LG announced its G Pad 8.3 in late summer, promising a worldwide release sometime in Q4. True to their word, the company is beginning its road back to tablet notoriety, promising to release the 8.3-inch slate in 30 countries, including Canada, by the end of the year.
The device rocks a 1920×1200 pixel IPS display, a 1.7Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 600 SoC, 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage (with a microSD slot), Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 4600mAh battery, a 5MP rear camera and 1.3MP front camera.
The tablet doesn’t look to be that impressive from a spec perspective, but its ability to synchronize data between an LG smartphone, including real-time calls and SMS interaction, makes it quite intriguing. We hope that LG cleans up its UI a bit for the tablet, too.
Look for the G Pad 8.3 in Canada sometime before the end of the year for around $499.
