with an IPS display packing a 400×800 pixels resolution.

The smartphone, like L90, comes with 1GB of RAM, but it will feature a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. This model arrived on the market in two variants with a choice of 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel rear cameras. Both variants have a front-facing VGA camera.

The L70 includes 4GB of built-in storage. The handset is backed-up by a 2100mAh removable battery. The LG L70 measures 127.2 x 66.8 x 9.5mm in dimensions.

And finally the LG L40. This model is with the lowest price in line, as it has only a 3.5-inch screen with 320×480 pixels resolution.

The unveiled LG L40 comes with a low 512MB of RAM and seemingly the same processor featured by L70 – a dual-core 1.2GHz chip.

“In addition to inheriting the refined design aesthetic that is synonymous with LG’s premium devices, the L SeriesIII provides an array of user benefits that extend far beyond a simple upgrade,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park.

“From the design to the OS to the UX, the L SeriesIII exemplifies LG’s commitment to bringing the best smartphone experience to as many consumers as possible. We’re confident that the L SeriesIII will be a strong volume driver in 3G markets.”
