On Monday, LG has launched new budget tablet in South Korea named LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE to its G Pad tablet portfolio. The new tablet has been exclusively launched in Korea and there is no indication whether it is going to be made available in other countries. It comes in Dark Brown color and is priced at 352,000 Korean Won ($307/Rs. 20,000 approx).
The main highlight of the LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE is its weight; LG says that the tablet weighs just 290 grams which is less than a conventional soda can.
Talking about specification, the LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and features an 8” full-HD (1920×1200 pixels) display. The tablet is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor clocked at 1.4GHz coupled with 505 GPU. It offers 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is further expandable up to 2TB via a microSD cad.
For photography, the LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE sports a 5MP primary camera along with a 5MP front-facing camera. Connectivity options include 4G LTE via a single SIM card slot, Bluetooth v4.2, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), Micro-USB, and GPS options along with Miracast support. It packs a 3000mAh battery which seems to be a compromising factor on the lightweight tablet.
Some of the features, the LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE comes loaded with are Easy-to-view mode, dual windows, knock on/ knock code, and the Plus Pack. LG is selling the Plus Pack at an additional cost of KRW 82,000 ($70/Rs. 4,500 approx), which is essentially a tablet case that can be used as a stand, and comes with external battery pack, speaker, and USB port.
