In the new Google/Asus Nexus 7 we already have the bastion for Android tablets that will take on anything Apple comes up with. That said, now Greek website Techblog is reporting that LG is preparing to launch an 8.3-inch tablet that will take on the Nexus 7 and will be known as the G-Pad.
Reportedly, the tablet will have the same 1920×1200 resolution that we have seen in the Nexus 7, but on a larger 8.3-inch screen. It will also have 2GB of RAM, but there is no word on which processor it will be powered by. Nevertheless, it’s pretty safe to say at this time of the year we can expect a tablet with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 or Snapdragon 600 quad-core chipset at the least. Having said that, the Nexus 7 uses last year’s Qualcomm S4 Pro chipset, and that has not stopped it from being a power packed performer, but we think because the LG tablet will have a UI skin on top, a faster CPU will be needed so that it competes with the Nexus 7 in terms of usability.
The report also states that the product will have a super slim bezel that will make it pocketable.
