LG G Pad 8.3 With Verizon LTE Bands Makes A Quick Pit Stop At The FCC
LG unwrapped its first high-end Android-powered flagship tablet, the G Pad 8.3 in the United States back in October, 2013, however, the South Korean company has never mentioned that an LTE-enabled variant would also be touching down in the States, too. A recent FCC filing shows that the upcoming G Pad variant, model number VK810 will support Verizon’s LTE and HSPA data services, therefore, confirming 4G capabilities are on the way.
The Federal Communications Commission official document reveals that the mid-range 8.3-inch slate will continue to be powered by a Qualcomm APQ8064 Pro Snapdragon 600 chipset with four 1.7GHz Krait 300 CPU’s onboard, 2GB of RAM, an Adreno 320 GPU, 16GB of internal flash memory (expandable up to 64GB via microSD), a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with optical image stabilization, a 1.3-megapixel 720p front-facing shooter and a beefy 4,600 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.
Sadly, the filing does not provide any clues with regards to a launch date, but we do expect the device to ship pretty soon. Verizon only has five days left in which to target a January release, and this recent FCC approval means that we could possibly be seeing the 4G-enabled LG G Pad 8.3 launch within the next couple of days.
