New LG G Pad 8.0 phones coming out

LG announces the arrival of a 4G variant / LTE of its new tablet G Pad 8.0. The configuration remains the same as the bundled software. Expected in the days to come out.

LG is back on the tablet market last year with the G Pad 8.3. He has since added three new models to its catalog, still under the banner G Pad but different sizes: 7, 8 and 10 inches. An almost complete range, which still lacked 4G. It will soon be available with the model of the environment, including a new variant has been officially announced by LG.

Little change expected

Since G Pad already based on a Snapdragon 400, LG has not had a lot of changes to make to extend the connectivity of its tablet. Simply replacing the processor implemented by another of the same series, but having a 4G modem. 4G / LTE version of the new LG G Pad 8.0 retains the characteristics of the Wi-Fi model, namely:

     IPS WXGA (1280 x 800) 8-inch
     a quad-core chipset clocked at 1.2GHz
     1 GB of RAM
     16 GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card)
     a 5 megapixel sensor on the back
     a 1.3 megapixel webcam on the front
     connectivity Wi-Fi / Bluetooth
     4200 mAh battery
     dimensions: 210.8 x 124.2 x 9.9 mm
     Weight: 344 grams

The software bundle is obviously not changed much either. G Pad 8.0 4G / LTE still runs Android, with a derivative overlay that of the latest smartphones of the brand. We thus find Knock Code for locking or Gesture Shot to trigger selfies a simple hand gesture, in addition to specific functions such as Q Pair to sync with an Android smartphone.

LG will sell the 4G LTE Version / G Pad 8.0 in mid-August in Europe, or very soon. Follow Central America, South America, Asia and Eastern countries. No price has yet been announced.
