Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
In the run up to IFA 2013 LG have revealed their latest tablet creation – the G Pad 8.3. Unsurprisingly the 8.3 denotes the screen size in inches, 8.3 inches, and the screen uses a 273 PPI 1920 by 1200 display using an LCD panel and 16:10 resolution. The G Pad 8.3 is powered by Qualcomm’s quad core Krait 300 CPU clocked at 1.7GHz with 2GB of LPDDR2 RAM. This means it is part of the Snapdragon 600 series. The unit has a rear firing 5MP camera, a 1.3MP front facing camera and 16GB of internal flash storage.
LG will provide the G Pad 8.3 with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and it will be equipped with LG’s “QSlide” multi-tasking software and their “Knock On” display power on software. LG have also added “QPair” which lets the tablet pick up calls and messages from any other Jelly Bean smartphone. The whole device is powered by a 4600 mAh battery which should give good battery life of at least 5 hours but LG did not state any specifics.
Pricing and availability is TBA but $450+ seems like a reasonable guess. More will be revealed at IFA 2013 in Germany from June 5th.
