LG rumored to be developing 8.3-inch,1920x1200-resolution G Pad tablet

updated 08:10 am EDT, Wed August 14, 2013

Possible LG tablet launch could occur at IFA next month

LG could be developing a new Android tablet, according to a new rumor. The electronics producer is said to be working on the LG G Pad, a tablet with an 8.3-inch, 1920x1200-resolution display, and would in theory be the latest tablet-format device from the company since it introduced the 8.9-inch Optimus Pad in 2011.

Sources of state that it will have a quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. In terms of design, it is said to be "very thin and lightweight" with an aluminum backing, and will have a thin bezel which will help it fit into a back pocket, despite the screen size. Though it is said not to have a pen-based input, like the Samsung Galaxy Note series, it will apparently have an optional cellular network connection.

While LG has not let slip any hint of such a tablet, the potential G Pad name fits in with the change of branding in the Optimus line of devices, such as with the G2. It is suggested that LG will be showing off the device at the IFA trade show in Berlin early next month.
