LG G Pad 8.3 officially announced; slate rolls out in North America during Q4
LG has made it official. The LG G Pad 8.3 has been officially announced by the Korean manufacturer and has the first FHD display on an 8 inch slate. The actual size of the glass is 8.3 inches, carrying a resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). A quad-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor is under the hood. Using the QPair app, each call and message that appears on a smartphone will also appear on the tablet and simple replies can be send through the G Pad.

With the 8.3 inch screen, the LG G Pad 8.3 offers an updated version of QSlide, which lets you choose between three different apps at the same time thanks to the larger glass. With Slide Aside, using a three finger slide allows you to move an open app off to the side of the screen and open a new one. The KnockON feature allows users to turn the slab on or off by tapping on the screen.

The LG G Pad 8.3 features 2GB of RAM, with 16GB of native storage. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.2MP respectively and a 4600mAh cell keeps the lights on. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed and the tablet will be available in black and white, weighing 338g.

The game plan is to have the tablet launched in the fourth quarter in North America, Europe, Asia and other regions. Pricing will be revealed down the road. As we pointed out before, the LG G Pad 8.3 looks like the big brother of the LG G2.
