The South Korean tech major LG Electronics has set its foot strong into the tablet market this year with the launch of LG G Pad range. This morning the company launched the new Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3 flavoured by Android 4.4 KitKat.
Relatively, today at the LG G Flex launch event in India, Steve Koh, Head - Mobile Communication at LG India informed GizBot that LG is planning to announce a new tablet early next year.
Apparently, the high-profile senior executive revealed that LG has plans to announce a 10-inch Full HD tablet at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 to be held in Barcelona in February.
The purported 10-inch FHD tablet would be the legitimate successor to the original G Pad 8.3. The official told, "while the LG G Pad 8.3 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, the upcoming 10-inch tablet would incorporate a quad-core processor powered by Snapdragon 800 SoC."
Most likely, the tablet would feature 2GB of RAM, latest version of Android, cellular connection and it would later hit the shelves in India in 2014 itself.
Other details around the tablet have been kept under wraps. Aside from the upcoming 10-inch FHD tablet when asked about the LG G Pad 8.3 release in India, the company's official confirmed that since the G Pad 8.3 does not feature built-in cellular connection, it would be tough to launch the device for the Indian consumers without 3G connectivity.
So basically, the India launch of LG G Pad 8.3 is still not decided yet.
LG is reasonably a new player in the tablet business and the company's attempt at making a tablet device has been well received by the mainstream media.
LG G Pad 8.3 is also being made available with the stock Android experience. Unfortunately, the G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is limited to US consumers for right now.
