After announcing a new lineup of G Pad tablets last month, LG has stated that the 7-inch variant would be rolling out across Europe later this week, with the 8- and 10.1-inch models set to follow suit in the coming weeks.
Whereas the original G Pad 8.3 was targeted at the high-end segment, the new tablets are mid-tier offerings. As far as the hardware is concerned, all three tablets feature identical specs, with the obvious variations in screen size and battery.
Broadly, you'll get a screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800, 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core CPU, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory (8 gigs on the 7-inch model), microSD card slot expandable up to 64 GB, 5 MP rear / 1.3 MP front camera (3 MP on the 7-inch version), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB v2.0 connectivity along with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The 7-inch model boasts a 4000 mAh battery, the 8-inch version 4200 mAh and the 10.1-inch G Pad 8000 mAh battery.
The tablets include LG's proprietary features like Knock Code, which allows you to unlock the display with a double tap gesture, and QPair 2.0, which lets you pair your tablet with your smartphone to answer calls.
The 7-inch G Pad will be available in a total of six color variants once it launches: Black, White, Red, Luminous Orange and Luminous Blue. LG said that pricing and availability details will be announced once the tablets hit the local markets.
