LG has recently announced a trio of new G Pad tablets without going into specifics. And by “specifics” we mean “specs.” In a vague press release, LG “forgot” to say anything about the processor used, building materials and so on.
Up until this point we’ve wondered whom LG is targeting with the G Pad series. Now we know – they’re going for the first-time tablet buyers who don’t need the latest bells and whistles.
One of the three tablets, G Pad 7.0, has been leaked by French website FrAndroid and from their post we get to learn some previously unknown details. This unit will come with a 7-inch 1280×800 pixels screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. In addition, there will be a pair of cameras, 3.2-megapixel one with NO flash on the back and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. All this will come packed in a plastic body that (as far as I’ve understood) feels kinda cheap compared to the earlier LG G Pad 8.3. Alas, this is a very different device that will compete with tablets from Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series, rather than Note and TAB Pro models.
The launch date is still unknown but we’re guessing all G Pad tablets will hit the stores all around the world in the next few weeks… or so. I can’t say we’re excited about that, though.
