We did not have to wait until IFA for the recently teased LG G Pad 8.3 to be officially introduced to the world. The Korean manufacturer announced its latest tablet yesterday, thus giving us a nice surprise. The device should start rolling out in October on both sides of the pond, that is in North America and in Europe. The tablet also will be available in Asia as well as in other markets. As far as we can tell, the price will not depart much from other similar offerings.
LG G Pad 8.3 Android Tablet
The LG G Pad 8.3 packs an 8.3-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 WUXGA (which stands for Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array, in case you were wondering) resolution. If you calculate the pixel density, you will get a very respectable result of 273 ppi. The tablet is powered by a 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor ticking along 2 GB of RAM. The device also offers 8 GB of internal memory, 4,600 mAh battery and two cameras: a 5-megapixel main sensor and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front.
In terms if design, the LG G Pad 8.3 resembles the LG G2 and those two would make a cute couple. The tablet runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and comes pre-loaded with a selection of LG apps, all of which are also present in the recently announced G2. For example, an updated version of Qslide allows you to use not two, but three apps at the same time. Thanks to Slide Aside you will be able to switch between apps using a three-finger swipe. KnockON will let you wake the table by just tapping on the screen. QPair will allow you to pair the LG G Pad 8.3 with a smartphone, regardless of the brand, in order to receive messages and notifications right on the tablet.
