AT&T announces the LG G Pad F 8.0, available on May 29

Today AT&T took the wraps off a new Android tablet made by LG. It’s called G Pad F 8.0 and will be up for grabs at the carrier starting on May 29, which is next Friday. It bears some resemblance to the G Pad 8.0 from last year, both in terms of looks as well as specs.

The G Pad F 8.0 however comes with a built-in stylus and a full-size USB port. Those seem to be its main differentiating features. The screen is quoted as being an “HD+” IPS panel, which we assume means it has a resolution of 1,280×800.

The tablet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, coming with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and Adreno 305 GPU. The rear camera is a 5 MP unit, while the front-facing snapper isn’t detailed (though it could be 1.3 MP like the one in the G Pad 8.0). RAM amount isn’t mentioned either, yet internal storage is 16GB (of which 9.1GB are user-accessible), and expandable via microSD cards. The G Pad F 8.0 weighs 12 ounces (340g), and it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. The battery capacity is 4,200 mAh.

If you consider it interesting, you’ll be able to purchase the device for $149.99 with a two-year data contract. Alternatively, using AT&T’s tablet installment plan, you pay nothing upfront, and then $12.50 per month. At this point it’s unclear if we’ll ever see the G Pad F 8.0 launch at other carriers.
