It seems to work well enough for Samsung, so why not give it a go? Three new tablets are on the way from LG, with the only difference between them being the size of their displays. They’re to be named the LG  G Pad 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 – you can probably guess why.

The original G Pad debuted in November of last year and failed to live up to the success of LG’s overwhelmingly popular handset venture the Nexus 5. When compared to other ~8-inch tablets it was priced a little on the steep side at over £200, seeing it lose ground to more popular devices like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

Whilst we don’t know what the price of this new range will be, it certainly looks nice enough at a first glance. Press shots show a colourful range including black, white and blue rear casings, with an aesthetic similar to that of the aforementioned Nexus 5. We also know that it’ll have an updated set of features, with LG’s knock-to-wake and QPair Bluetooth notification syncing all present and correct.

Unfortunately we don’t know anything else about the technical innards of the devices, so we’ll have to wait until after their unveiling at the MedPI tradeshow in Monaco on the 13th May to find out more. We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
