Octa-core LG G Pad X 8.3 launches tomorrow on Verizon; the carrier's LG G4 arrives on June 4

Verizon Wireless today announced a brand new Android tablet made by LG, while also informing us that its LG G4 smartphone will be available to buy starting June 4 (just as rumored).

Called LG G Pad X 8.3, the new tablet is - as previously reported - the successor to LG's G Pad 8.3 from 2013. It runs Android Lollipop, sports an 8.3-inch Full HD IPS display, and is powered by an octa-core 1.5 GHz processor (probably a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, though Verizon isn't mentioning this). Other features include LTE, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, full size USB port, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 4800 mAh battery.

Verizon will sell the LG G Pad X 8.3 (pictured on the left) starting tomorrow, May 28, for $129.99 on contract, or $299.99 off contract. You'll also be able to get the tablet for $12.49 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge.

Also tomorrow is when Verizon will start accepting pre-orders for the LG G4, which, as we already mentioned, will be released on June 4. The G4 will be offered for $22.91 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge, or for $549.99 off contract. Customers who are buying the G4 from Verizon will be able to purchase the G Pad X 8.3 for only $49.99 on contract. Interested?

A successor with the exact same amount of power? They should've went 808 or something.

This is just gonna be a blown-up version of Lollipop. They oversimplified the UI too much. Kitkat is the last true Android.

The upcoming Tab S2 is going to be the best Android tablet on the market, don't waste your money and time on anything else.

Until the next iPad would beat your Tab S2 just like last year with the Air 2. BTW, there were some leaks on the specs. It's "meeh".

I said "best Android tablet". Do you have a reading comprehension problem? I don't use or like Apple products, so the Air 3 is completely irrelevant to my interests.

As someone who just switched from the G2 to the G3 and still uses both phones, I can confidently tell you that the G2 was not LG's last good phone. The G3 is widely considered to be a substantial improvement on the G2, though the shorter battery life and occasional lag in OS navigation are the first comments made in a discussion comparing the devices to each other. And for the "More You Know" folks out there -- one of the less talked about improvements in the G3's IPS LCD screen over the G2 is the method of polarization used. Try looking at your G2 in landscape mode through polarized sunglasses and tell me what you see. Wait, I'll tell you. NOTHING! The method of polarization employed on the G3 screen was changed and allows for MUCH better visibility when viewed in landscape mode behind polarized sunglasses. Tell me you don't wanna hum that "More You Know" jingle.

I have such high hopes for the 5.2" Nexus phone LG is making. I was looking at getting rid of my Nexus 5 but if they can come up with a refreshed G2/Nexus 5, I'll just stay put awhile longer.
