LG is gearing up to release the successor of the well-received G Pad tablet as the LG G Pad 2. The credible tipster Leaksfly has published the full configuration details of the new G Pad 2 via his Weibo account, which was later picked up by Mobi Picker.
The current-generation LG G Pad comes with a solid 8.3-inch display, as LG is not changing the display size of the successor LG G Pad 2. But the screen resolution will be 1,080 x 1,920 pixels, while the predecessor comes with 1,200 x 1,920 pixels.
The tablet will come powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) processor. The graphics will be taken care by Adreno 420 GPU and will be backed by a 3 GB of RAM unit. The original LG G Pad is powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon Pro 600) SoC and Adreno 320 for graphics. The amped-up RAM configuration is a plus since the predecessor comes with only a modest 2 GB unit.
For memory, the LG G Pad 2 will come equipped with 32 GB of in-built storage capacity, whereas the original G Pad comes with only 16 GB storage. In any case, both the slates support expandable storage options. Furthermore, the device will feature an 8 MP rear-facing camera unit, in addition to a gracious 5 MP front-facing snapper for selfies and live video chats. Meanwhile, the predecessor sports a paltry 5 MP main camera and a 1.3 MP shooter for selfies.
The slate will run on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, straight out of the box. Even though the G Pad runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, there is a planned upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Phone Arena says the tablet will be unveiled in October; the predecessor LG G Pad got released on Oct. 7, 2013. The company has not confirmed the LG G Pad 2 specifications thus far, however.
