LG decided not to wait till IFA opens its doors in Berlin next week and announced its first tablet in a long time, the LG G Pad 8.3. The slate was rumored and leaked a bunch of times till now, but it’s finally a real thing, pictured below.


This product is part of the premium G Series lineup and it packs a Full HD 8.3 inch display on an 8 inch type body. The product packs a 4600 mAh battery and it only weighs 338 grams. The G Pad integrates a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor with 1.7 GHz quad core processor and it also offers a revolutionary new feature called QPair.

QPair allows you to connect with multiple devices. This means that every call and message from a smartphone connected to the G Pad, will be shown on the tablet. This means me think of the BlackBerry PlayBook for some reason… Anyway, the device features enhanced multitaksing via a feature called Slide Aside, that involves sliding currently open apps off to the side with a 3 finger swipe.

There’s also QSlide controls for up to 3 different apps in one window. Back to the specs, we get 16 GB of storage, 2 GB RAM, a 5 MP back camera, Android 4.2.2 and the device will be available in black or white. Launch in stores is in Q4.
