Android tablets tend to get a bit of a bad rap, but for those of us who actually use them and like using them, it’s always good to see a new piece of hardware announced. Today, LG have released the latest in their G Pad line, the LG G Pad III 8.0. If you couldn’t tell from the name, it is an 8″ FHD Android 6.0 tablet coming in with decidedly mid-tier specs, take a look below:
|Display||8.0″ 1920 x 1200 IPS LCD|
|Processor||Snapdragon 617 Octa-core @ 1.5 GHz|
|SD Card||Yes, tp to 128 GB|
USB A (yes a second USB A type port)
3.5 mm headphone jack
|OS Version||Android 6.0|
|Size||124.1 x 210.7 7.9 mm|
With a Snapdragon 617 processor, Android 6.0 and 32GB of internal storage the G Pad III should be a solid performer. There is no doubt this is a “mid-range” device, but it seems the tablet market has settled more toward the middle of the market than the top.
The device has only been launched in Korea at this stage, with some hints of international variants that MAY include Cellular connectivity. Previous versions of the LG pad have come to the Australian market, and so we have contacted LG Australia and will let you know if there is anything to announce locally.
