if you love what LG mobile has offered to you up to this point, you might be looking forward to a slate from this other Korean electronics juggernaut. it has been a long hiatus since we last seen a slate from LG and here it is, the much rumored (well, may be not so much), much leaked LG Android tablet is finally been announced ahead of its official debut at the 2013 IFA. the LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet (we were surprised that it is not an Optimus Tab, though), as it is called, sports the first Full HD display on an 8-inch class tablet, boasting a screen resolution of 1,920 by 1,200. it is naturally, multitouch. judging from the official product image, the device appears to be rather sleek – something which shouldn’t come as a surprise, though. in any case, design details are non-existence for now, but from we can tell, it looks like it is sporting a brushed aluminum mid-back (who knows, it could be plastic?), while the rest of the device has curved edges and corners. we also noted that there appeared to have two speakers located on the back, in landscape position. so it safe to say, stereo sound is in the order.

powering the device is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip, clocking in at 1.7GHz. some features include an 16GB internal storage (no mention of expandable storage, so we are assuming ‘no’ for now), a 5MP main shooter, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 4,600 mAh battery. with this tablet, LG is attempting to converge your devices by offering feature like QPair which ‘directs’ calls and messages received on your smartphone to the G Pad. in this way, you will be in the know of the incomings on your smartphone while using the tablet without having to pull out your phone from your bag or pocket. honestly, we can’t see the real benefit, but i guess it is those things that are good to have. on the flip side, this could be an annoyance when one notification results in two alerts. another features that we thought might be real handy is QMemo. what QMemo does is allows seamless sharing of saved memos on your smartphone and other devices with the G Pad, so you can pick up from where you left off with any of your devices.

the LG G Pad 8.3 Tablet will be running on Android 4.2.2 at launch, which will begin globally in the fourth quarter of 2013. as for the price, it will be advised at launch time. details are pretty limited at this point, but more should be divulged when IFA officially throw the door open.
