LG has lifted the lid on its latest tablet this morning: a 4G “LTE” version of its G Pad 8.0 tablet – which is essentially the bigger brother of the LG G3.
Here’s the spec – it isn’t quite as fast or as powerful as the G3 phone, but certainly appears to be a serviceable tablet:
- Display: 8.0-inch IPS (1280 x 800 / WXGA)
- Chipset: 1.2GHz Quad-Core
- Memory: 16GB eMMC / 1GB RAM / microSD slot
- Camera: Rear 5MP / Front 1.3MP
- Battery: 4200mAh
- Size: 210.8 x 124.2 x 9.9mm
- Weight: 344g
- Connectivity: Wi-Fi / LTE
- Colour: Black / White / Luminous Orange / Luminous Blue
- Other: QPair 2.0 / Touch & Shoot / Gesture Shot / Smart Keyboard / Knock Code
LG is particularly keen to highlight “Gesture Shot”, which apparently lets you take selfies by waving at the camera, and knock-code unlocking similar to what was on the G3. Also interesting is QPair 2.0, which lets you pair your tablet with a smartphone to take calls and send texts through the tablet (a bit like what Apple and Samsung has recently announced for their devices).
The G Pad 8.0 apparently starts shipping in Europe this week with the UK “confirmed for 2014″.
