Back in 2013, LG announced a new tablet in the form of the LG G Pad 8.3. The tablet packed some pretty decent specs and according to the rumors, it was also expected to make its way onto Verizon’s network where presumably we would be able to purchase the device with 4G LTE connectivity. Well the good news is that thanks to the ever reliable @evleaks, a press rendering of the LG G Pad 8.3 for Verizon has made its way online. Unfortunately @evleaks did not mention when we might be able to expect the tablet to be announced by Verizon but given that the tablet has been out for a while now, we can only hope it will be soon when Verizon makes the announcement.
In case you missed our coverage and our review from last year, the LG G Pad will sport an 8.3-inch 1920×1200 IPS display with a pixel density of 273PPI. The tablet will also be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocked at 1.7GHz and will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and will be available in either 16GB or 32GB storage options. Unfortunately it will only arrive with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean but hopefully we will see it updated to Android 4.4 KitKat in the near future, or at least before it is announced for Verizon. Also based on the rendering, it looks like apart from your usual WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity options, the G Pad 8.3 will also support Verizon’s 4G LTE networks.
