LG has just introduced its follow up to its G Pad tablet. The South Korean mobile manufacturer will be highlighting the G Pad II tablet during the upcoming IFA conference this year to be held in Berlin, Germany in September, which means that on top of today’s unveiling, LG fans will be able to see the new tablet in the flesh next month.
LG’s new G Pad II comes in at 10.1 inches, and features a ridiculous 7,400 mAh battery. Needless to say, that is one big battery. It just might be the biggest yet in terms of capacity among all tablets currently out in the market. Performance wise, this huge battery will certainly allow users to take full advantage of the tablet’s 1,920 by 1,200 WUXGA display screen. Those familiar with the original G Pad tablet may notice that the G Pad II’s display screen is a definite upgrade on its predecessor’s.
With regards to other hardware specifications, the LG’s G Pad II packs a 2.2 GigaHertz four core Snapdragon 800 processor (manufactured by Qualcomm), which is supported with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 16 gigabytes of internal storage (expandable via a micro SD card slot). Camera wise, the tablet comes with a 5 megapixel camera on the rear side and a 2 megapixel camera on the front side. The device runs on the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop mobile operating system, and comes with a number of freebies from Microsoft, namely Office (for the Android platform), plus a couple of years of 100 gigabytes OneDrive storage.
For now, LG is deciding not divulge any pricing information yet for the G Pad II. Many are expecting though that the South Korean company will announcing the tablet’s price when it shows off the device during the upcoming IFA conference.
Some may be wondering though -- why announce the tablet now instead of officially unveiling it at the 2015 IFA conference? Well, the IFA conference is one of the largest and most popular trade shows for electronic gadgets in the whole world, which means that the event will be packed with competition. Tech giants like Samsung, Huawei, and other high profile companies will surely be announcing new products during the trade show. All of them will be competing for attention. As for LG, by introducing its new tablet offering in advance, it might have just provided a teaser of sorts so that those interested in its new tablet can look forward to learning more about the product during the IFA conference.
But LG better be prepared -- Apple may be scheduling its own event in early September too, and the iPhone maker could be introducing a new iPad tablet. That could spell trouble for the G Pad II.
