LG announces G Pad 8.3 Android tablet

LG has taken the wraps off their brand new Android tablet – the LG G Pad 8.3. The G Pad 8.3 has a 1920×1200 resolution display, which LG claims makes it the first 8-inch tablet with a Full HD display.

Other features on the G Pad 8.3 include a Snapdragon 600 chipset with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.7GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of LPDDR2 RAM and 16GB internal storage space. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera and on the front is a 1.3 megapixel shooter. The G Pad 8.3 is powered by a 4,600mAh battery but LG hasn’t made any claims regarding the battery life. The G Pad 8.3 runs on Android 4.2.2.

The G Pad 8.3 measures at 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3mm, which is slightly more than the Nexus 7, which measures 200 x 114 x 8.65mm. It also weighs a bit more at 338g, compared to the Nexus 7′s 290g. LG hasn’t specificed any network connectivity so it’s likely that the G Pad 8.3 is Wi-Fi only, unlike the Nexus 7 which also supports LTE.

The LG G Pad 8.3 will go on sale in North America, Europe and Asia as well as other regions starting in the fourth quarter of 2013. No prices have been mentioned so far and will be revealed at launch.
