LG, the South Korean multinational electronics company seems to be on an innovation spree. After revealing two 4K HDR monitors in the past few days, the recent buzz is that the company will be developing out-foldable displays for smartphones in the days to come.
As for the present, LG has announced the launch of 'G Pad Ⅲ 10.1 FHD LTE', a new Android tablet with LTE communication and enhanced screen learning functionalities. The G Pad Ⅲ is the successor of last year's G Pad II 10.1. The new tablet doesn't come with many significant changes though.
The 'G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE' is equipped with a 10.1-inch Full HD (1,920 × 1,200) IPS display that allows text and images to be viewed with a full HD screen. The new tablet is powered by a 1.5GHz Octa-Core processor, runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), and has a 5-megapixel rear and front-facing cameras.
In addition, this product features a folding 'Kick Stand', which can be adjusted up to 70 degrees. This feature can conveniently hold the 10.1-inch screen device as it can be mounted without any accessories. Interestingly, the tablet is also the first LG tablet in the 'G Pad' series to feature a kickstand.
The device is priced at KRW 429,000 (approximately Rs 24,535). However, the company has so far not given any details about the tablet's availability in India.
LG has also mentioned that the tablet comes various modes. The tablet has a 'Reader Mode', which makes it easy for users to use it for long hours without causing eye strain. There is also a 'Monitor mode' that shows the screen of the smartphone as it is on the tablet. Furthermore, 'Microsoft Office Package' for the tablet is also provided.
Commentating on the launch, Lee Sang-gyu, Managing Director of LG Electronics Korea Sales Division said that the G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE is a tablet that provides optimal convenience by supporting the existing 'G Pad Ⅲ 8.0' with the strength of LTE communication. Going forward, LG will expand the use of G-Pad to further enhance its competitiveness in the tablet market.
As such, LG Electronics will be launching 'G Pad Ⅲ 10.1' with a stylus pen in addition to this product early next year and expand the 'G Pad Ⅲ' lineup. As per the words of Mr. Lee, LG will actively respond to changes in the tablet market environment through collaboration with the educational contents industry.
