It’s been more than two years since LG did anything arguably significant on the tablet market and recent LG G Pad rumors tried to anticipate it’s 2013 IFA product unveiling. IFA is still about a week away but the South Koreans officially announced the LG G Pad 8.3.
LG brags about the phablet packing the first Full HD screen on an eight-inch form factor. The slate is equipped with a 1.7GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, has an 8.3-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200) display with a PPI rating of 273 PPI, and has 16GB of internal storage in addition to 2GB of RAM. There’s a five-megapixel main camera paired with a 1.3MP webcam, and everything is powered by a 4,600mAh battery. The G Pad 8.3 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, measures 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3mm and 338g, while being available in black and white.
While there’s no word on pricing yet, the LG G Pad 8.3 should land globally, including North America, Europe and Asia as well as other regions, starting Q4 2013.
