LG has just done another of its “FIRST!!!” things today, by announcing the LG G Pad 8.3. Coming with an 8.3″ Full HD display, the first of its kind on a tablet of this size, the G Pad 8.3 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (I know!) and packs in a Snapdragon 600 quad core processor.
- Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with custom LG skin on top
- 8.3″ LCD display of Full HD resolution, 1920×1200 pixels
- 1.7 GHz quad core Snapdragon 600 processor
- 5 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front facing camera
- 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory,
expandable with a microSD card
- Wi-Fi b/g/n
- 4,600 mAh battery
The LG G Pad 8.3 also comes with a couple of software niceties, courtesy the custom skin LG makes. You can pair Android device running (preferably) Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or above to pair it with the LG G Pad 8.3 via the QPair app to view/reply to/send messages and receive/make calls which come to your phone, from the tablet itself.
The G Pad 8.3 will also be shown off at the upcoming IFA in Europe. As far as the tablet availability is concerned, LG is saying that it will be available in Q4 this year, in North America, Europe, Asia and other places. That is of course assuming that the tablet actually makes the cut before being shelved.
No price has been announced yet.
