LG has been out of the tablet scene for quite a while, but just days before IFA, the South Korean giant has just unveiled the G Pad 8.3. What should we expect from LG's slick-looking slate?
Well, we have an 8.3-inch 1920x1200 WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics ) display, a 4,600mAh battery, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 SoC (1.7GHz quad-core processor), and 2GB of RAM. All of this arrives in a slate that is just 8.33mm thick, and weighing just 338g. LG has sprinkled some software enhancements on the G Pad 8.3 in the form of QPair and QSlide.
QPair will let you receive messages and calls from Jelly Bean-powered smartphones on the G Pad 8.3, which is a nice feature, while QSlide lets you run three apps on-screen at once. LG has also provided KnockOn, which allows you to just tap the screen twice to wake the slate up. LG will be shipping the G Pad 8.3 in Q4 of this year, with 16GB on-board flash as the minimum storage. It'll arrive in either black or white, with pricing to be unveiled in the near future.
