LG G Pad X 10.1 launches this week on AT&T, brings the old Snapdragon 800 back in spotlight
AT&T today announced a brand new tablet made by LG. Called G Pad X 10.1, the slate is similar to the G Pad II that LG will showcase later this week at IFA 2015.
As its name suggests, the LG G Pad X 10.1 sports a 10.1 inch display (with 1920 x 1200 pixels). The tablet runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box, and is - strangely - powered by Qualcomm's 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, which has been around for 2 years now. Other features include Dual Window split screen for multitasking, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a generous 7400 mAh battery. The new slate also comes with a DirectTV app pre-installed (though you'll need a subscription to actually watch movies and shows).
Interested customers will be able to buy AT&T's LG G Pad X 10.1 online starting September 4, and in retail stores starting September 11. The slate will cost $249.99 with a 2-year contract agreement, or $17.50 per month for 20 months with AT&T's Tablet Installment Plan.
Earlier this year, Verizon released a relatively similar (though smaller) tablet called LG G Pad X 8.3. This, of course, sports an 8.3-inch display.
