Talk of LG lately has been all about the recently announced G2 smartphone, however it looks like a new leak has brought another topic. It seems that LG has a tablet in the works. And slightly more intriguing, this tablet is expected to feature an 8.3-inch display and get an official unveiling during IFA in early September.
The details have been revealed by the Greek language Techblog who are reporting that due to a small bezel the tablet will be able to fit in a back pocket — despite it having an 8.3-inch display. Further talk of the display points towards a Full HD Plus resolution of 1920 x 1200. Other specs that have been revealed include a quad-core processor that will be paired with 2GB of RAM.
We have yet to see any specifics on the processor, however given the LG G2 was recently announced with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 — it seems likely the same could appear in this tablet. There was also talk of the tablet being “very thin and lightweight” but obviously, without specific numbers for the measurement and weight we are going to have to wait and see how that plays out. Sticking with the talk of the tablet being light, it is said to be made of aluminum.
The good news here, assuming that IFA announcement holds true it means we aren’t going to have to wait all that long for confirmation. Otherwise, similar to what we have recently seen from ASUS with the FonePad, the LG G Pad is expected to have support for voice calling. That bit by itself likely hints towards the tablet not coming available for those in the US. Though, with that in mind, there could be a variant with voice support and a second without voice support.
IFA 2013 takes place in Berlin and kicks off in early-September and Android Community will have plenty of coverage coming as a result of the event.
