LG G Pad LG-V500 FCC

After receiving Bluetooth SIG certification not so long ago, the LG-V500 tablet has now been spotted at the FCC, being a prime candidate for LG’s rumored 8.3-inch G Pad tablet.

The FCC documentation clearly reveals that we’re looking at a tablet – when looking at the Bluetooth SIG certification docs it was speculated that the LG-V500 would be a tablet rather than a smartphone – although it doesn’t mention the product’s commercial name. Considering exiting rumors, it makes sense to assume the LG-V500 is the LG G Pad while we wait for official confirmation.

However, the FCC doesn’t mention many details about the device – as in most cases with such filings, the maker of the device has filed a confidentiality request with the regulator.

From the available files (see Source link below), we can only confirm that the LG-V500 will have dual-band Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n), and we already know it will pack Bluetooth capabilities.

In fact, it looks like this is the Wi-Fi version of the tablet – it’s not clear what LG’s plans for the device are, but a cellular model could also be around the corner, considering that the Bluetooth SIG also listed an LG-V507L (L as in LTE?) model that seems to be part of the same LG-V500 family.

Recent reports say that LG will likely unveil the G Pad at IFA 2013 next month. The device is said to sport an 8.3-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM.

Are you looking forward to buy an LG tablet, considering the progress LG has made when it comes to making Android devices?

    I want lg g2 and lg g pad
    But just worried about they support for future android update :'(

      if you want the g2 but worry about updates just wait for the nexus 5. itll most likely be based on g2 or a similar speced phone with the nexus updates :D. the g pad on the other hand, the nexus 7 is virtually the same minus the processor and size.

      • Balraj

        New nexus 7 has a few defects and new nexus 5 could be made by Motorola..which will not debut in India..
        So I’m waiting for g2 reviews :-)

    I would love this tablet.

    Excited about this. The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is OK, but the specs aren’t exactly future proof and with the retina iPad Mini coming this year, there should be a high-spec Android equivalent within the same price range.

      How about the Nexus 7?

  • Mikestroh

    I truly hope this has speakers located in the Front instead of the sides as well as thin bezels on the side. Also I hope its made from high quality materials. Looking forward to LG’s and HP 8″ premium tablet premieres at IFA and whatever else is shown and exciting.

    When a company wants to keep a secret, the FCC is there to help us foil it ;)
