After introducing the LG G Pad II 8.0 in South Korea earlier this month, LG announced on Monday that it will unveil a 10.1-inch version of the LG G Pad II at IFA next month in Berlin. The slab will feature a 1200 x 1920 WUXGA resolution display. That works out to a pixel density of 224ppi. Powering the tablet is the Snapdragon 800 SoC, carrying a 2.26GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU.

One of the main features of the LG G Pad II 10.1 will be its 7400mAh battery, which LG says is the largest in its class. The tablet will also feature something that the manufacturer calls Reader Mode, which is supposed to make reading eBooks easier on the eyes by removing the blue from the display backlight. This should reduce eye fatigue and blurred vision. Dual Window allows you to multitask by running two applications side-by-side. And Quick Memo+ lets users share and save a memo they created on any screen. The tablet comes with Microsoft Office for Android Tablet pre-installed, and the slate's owner gets an additional 100GB of free OneDrive cloud storage for two years.


Pricing and availability will be announced by LG at IFA, which begins on September 4th and runs through the 9th. There will be a Wi-Fi only version and one that supports LTE. The tablet will be offered in certain markets in North America, Europe and Asia.

Yep, if they price this right it could be amazing. Especially with that battery and lower resolution screen, it would be great for media on flights.

S800 for a device that will have the majority of its shelf life in 2016? It doesn't seem right. I guess it is better than the S615 but surely the S805 or S808 would've been a better choice?

There were a few articles about a month back about how the new G pad 8.3 would have a S805, I'm still holding my breath for that one. At least for the first generation of G Pad tablets, the 8.3 inch version had the most powerful specs.

Maybe SD805 or 801, but not 808, it's still power hungry, even if it doesn't overheat. The 800 should work out well for long battery and enough power to do most stuff for a low price. Don't think it's going to be very expensive.
