Rumored LG G Pad 2 specs appear; slate to feature 8.3-inch 1080p screen, SD-805 SoC?
Tipster Leaksfly posted on his Weibo page today, what he says are the specs of the LG G Pad 2. The slate is expected to come with an 8.3-inch screen, making this a sequel to the LG G Pad 8.3. The screen will have a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 805 chipset will be under the hood. That comes with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 420 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable memory. That compares with the 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage available on the original model.

The LG G Pad 2 is expected to feature an 8MP rear snapper, with a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. The tablet will come with Android 5.1 pre-installed right out of the box.

According to Leaksfly, the LG G Pad 2 will be released in October. That will be roughly two years after the LG G Pad 8.3 was released on October 7, 2013. Pricing and availability are unknown for the moment. Surely LG will release all of that information once the slate is unveiled.


Thanks for the tip!

Where are all the new 10.1 or even better 10.5" 32gb tablets , Sony has just released one but that is it samsung only 16gb" which is what I am on now but run out of space weekly even with sd card.

1080 is budget so replace the SoC with the MT8173 and price it at 150$ and it's all good. With the 805 at 180$ it's not worth it anymore. Not that i expect LG to price it like that.
Funny that Apple will be a value leader (among big brands) once the ipad mini gen 2 price drops in a few months from 299 to....w/e they decide. Asus has a high res 200$ 8 inch tab but they are selling it with a downclocked Atom that ruins it, instead of the announced SoC.

Uh.. 1080p+Snapdragon 805 (not to mention the fact its a tablet) should theoretically mean it outperforms the Note 4.

How is the G Pad 2 the successor to the G Pad 8.3? The successor to the G Pad 8.3 is the X8.3 that released earlier this month on Verizon exclusively.

This will have fantastic performance @ 1080p.. The gpu performance is better then the adreno 418 found in the snapdragon 808 and the performance of the 805 at 1080p gpu wise is easily on par with the 430 and others. The 805 can perform just as good in longer sustained workloads as the 810 if not better due to thermal throttling of the 810 and the 805 being more heat efficient right of the bat and also it being put into a tablet now , which has much more thermal headroom and can run at its maxiumum sustained performance for longer then smartphones can

If the price is right , it is a very good deal

Has 4k capabilities, has h.265 decode , etc, 805 is still very good and its really first time a OEM has stuck a 805 on 1080p resolution now if im not mistaken so yeah

S5 Plus has 1080p/S805. They sell it on EE, my aunt has it.

Ah, is the S5 Plus and S5 LTE-a the same though? I know the S5 LTE-a version which has a 805 is quad hd resolution but didnt know the s5 plus was 1080p or that they are seperate devices(thought they were same lol)

Yep lte-a has quad hd

S5 plus got 1080

http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s5_plus-6748.php

Much better GPU benchmarks than note 4 cause of that 1080p

Even galaxy alpha with 720p have much better perfomance while on 801

The Exynos 5430 Alpha absolutely flew. Sure it used Apple low resolution tactics to achieve it's performance but it flew.

I would imagine it with 805, it would be a killer

That's synthetics.

Any real proofs?

26. Ordinary (Posts: 2318; Member since: 23 Apr 2015)


The only proof that I could find, its logic that SoC will perform better on GPU benchmarks with smaller resolution.

Adreno 418 IS better then 420 And 430 ... Adreno 418 HAs A great performance And its the most optimized GPU on any smartphone

Sure? You call "optimisation" lags and slowdowns of Adreno 420 in native resolution games?

Not as good as what the competition offers and for a new device..

This device will most likely run very well, and for longer periods. Just because the 805 is a year old doesn't mean it's a bad chip. Point of fact with the abomination that is the 810 the 805 is still the best snapdragon chip.

This will be an excellent replacement for my original G Pad 8.3. I've enjoyed my tablet for a long time, but the S600 inside has been showing its weakness from day 1 pretty much. S805 is a HUGE upgrade.

14. miket1737 (Posts: 2544; Member since: 17 Mar 2013)


Yeah it really is.... At least over 75% gpu performance and like 50% faster cpu over the s600. It also helps too that Google's flagship phone has the 805 which means they tuning code to s805 capabilitlites as main focus for now until next nexus comes out

I'm sorry but I don't think the sequel to the 2013 G Pad 8.3 warrants me to buy the new version, especially after residing the specs here on this article. I have the Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 LTE variant and it works like a dream in a 2015 world. I think the ASUS ZenPad 8 (I think that's what it's called) going for $200 dollars that has a stylus pen with the unit, is the best buy in the tablet market today.

It's good to know that LG has the next generation G Pad in the works and whenever my G Pad LTE bites the dust, I may get the second generation model. Love the slate that LG made. Just only wish that LG will set the price of this version a lot more attractive than 2013. Hell, even with the tablet almost being two years, it's still selling about $200 to 240 brand new on sites like eBay and such.

Sounds good to me. My G Pad 8.3 is getting a bit long in the tooth, but there's still many things I love about it. I'm saving up for a Tab S 8.4, but maybe I'll end up getting this instead.

I'm typing this on an LG G3 , it is a buggy laggy crashy piece of junk, my note 4 is lightyears ahead, I dont see why anyone would defend LG, this phone is trash!

Well the G3 is not considered LG's brightest hour, QHD on a Snapdragon 801 pretty much spells doom n gloom.

Even the SD808 with the LG G4 performed poorly in my tests. That was at launch though. Maybe a few updates have improved the performance but I wasn't impressed.
