LG may have made its European fans feel special when previewing the G Pad II 10.1 and announcing it would come to IFA Berlin later this week, but ultimately, American lovers of LTE-capable Android tabs will get first dibs.
Rebranded as G Pad X 10.1, and endowed with a much more generous 32GB internal storage space, the Lollipop 10-incher is slated to go on sale at AT&T on Friday, September 4. Through September 11, you’ll only be able to order the tablet online, while starting next Friday, the carrier’s physical stores should also receive inventory.
Aside from doubling down on data hoarding room, the G Pad X 10.1 seems to differ from the international G Pad II 10.1 by upgrading the 5MP rear camera to an 8 megapixel unit as well. The newest Android build, 5.1.1, runs the software show, with an aging but still respectable quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC driving your gaming, web browsing and multimedia needs.
Multitasking is covered by an appropriate 2GB RAM count, there’s microSD support for expanding the on-board storage, and a 7,400 mAh battery keeps the lights on. AT&T doesn’t provide details on device dimensions, but by the looks of it, the G Pad X 10.1 and G Pad II 10.1 are identical on the outside, which means they probably both measure 7.8 mm thick and tip the scales at roughly 490 grams.
The high-resolution 1,920 x 1,200 IPS LCD screen is a key selling point here, alongside productivity-enhancing software add-ons such as Quick Memo+, Dual Window and Reader Mode. All in all, this feels a relatively smart purchase at $250 on-contract, or $17.50 a month for 20 months with installment plans.
