LG's upcoming tablet could feature detachable wireless keyboard, bezel-less design
LG is one of the not so many companies that are still bringing new tablets to the market. Although LG's tablets are mainly targeting the mid-range segment, they seem to be a source of profit for the South Korean company.

We can't think of another reason that would make LG continue to launch tablets in a market dominated by Apple and Samsung if it wouldn't bring some profit to the company. But it looks like LG to be more than just the third wheel, as shown in a recent patent filed at KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office) that's been approved and published on December 14.

LG's upcoming tablet could feature detachable wireless keyboard, bezel-less design

Spotted by the folks over at LetsGoDigital, the patent shows a bezel-less tablet featuring what appears to be a detachable wireless keyboard. The slate also includes a cover that can be used as a cradle after it's unfolded.

The wireless keyboard and the bezel-less tablet are shown in two different design patents, but they're likely to be part of a bundle. More importantly, this doesn't look like an average LG tablet, but more of a premium product that's meant to compete against Apple and Samsung top-tier slates.

Same here. Got the tab S4 for the EMR digitiser and included stylus and it's fantastic for my design work but I'd love to see more competition on the android side of things.

Looks really nice, for example LG Grams are really decent machines. But it’s LG right ... so no software support to speak of.

Android tablets aren't that great. But that is not what you said. You kept things general and called the entire OS trashy. But that's okay, we all know you're a shortsighted troll boy.

That's not really saying much, considering Tab S line is really good and features awesome Wacom pen ... but anything else Samsung makes is pretty much low end trash when it comes to tablets.

Honestly forgot that LG made tablets. I owned one once; it was okay. Mediocre product overall though
