LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet Has Just Been Made Official

Few days ago LG released a video teaser for its new Android tablet offering asking people what makes a tablet right for them. We thought that LG would unveil the tab at IFA event in Berlin this September, however the Korean electronics company just made it official. LG announced the LG G Pad 8.3. Read on to see more information about this device after the jump.

LG claims that the G Pad 8.3 is the first tablet to offer 1920x1200 full HD screen. 273 ppi (pixels per inch) which according to Gizmag has never happened before for an 8-icher tablet, although Google Nexus 7 has 323 ppi, it only sports a 7-inch screen. Under the hood will be a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor paired with a 2GB of RAM. The G Pad will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, snappers are at 5MP for the back facing one and a 1.3-megapixel on the front. This Android will come in white and in black color selections with 16GB storage space inside. Unfortunately, it does not support microSD card for memory expansion purposes. A juicy 4,600 mAh battery will also be a part of the machine.

The Korea-based tech firm does not only offer great tablet design which is very similar to its newest LG G2 smartphone and powerful features with their new device and tablet, they also offer self-developed software and apps which will be a part of G Pad 8.3. One of those is what they call the "KnockOn", where a user only needs to twice-tap the screen to turn and off the display. QPair is also in the show which will enable the tablet to be paired with a smartphone so the user can manage calls and messages on the tablet, any Android smartphone can be paired but phones are recommended to be running on a Jelly Bean OS. QSlide will allow the tablet to run up to 3 apps at once. For apps that is not needed anymore, simply slide if off using three fingers.

LG G Pad 8.3's pricing has yet to be revealed by LG but like what has been mentioned above, the device will be available in the 4th quarter of the year which will most likely compete head to head with Apple's expected iPad Mini with Retina display and Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 3 once announced.
