Also known as the V500, LG's upcoming G Pad tablet is getting closer to its unveiling. Previous rumors mentioned a Snapdragon 800 processor and a screen size of 9.8-inch, next to an impressive resolution of 1,920X1,200 pixels.

Now, information confirmed by official LG sources claims the G Pad will feature an 8.3-inch display and a Snapdragon 600 processor. This is the LG G Pad information mentioned in this last report:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 600
  • Display: 8.3-inch WXUGA (1,920X1,200 resolution) with 350 nits brightness and 60% color gamut
  • Variants: WiFi and LTE

The WiFi variant will be built for the Korean Market, while the other will be sold in the United States. The same official sources mentioned Verizon Mobile as the first US mobile carrier to receive the LG G Pad. Unfortunately, the date of this event is unknown.

Regarding the unveiling of the LG G Pad, all the previous rumors have been confirmed once again - the 8.3-inch Android tablet is expected to be shown next month in Berlin at IFA 2013.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
