LG G Pad 8.3 render shows a resemblance to the LG G2

LG G Pad 8.3 render shows a resemblance to the LG G2
Earlier Monday, we showed you a video teaser produced by LG for its LG G Pad 8.3. But one thing that the video didn't show was the actual tablet. For that, we turn our attention to a published report out of Korea that shows LG's now confirmed new Android powered slate compared with the upcoming LG G2 smartphone.

With the same thin thin bezels, curves and the top-placed speaker grille, the apple (no, not that Apple) doesn't fall far from the tree with the LG G Pad 8.3, which obviously takes some design cues from the eagerly awaited LG G2. Besides the render, the report out of Korea also confirms that the 8.3 inch screen on the G Pad will offer FHD resolution (1920 x 1200). Additionally, the LG G Pad 8.3 is expected to be unveiled at the IFA 2013 show in Berlin.

This will be LG's first tablet since 2011 when the LG Optimus Pad was released, powered by the Honeycomb build of Android.

LG's time of misery is over I guess...! Its time we start taking LG into account when we buy a tab or a phone.. I'm sick of hearing people just hating LG just because its 'LG'. In which almost all of them have never used an LG device...!

Oh sure, big resemblance indeed... When you discount the changing of the placements of the LG logo from the bottom to the top, the moving of the FFC from the left side to the right side, and the movement of the front speaker from top bezel centered to all the way flush against the top. And then do we even know if the G Pad 8.3 will have the G2's back-mounted controls? Oh yes, for round-edged rectangles, these two are dead ringers.

I've been looking for almost this exact tablet. This will do. I was hoping for an updated xyboard 8.2 but this will most likely be more affordable.

I find LG's UI very fluid and lag free when playing around with even a mid range model in the carphone warehouse, I'll await to see what they hold in store for the tablet. What they achieved with the G2 is a milestone for them, it only makes the LG G3 in 2014 all the more exciting with no bezels at all or a wrap around screen design. I think LG kinda let slip of the G3's specs last week, potential 5.5 inch screen with a 1440p display powered by their own ARM 57/53 big.LITTLE chipset.

1440p in a phone so unnecessary and wasteful... Spend money making screens more power efficient/look better and stop the resolution war. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5mLjKI968g

Hey, I'm not disagreeing with you but you know somehow that LG or possibly Lenovo and Huawei will add this for boasting rights when you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference, unless of course you happen to be clark kent with telescopic vision.

The new G2 has the G-RAM. Its saves battery power.

The Samsung copying is becoming embarrassing at this point.

That's a nice tablet LG. But I thought they stop making tablets.

Holy bezel!

When it comes to tablets, it is natural that there should be somewhat of a bezel on the top and bottom so you can hold the device in landscape mode comfortably.

Unbalance bezel of phones/tablets are less of appeal for me.

I mean, the sides bezel are ok, but the top and bottom must be equal, and there's a lot of space for front panel speaker.
