Last year, LG unveiled its G Pad tablets in 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants. While there is no word on an official launch, the 8-inch variant of the tablet is now available on Indian e-commerce sites. The G Pad 8.0 is priced at Rs 17,999.As far as specifications are concerned, G Pad 8.0 flaunts an 8-inch True IPS HD (1280×800 pixels) display, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Storage comes in the form of 16GB onboard storage, which can be further expanded using a microSD card.
The tablet also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel secondary camera, and a 4,400mAh battery pack. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and is bundled with QPair 2.0 technology. This essentially allows users to connect the tablet to other Android devices via Bluetooth in order to receive notifications of calls and messages to the G Pad and respond directly on the tablet.
The LG G Pad 8.0 is a well packaged mid-range tablet that is styled well. It will be up against the likes of the Asus Fonepad 8 and Lenovo A8-50 among others.
