We already knew that the LG G Pad 8.3 is very much in the works and the company itself had also confirmed the tab through a teaser video on YouTube last week. That’s one reason why the device’s launch ahead of the IFA doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Nevertheless, we are glad that LG has put an end to all speculations and disclosed everything there is to know about the tablet that belongs to the G series.
The entire front side of the gadget is dominated by an 8.3-inch WUXGA multi-touch display with a pixel density of 273ppi and 1920 x 1200p resolution. In spite of measuring 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3 millimeters, the device does not seem too heavy considering that it tips the scales at merely 338 grams. Slated to be made available in shades of black and white, the portable slab should support multiple applications at a time, thanks to a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor that sprints at a speed of 1.7GHz. 2GB of LPDDR2 RAM has been tossed in to assist the chipset and ensure smooth navigation between applications.
Moreover, the LG G Pad 8.3 gets its intuitive interface from the Android 4.2.2 OS and the proprietary UX which brings functions like Slide Aside, QSlide and KnockON to name a few. It is pre-loaded with the QPair app that seamlessly connects the device with any Jelly Bean smartphone and allows users to reply to messages and do a lot of other things through the slate. There’s 16GB of onboard memory to help customers save images and videos taken from its 5MP rear camera. A 1.3MP webcam facilitates video conferencing and a 4600mAh battery sits under the hood to keep the slab powered up for at least an entire day.
The LG G Pad 8.3 will be up for grabs in the fourth quarter of this year across the globe. Its price will be announced at a later date.
