LG has today announced a new G Pad tablet, offering the second version of their G Pad 8.3.
The tablet is fairly standard looking, though appears to be metallic like it’s predecessor. Also like its predecessor it comes with an 8.3″ screen with FullHD resolution, perfect for watching multimedia content on. There is the addition of a Stylus, which should add a little functionality, though LG hasn’t expanded on additional functionality for the stylus. LG has also included a full-sized USB 2.0 port for the tablet.
The internals have been updated with a new generation Snapdragon 615 processor and better cameras, though it still has the same internal storage and RAM as the original.
Full specs for the new G Pad 8.3 include:
|Display:||IPS 8.3-inch Full HD WUXGA (1,920 × 1,200)|
|Processor:||Octa-core Snapdragon 615 (1.5GHz Quad + 1.0 GHz Quad)|

The G Pad 8.3 gen 2 will come with Android 5.1.1 installed, with LG’s usual customised software on top. As previously announced earlier this year, LG will include Microsoft apps, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint pre-installed on the tablet.
LG has only announced the tablet for their domestic market at this stage, but we’re hoping to see something from LG regarding international availability soon.
