A lot of rumors lately have indicated that LG is preparing to present the future Nexus 8. However, official information arrived yesterday that it is still a Google Play version of the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet. In this way, LG wanted to stop all skeptics and put an end to this story.
On the other hand, with the device itself, the Korean company wants to return to the tablet segment, where it was almost non-existent. The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is the right way to come back, as this very good device will sell for only $349!
LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition Specification
As for the features of the device itself, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is identical to the original model. The main features are an 8.3-inch full HD screen with a resolution of 1920 × 1200 pixels. The driving force will be provided by a Snapdragon 600 SoC processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz, with the help of 2GB of RAM.
There’s another 16GB of internal memory, a 5MP main camera and a 1.3MP auxiliary one. As this is a tablet of a special (read Google) edition, Android 4.4 Kitat has found its place as expected. Despite a decently large diagonal and a massive 4600mAh battery, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition weighs only 338 grams!
LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition first impression
LG has done a great job with Google with the great Nexus 5. Now he is back to finish what he started. The Korean manufacturer offers the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition for $ 349 (as much as the phone costs) – a tablet with a great design, on which the screen occupies most of the surface.
Interestingly, 8.3 denotes not only the diagonal of the screen, but also 8.3 mm at the waist. That would mean LG did a great job in every way. That statement gained weight if you notice that the LG tablet is equipped with an aluminum case.
All in all, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a slightly bigger brother of the Nexus 7 with a slightly faster processor, micro SD slot, but also a slightly lower pixel density per inch.
