LG so far seems to have been over shadowed by its more illustrious domestic rival, Samsung though things seems to be poised for a change post the launch of the G2. LG’s latest flagship smartphone device has garnered some positive reviews and the company now is training its gun on the tablet segment where it has largely been a non-player so far.
However, as per the details that have emerged, it could be a very unusual 8.3 inch tablet that LG might be readying for a launch. The tablet though will still be handy given the extremely thin bezels that the tablet is reported to come with. With pixel count assuming just as importance as other aspects of the device, it’s good to see LG considering no less than a full HD 1920 x 1200 pixel display for the tablet that is believed to have been named the G Pad.
The source, which incidentally is a Greek website by the name Techblog further claim the tablet will be thin and light which again is another quality that manufacturers are eager to go after. LG is also said to offer voice calling capability to the device which if true will ensure the G Pad won’t be relevant for a US release unless a modified version is introduced.
Unfortunately, that’s about all that is known of the device so far, leaving us to guess what chip the tablet will come powered with. However, given that the G2 has under its hoods the Snapdragon 800 chip, chances are that the G Pad too will benefit from the same as well, more so since the G Pad too is being projected to have voice calling feature. A 2 GB RAM is being touted to go with the quad core chip.
More details are missing though with the IFA event coming up next month itself, chances are that we could be blessed with even a working prototype during the IFA.
