LG Unveils SD-615 Powered G Pad II 8.3 LTE Tablet

LG has added on to the G Pad family with the new G Pad II 8.3 LTE. This variant comes along to offer more choice to users not content with the G Pad II 8.0 or the G Pad II 10.1 Tablets.

As its name implies, the LG Gpad II 8.3 LTE bears a 8.3″ display bearing a resolution of 1920 x 1200. This is an upgrade over the G Pad II 8.0’s 1200 x 800 display. The tablet sports a brushed metal texture on the back, aiming to deliver a premium feel on the hand.


On the inside, the LG G Pad II 8.3 LTE packs in an octa-core Snapdragon 615, with 4x Cortex A-53 clocked at 1.5 GHz and 4x Cortex-A53 clocked at 1 GHz. The GPU is handled by the Adreno 405, while the 2GB RAM helps keep things ticking overall. There’s also 16GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot that supports upto 2TB of storage.

For the camera, the G Pad II 8.3 sports a 8 MP rear camera, and a 2 MP camera on the front. The tablet measures 216.8mm x 126.5mm x 8.8mm and weighs around 366 g, thanks in part to its 4,800 mAh non-removable battery. The tablet also packs in a stylus and support for 4G LTE, and runs on Android 5.1.1 which is surprising considering that it has been a while since Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been publicly released.

This tablet has been launched in the South Korean market, but there is no word on the price and availability in the rest of the world. It is only a matter of time that the device will make its way to other prominent LG markets.
