With the CES trade show coming up in Las Vegas in early January, LG have made two pre-show announcements on LG tablets. The first one was for the LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE that was announced in South Korea yesterday, the other one is for a stylus version of the same tablet that LG says will be launched in early 2017.
I studied the specs and the design of the LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE, and I personally can’t see one bit of difference bewteen this tablet and the October launched LG G Pad X II 10.1 LTE. If this is the case, and it appears to be just that, then once again I think it’s just LG trying to get its ducks in a row as far as tablet branding and naming goes.
The naming is uninteresting to me, but the tablet itself, the LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE or LG G Pad X II 10.1 LTE has actually been a popular 10.1-inch Android 6.0 tablet ever since it was released. This is an unlocked 4G Android 6.0 tablet.
It’s powered by an octa-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a future proof 2TB of microSD card support.
The 10.1-inch screen has a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display, full Wi-Fi cover, Bluetooth 4.2, 5MP front and rear cameras, a full-size USB Type-C port, Microsoft Office for Android, and a lot of LG apps for tablets/smartphone mobile use enhancements, as well as a built-in kickstand.
This tablet is 7.9 mm thick and weighs 510 grams.
LG says it will announce the stylus version of this tablet in early 2017. This could be the LG X760 version we wrote about some weeks ago.
