LG G Pad 7, 8, 10.1

LG’s new tablet series is meant to fill in the gap between cheap and premium tablets. The LG G Pad 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 aim to find a spot in the mid-tier market with capable components and variable sizes. Not to mention, very accessible prices.

We heard very little about the new LG G Pad series since its May 12th announcement, but today we are finally getting some details on the tablets’ release dates. LG plans to roll out the smallest of the G Pad trio this week, with the 8-inch and 10.1-inch versions launching within the next few weeks.

Most specs in these three tablets are identical, with differences only to be found in battery capacity, internal storage, cameras and, of course… screen size. Hell, even the screen resolution is the same across the spectrum! Let’s take a look at the specs.

LG G Pad specs

  • 7-inch / 8-inch / 10.1-inch IPS 1280×800 display
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 GB / 16 GB / 16 GB of internal storage
  • 3 MP / 5 MP / 5 MP rear-facing camera, 1.3 MP front-facing camera

Of course, you also get all the awesome tricks LG has to offer with its unique software. Features like Knock On, Knock Code, Dual Window, Q Slide and the others will be on board. These tablets will be as full-featured as possible, and performance should be more than fair for most use cases.

LG’s new tablets should make for great gadgets for casual or money conscious users. They are expected to come at affordable price points, though we still don’t know jsut how much cash LG is asking for. We will definitely hear more about that this week, when the LG G Pad 7.0 is released in Europe. Also unknown is the USA release, but we expect to learn more about that soon, as well.

    This could work if they have Moto like prices.

      They won’t

        You sure? by the looks of the specs it looks like it might. Everything is at this point considered high end cheap crap. For lack of a better word anyway.

          I feel like lg will overprice it ever so slightly, and then some time after launch the price will drop to become a real bargain. The g2 was a true flagship, and after somewhat lackluster sales, the prices dropped like crazy in some cases even undercutting the nexus 5. Most of lg’s midrange phones tend to me a tad overpriced and I feel like initially these will be as well. I love what lg is doing though and maybe(hopefully), I’m wrong and these will be priced accordingly at launch.

    The specs are really not that impressive. The Nexus 7 2013 is far better, and the upcoming Nexus 8 will likely be better and cheaper.
    My first thought when I saw the pictures:

    Soooo…LG copied and pasted the Tab 4 series into its own production…
