Seoul: LG after the success of its flagship device LG G2, the company has announced its first ever 8.3 inch G Pad.

According to reports the device makes its appearance in the fourth quarter of this year.

The LG G Pad Pad 8.3 is the first full HD display tablet in the smaller 8-inch tablet category, which may attract many customers looking out to use the tablet to view lots of video.

“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,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Our G Pad is just another example of LG delivering devices with the unique selling points consumers around the world will appreciate.”

The LG G Pad will have an 8.3-inch WUXGA screen with 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and a display density of 273 pixels per inch (ppi). The device will be powered by 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor.

The tablet is expected to have a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera including 2 GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. A 4,600mAh battery powers the latest LG G Pad 8.3.

The slate will come pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. However, with the recent launch of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system, customers would have hoped that the tablet is packed with the latest Jelly Bean flavor.

The handset will be available in two color options: black and white. The LG G Pad 8.3 measures 8.53 x 4.98 x 0.32 inch and weighs 11.92 ounces.

The company may find it difficult to make room for the LG G Pad 8.3 in the highly-competitive tablet arena so will have to wait and see if many customers are attracted to the latest LG offering.
