Video: LG teases ‘G Pad 8.3’ tablet as purported image and specs leak

LG G Pad 8.3 Specs

LG already announced its new hero phone for the second half of 2013 when it unveiled the G2 in early August. The upcoming new flagship handset features cutting-edge specs and a unique design, though many wondered if it has any stand-out features that might draw attention away from market leaders like Samsung and Apple. That question will soon be answered as the G2 launch approaches, but now a new question emerges: can LG compete in the tablet space?

The vendor’s last Android tablet didn’t get much traction, however LG is now teasing a new G Pad 8.3 slate that will likely be unveiled next week at the IFA conference in Berlin, Germany. While the company’s teaser video tries to pose a number of questions that leave the viewer hanging, most of them may already have answers as a recent leak has seemingly revealed the device’s specs as well as an image of the tablet.

Korean-language Move Player last week published a supposed image of LG’s new G Pad 8.3 alongside specs that, if accurate, reveal what appears to be a decent mid-size tablet offering. According to the report, specs include a Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, optional 4G LTE, Android Jelly Bean and an 8.3-inch display with better-than-full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels.

The report notes that a Wi-Fi-only version will debut at IFA and an LTE-compatible model will follow sometime in October.

The leaked image follows below along with LG’s teaser video.
