LG has announced a trio of new G Pad tablet models consisting of the G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1. See also: LG G3 release date, price, specs and new features UK.

With an aim to offering more options to users, LG has confirmed it is launching three new versions of its G Pad 8.3 tablet. There are few details available yet such as price, release date and specs because the firm will announce the tablets in full at MedPI 2014 which starts tomorrow in Monaco.

LG hopes the new devices will significantly expand 'footprint in the tablet market'. While the 7- and 10-inch models make a lot of sense, we can't get our heads round the 8-inch size which is only 0.3-inch smaller than LG original G Pad tablet.

"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."

All the new G Pad models will come with LG's UX features including QPair 2.0 and KnockCode. Based on the initial images, colours will include blue, white and black. Here's how LG describes each of its new tablets:

LG G Pad 7.0

Designed to be held in one hand, LG's smallest tablet is a non-the-go entertainment hub that delivers both portability and power.

LG G Pad 8.0

With its 8-inch display, LG's mid-sized tablet offers an immersive multimedia experience and smooth multitasking.

LG G Pad 10.1

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