LG G Pad 8.3 officially detailed, global rollout in Q4

LG G Pad 8.3 officially detailed, global rollout in Q4The history books show that the folks at LG traditionally have trouble keeping it in their pants in the days leading up to major trade shows, and this week – the week of IFA in Berlin – is no different.

The LG G Pad 8.3 is set to make its debut at IFA imminently, but why not issue a full press release giving the game away just a few days before?

Looking at the accompanying LG G Pad 8.3 press shot, it looks very much like a tablet version of the LG G2 smartphone, which is kinda the point I guess. Don’t expect any buttons on the rear though.

The South Koreans boast that the LG G Pad 8.3 features the first full HD display on an 8in-class tablet. Specifically, it’s an 8.3in display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200, so that’s 273PPI. Indeed, at 8.3in, LG reckons it’s nailed the “optimum size of a tablet”.

Other key LG G Pad 8.3 specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front shooter, Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.2), and 4,600mAh battery.

As for features, QPair allows you to pair a Jelly Bean smartphone with the tablet, meaning every message and call pops up on the LG G Pad 8.3, while QSlide can display three apps in one window.

Inevitably we’ll learn more about LG G Pad 8.3 price and availability at IFA, though LG has already confirmed that it’ll start rolling out in Q4, eventually hitting North America, Europe and Asia.

Q-slide sounds interesting, will be good to see how that works since I think multitasking is quite a useful feature on tablets
