LG G Pad II 10.1 features a Snapdragon 800 processor and a massive battery


LG today announced that it will be unveiling “the most advanced model of its G Pad tablet,” the G Pad II 10.1, at IFA in Berlin next month. As its name suggests, the tablet will come with a 10.1-inch screen with a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution.

Other specs of the tablet include a Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.26GHz (yes, Snapdragon 800), 2GB RAM, 16GB storage space, microSD card slot, W-Fi, LTE Cat.4, and more. There is also a 5MP shooter at the rear and a 2MP shooter at the front of the tablet. The 7.8mm thin tablet features a 7,400mAh battery, which LG claims is the largest in its class.

“The LG G Pad II 10.1 was developed in response to consumers’ feedback and optimized for multimedia consumption.” said Chris Yie, vice president and head of marketing communications for LG Mobile Communications Company. “Customers asked for a large display, bigger battery and faster performance all without raising the price. The G Pad II delivers on all counts.”

On the software front, the G Pad II will be running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. It will also come with software features like Reader Mode, Dual Window, and QuickMemo+. While the latter two features are a commonplace in most LG devices, the first feature — Reader mode — is new on the G Pad II. With this mode enabled, the blue light emitted from the screen is reduced to make reading ebooks easier.

LG will be showcasing the G Pad II 10.1 at the IFA floor in Berlin next month. It will be launching the LTE and Wi-Fi variants of the tablet in key markets, including North America, Europe and Asia later this year.
