Earlier in the month, we brought you word that South Korea, LG’s home country, will be offering the LG G Pad 8.3 on October 14th, with the rest of the world to follow shortly after that. I guess LG made good on their promise with folks over in the US being able to enjoy the LG G Pad 8.3 now, as this tablet will run on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
What are some of the features of this particular tablet? For starters, as its name suggests, it will arrive with an 8.3” IPS display that will boast of a 1080p Full HD resolution (1920×1200) at 273 ppi pixel density. The processor which will power this puppy happens to be a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, where it will be ably aided by 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory which can be further expanded using a microSD memory card slot. Of course, with a screen arriving in that size, it will need a reasonable battery to go along with it, too, which is why LG packed in a 4,600-mAh battery.
Apart from that, it will arrive with a 5-megapixel camera at the back and comes with a slew of software features to get you started right out of the box. The LG G Pad 8.3 will retail for $349.99 a pop if you’re interested. [Press Release]
