LG Electronics has announced the LG G Pad 8.3” tablet, the first slate to feature full HD (1920*1200) display on an 8” class tablet, a unique user-experience and wide range of connectivity features. The new slate is the first tablet from LG in years, which marks the comeback of the company to the market.

LG G Pad 8.3” is based on quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and is equipped with 2GB LPDDR2 memory, 16MB NAND flash eMMC storage, 5MP rear camera/1.3MP front camera and so on. The media tablet features 8.3” WUXGA (1920*1200 resolution, 273ppi pixen density), the first time for a 8”-class tablet. While maintaining its portability, the LG G Pad 8.3 squeezes in a powerful 4600mAh battery for long-lasting usage time but is still as light as a newspaper at just 338g.

“Complementing our G Series smartphones, the introduction of the LG G Pad 8.3 further strengthens LG’s premium lineup consisting of our most cutting-edge devices. Our G Pad is just another example of LG delivering devices with the unique selling points consumers around the world will appreciate,” said Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics mobile communications company.

The LG G Pad 8.3 meets the demanding requirements of the convergence age by improving connectivity between multiple devices. With the unique QPair app, every call and message received on a smartphone will appear on the G Pad for a true convergence experience. Users can then send simple replies through the LG G Pad 8.3”. QPair also allows the G Pad to easily connect to other manufacturers’ smartphone and tablets (Google Android 4.0 “Jelly Bean” OS recommended). Notes created on the G Pad’s QMemo can be seamlessly saved into users’ smartphones and shared from either device.

The LG G Pad 8.3 offers practical features that provide real-life benefits, such as enhanced multitasking. Thanks to its 8.3-inch Full HD Display, user experience (UX) features unique to the LG G Pad 8.3 are maximized for the large screen:

  • Slide Aside enables seamless multitasking by simply “sliding” currently open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe;
  • QSlide controls up to three different apps in one window with no interruption, especially convenient on a large screen;
  • KnockON turns the device on and off by tapping the display twice;

The LG G Pad 8.3 will be rolled out globally in key markets including North America, Europe and Asia as well as other regions starting in the fourth quarter of 2013. Prices will be announced at launch time.
