Bulgarian bloke blabs LG's smart watch plan

Flexible displays on the way from Korea's other colossal electronics-maker

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Korea's other giant electronics manufacturer, LG, has let slip that it too plans a smart watch, if Bulgarian outlet Dnenvnik Is to be trusted.

Dnenvnik this week carried an interview with Dimitar Vulev, manager for mobile communications products at LG's Bulgarian outpost.

The interview meanders towards the topic of smart watches, at which point Vulev offered the following insights:

“To be honest, LG made Watch Mobile phone three years ago, but not experienced success because the market was not ripe. Very important not only to make a product, but to let him go at the right time. The market should be ready to have the relevant factors.

I think next year we will have a similar product, but I can not share more details. It is expected in the first United States. Will necessarily participate in new niches. In some markets, we will offer a flexible display, but still can not say in what.”

The hint that LG could do a smart watch phone will tantalise many as most announced smart watches leave the phoning to the phones.

Vulev also says LG will start to sell a Firefox OS phone in early 2014, plans even bigger phablets than its current Optimus range and maybe even some Windows Phones as well. ®
