LG has today announced the US launch of its new G Pad 10.1 tablet, which is set to arrive in Europe, Asia and Latin America later this month.
LG says that the G Pad 10.1 features a 10.1-inch WXGA display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, a 1.3 megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera.
The G Pad 10.1 also comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, an 8000 mAh battery, wifi and Bluetooth. LG says it will be available in two colours, black and red.
At 8.9mm thick and 523g, the LG G Pad 10.1 is about the same thickness as the Nexus 10, but is lighter by about 80g.
“Consumers use tablets differently from smartphones and we wanted to highlight the important role of entertainment in the new LG G Pad 10.1,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
“Tablets are increasingly being used as companion devices, which is why we made connecting the LG G Pad 10.1 to other devices so easy and convenient and why LG G Pad 10.1 offers the best core technologies of our G series smartphones.”
LG has not yet revealed any pricing for the new tablet.
