The first indication that LG might soon release a new tablet appeared last month when the company filed a number of trademark applications in Korea. Among others, there was a G Pad trademark application filed under the tablets category. Other applications were made for G Watch, G Glass, G Hub and G Band. As you can see, all those applications use the letter “G”, which recently became LG’s signature for high-end mobile devices. The Korean manufacturer dropped the “Optimus” brand and use the letter “G” for its high-end smartphones.
8.3-inch LG G Pad Android Tablet
Back to the tablet, it is said to presents itself on par with the Nexus 7, one of the few differences being the size. The LG G Pad will be a tad bigger. The display will measure 8.3 inches and will offer a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. Ticking inside will be a quad-core processor, however, at the moment the type and speed of the chip remain unknown. The processor will be aided by 2 GB of RAM.
The tablet will support cellular connectivity and a call-enabled SIM card. If you were expecting a stylus to come with the package, you may be a bit disappointed since the G Pad will probably not include one. There are folks who supposedly have had a chance to take a look at the tablet. According to them, the G Pad is lightweight and compact. In fact, you could carry it in your back pocket. Whether this is true or not it yet remains to be seen, hopefully in a short time. The device is expected to be officially announced in September at IFA 2013 Berlin.
