The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) used to be the go-to place for manufacturers to showcase the latest and greatest Android phones and tablets, but in the past year or so, the likes of Samsung and HTC have taken their main spectacles elsewhere.

Nevertheless, the upcoming CES 2013 still has some worthy gadgets to look forward to, particularly if you’re keen on taking part in the 1080p display revolution. Here’s what LG plans to bring to the event.

Although the world hasn’t exactly warmed to LG’s first 5-inch offering, the Optimus Vu, the Korean is reportedly set to debut a 5.5-inch phone in January. All we know of the device so far is that it’ll sport a full HD screen (1,920 x 1,200 resolution) with 403 ppi. The yet-to-be-named device will be duking it out with other monster-sized phones, such as the 5.5-inch ZTE Grand S and the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate. At CES, LG is likely to show off the 5.5-inch display, and possibly even launch the rumored phone.

Finally getting the hint that some of the best-selling Android tablets in the market come in a 7-inch form factor, LG will introduce  at CES a 7-inch display that will boast a 1080p resolution with 324 ppi, besting Nook HD’s screen with its 1,440 x 900 resolution and 243 ppi density.

Lastly, we also hear that LG is prepping a new 4.7-inch display that’ll come with a 1mm thin bezel. A phone equipped with such a display would look like the Nexus 4 and the Optimus G, but most likely has a narrower body.

Any of the devices above pique your interest?

    Sounds great! Looking forward to where all of this leads, though I’m not chomping at the bit to buy an LG device.
