LG G Pad 8.3 Teased In Short Film


Share this Post

LG has made a small comeback in the past year thanks to its partnership with Google on the Nexus 4. It's now hoping to make a similar impact on the mobile industry with a new flagship smartphone - the LG G2. Of course, it wouldn't be a comeback without a new tablet as well, and LG has that.

In a new video teaser released today, LG announced that a new tablet called the G Pad 8.3 is in the works. The teaser doesn't show the hardware as it instead opts to interview a bunch of random people about what they want out of a tablet. We learn that people want a small, but not too small, tablet that can be used indoors and outdoors for work and play. In short, it sounds like people want any of the broad range of 7 to 8-inch tablets currently on the market.

The video doesn't give us any idea of what to expect from the G Pad 8.3, but rumors from SlashGear spill the beans on what the supposed specs of the device are. The publication reports that the G Pad 8.3 will feature a 1920x1200 display that's powered by a quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. In short, the the G Pad 8.3 will probably perform similarly to the new Nexus 7.

So, when can we expect to see LG unveil its latest tablet? We're likely to see it at IFA 2013 next month. A number of other tech companies will likely be showing off new tablets as well so we'll get a good idea of how G Pad 8.3 stacks up against the competition.
