LG unveils an LTE-enabled version of its G Pad 8.0 slate

LG unveils an LTE-enabled version of its G Pad 8.0 slate
Several months ago, LG unveiled its latest crop of G Pad tablets, the LG G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0, and G Pad 10.1. The devices were to stand up to Samsung's fourth generation of Tab series, which got announced in the beginning of April this year. However, all of Sammy's Tab 4 tablets supported LTE, whereas LG's offerings were devoid of the useful connectivity feature. Up until now, that is, as LG just revealed that it is on the verge of releasing an LTE-enabled version of one of its latest G Pad slates, the G Pad 8.0.

Apart from the inclusion of LTE support, the LG G Pad 8.0 does not differ from its regular, LTE-lacking peer. The tablet is still graced with most of the interface and user experience features that can be found in LG G3's bag – Touch & Shoot, Smart Keyboard, Gesture Shot, and Knock Code are all on board. The specs sheet is the same as well: a quad-core Snapdragon 400 clicking and ticking at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage, 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, a 5MP snapper on the back, and a 4,200mAh juicer under the hood. Not that we expected anything to have changed.

We won't have to patiently wait for the LTE version of the G Pad 8.0 much, because the slate will grace select European countries later this week, while specific markets across Central/South America and Asia will follow shortly after.
