LG is back on the tablet scene with its G Pad 5 10.1 which was launched in South Korea earlier today. As the name implies this is a 10.1-inch tablet that runs on Android and also packs a sizeable 8,200 mAh battery. It comes with two cameras, a metal back and LTE, GPS and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity.
The display itself a 10.1-inch IPS panel with FHD+ resolution. It comes with a 5MP selfie camera while the rear module ups the megapixel count to 8. The G Pad 5 10.1 comes in at 247.2 x 150.7 x 8mm and weighs 498 grams.
The bottom features dual speakers while the top houses the 3.5mm headphone jack. The right side houses the fingerprint reader alongside the volume and power buttons.
Interestingly enough, LG decided to go with the three year old Snapdragon 821 SoC paired with 4GB RAM and just 32GB storage. The storage is expandable via the microSD slot. On the software front, we have Android 9 Pie with LG’s custom UX on top. The battery in the G Pad 5 10.1 comes in at 8,200 mAh and supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.
Pricing starts at KRW 440,000 ($380) but there is no word on international availability at this point.
