After launching the G Pad in 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants last year, LG today announced the successor to the 10.1-inch variant, called LG G Pad II 10.1. The tablet will be showcased at IFA in Berlin next month, and will soon go on sale in ‘key markets’ in North America, Europe and Asia starting from next month.
The tablet boasts a slim 7.8mm thin profile, and LG says the tablet’s bezels are the slimmest among any 10-inch tablets currently on sale. It features dimensions of 254.3×161.1mm, and weighs only 489 grams.
LG G Pad II 10.1 specifications: The tablet flaunts a 10.1-inch WUXGA (1920×1200 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Also on offer is 16GB internal memory, which can be expanded using a microSD card. It also comes with 100GB of free storage on Microsoft’s OneDrive.
The tablet also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 7,400mAh battery. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 4G LTE support, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS.
On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box. LG has pre-loaded Microsoft Office with the tablet, as well as software features like multi-window mode and ‘reader mode’, which essentially decreases the blue light of the screen.
“The LG G Pad II 10.1 was developed in response to consumers’ feedback and optimized for multimedia consumption,” Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company said. “Customers asked for a large display, bigger battery and faster performance all without raising the price. The G Pad II delivers on all counts.”
