LG G Pad 8.3 drops ahead of IFA, available Q4


LG had teased the G Pad 8.3 earlier this week and now it has been officially revealed ahead of IFA. The latest slate from LG is the next step up from their G2 smartphone  and LG are claiming that it is the first eight-inch tablet to house a 1920×1200 WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array) full HD screen. Either way the G Pad 8.3 will feature Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a huge 4,600mAh battery. Powering the device is a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor alongside 2GB of RAM. The tablet itself weighs in at 338 grand and is just 8.33mm thick. On the software side of things the tablet will feature QPair and QSlide. QPair let’s you receive messages and calls onfron Jelly Bean equipped Android phones on the G Pad itself which is a pretty cool feature. Q Slide is pretty awesome as well and allows you to run three apps to run on-screen at the same time. Another feature that’s worth pointing out is KnockOn which allows you to simply tap the screen twice to wake it. The G Pad will come in black and white and feature 16GB of storage. There is no word on pricing yet unfortunately but it will be ready to ship by Q4. The full press release is below for more information.

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
