The tablet is LG’s entry to the premium tablet market, offering a 10.1″ screen with ‘ultra-slim’ bezels and a FullHD resolution screen. The tablet will be available in Wi-Fi and LTE iterations, though this, like some of the other hardware configurations will differ by markets. There’s reports that the tablet will include a full-size USB-port, a rumour backed up by renders of the 8″ version on the LG Korea website.

Software wise, the tablet will come with Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) with customised LG inclusions such as Q Memo Plus (Q Memo +), ‘Reader Mode’ and LG’s Dual-Window mode for running apps side-by-side. The LG G Pad II 10.1 will also come with Microsoft Office apps pre-installed which will include Word, Excel and PowerPoint, making the tablet also a good match for the business market.
The LG GPad II 10.1 will launch next month at IFA and then in Europe, as well as Korea in LTE and Wi-Fi versions and then move to the United States. Launch information beyond that hasn’t been announced but we’ve contacted LG Australia to see if they will be launching here.
