Rumored LG G Pad 2 specs appear; slate to feature 8.3-inch 1080p screen, SD-805 SoC?
Tipster Leaksfly posted on his Weibo page today, what he says are the specs of the LG G Pad 2. The slate is expected to come with an 8.3-inch screen, making this a sequel to the LG G Pad 8.3. The screen will have a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 805 chipset will be under the hood. That comes with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 420 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of expandable memory. That compares with the 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage available on the original model.

The LG G Pad 2 is expected to feature an 8MP rear snapper, with a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. The tablet will come with Android 5.1 pre-installed right out of the box.

According to Leaksfly, the LG G Pad 2 will be released in October. That will be roughly two years after the LG G Pad 8.3 was released on October 7, 2013. Pricing and availability are unknown for the moment. Surely LG will release all of that information once the slate is unveiled.


Thanks for the tip!

Where are all the new 10.1 or even better 10.5" 32gb tablets , Sony has just released one but that is it samsung only 16gb" which is what I am on now but run out of space weekly even with sd card.

1080 is budget so replace the SoC with the MT8173 and price it at 150$ and it's all good. With the 805 at 180$ it's not worth it anymore. Not that i expect LG to price it like that. Funny that Apple will be a value leader (among big brands) once the ipad mini gen 2 price drops in a few months from 299 to....w/e they decide. Asus has a high res 200$ 8 inch tab but they are selling it with a downclocked Atom that ruins it, instead of the announced SoC.

Uh.. 1080p+Snapdragon 805 (not to mention the fact its a tablet) should theoretically mean it outperforms the Note 4.

How is the G Pad 2 the successor to the G Pad 8.3? The successor to the G Pad 8.3 is the X8.3 that released earlier this month on Verizon exclusively.

This device will most likely run very well, and for longer periods. Just because the 805 is a year old doesn't mean it's a bad chip. Point of fact with the abomination that is the 810 the 805 is still the best snapdragon chip.

This will be an excellent replacement for my original G Pad 8.3. I've enjoyed my tablet for a long time, but the S600 inside has been showing its weakness from day 1 pretty much. S805 is a HUGE upgrade.

I'm sorry but I don't think the sequel to the 2013 G Pad 8.3 warrants me to buy the new version, especially after residing the specs here on this article. I have the Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 LTE variant and it works like a dream in a 2015 world. I think the ASUS ZenPad 8 (I think that's what it's called) going for $200 dollars that has a stylus pen with the unit, is the best buy in the tablet market today. It's good to know that LG has the next generation G Pad in the works and whenever my G Pad LTE bites the dust, I may get the second generation model. Love the slate that LG made. Just only wish that LG will set the price of this version a lot more attractive than 2013. Hell, even with the tablet almost being two years, it's still selling about $200 to 240 brand new on sites like eBay and such.

Sounds good to me. My G Pad 8.3 is getting a bit long in the tooth, but there's still many things I love about it. I'm saving up for a Tab S 8.4, but maybe I'll end up getting this instead.

I'm typing this on an LG G3 , it is a buggy laggy crashy piece of junk, my note 4 is lightyears ahead, I dont see why anyone would defend LG, this phone is trash!

Well the G3 is not considered LG's brightest hour, QHD on a Snapdragon 801 pretty much spells doom n gloom.

Even the SD808 with the LG G4 performed poorly in my tests. That was at launch though. Maybe a few updates have improved the performance but I wasn't impressed.
