The LG G Pad 8.3 may be headed for Verizon. According to several FCC filings, it seems the device will be getting some connectivity, utilizing the various LTE bands supported for Verizon devices. Though not mentioned by name, the satellite details seem to point right at the G Pad.

 A device going by the model name VK810 was listed as an LG model with the FCC. Then we have the dimensions, which are an exacting fit to the G Pad 8.3. The bands are also spot on for those Verizon uses, giving the G Pad for Verizon an LTE edge over others it competes with.

The device will also have WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth LE, and GPS. No hardware specs outside of what’s been noted here were revealed, but the dimensions alone seem to point us in the right direction. The current model sports a Snapdragon 600 processor, which keeps us just fine. The addition of LTE would make the G Pad quite a bit more attractive.

Though we found fault with the sound reproduction and some scrolling niggles in our review of the G Pad GPE, we liked it outside of those problems. The screen size is really pleasant, and the light profile made it easily handy for all-day use. If you’re looking for a tablet that is bigger than a Nexus 7, but still much more portable than a 10-inch design, the G Pad is one to check out. If you like connected tablets, give it some time and see if this one pops up on Verizon’s stellar network.
