I discovered an upcoming new LG G Pad III 10.1 today at FCC which has yet to be announced by LG. From before there are both a HD and a Full HD version of the 10-inch G Pad series, and it remains to be seen if the third generation will feature a HD or a Full HD display.
(UPDATED: LG G Pad X II 10.1 LTE was released in October 2016)
The LG G Pad III 10.1 carries model number variations of UK750 which makes it seem closer to the FHD version LG G Pad 10.1 than the HD version LG G Pad II 10.1.
The HD version was launched in July 2014 and is in need of an upgrade. It has not been updated further than to Android 5.0, so that’s probably one reason for a new launch by now. The specs and features were okay for a entry level 10-inch Android tablet 2 years ago, but not according to today’s standards.
The Full HD version has held up a little better. It was launched in August last year with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 7400 mAh battery, but is still stuck with Android 5.1. So compared to the new octa-core Full HD Android 6.0 tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, LG has some catching up to do.
The main specs of the LG G Pad 10.1 III have been left out from today’s FCC documents, but so far we know that it has dual-band a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, and 4G LTE support.
The LG G Pad 10.1 III (LG-UK750) device tested for FCC approval is listed as a pre-production tablet, so it may take a few months before we see either LG or one of the wireless carriers unveil this tablet.
