The G Pad II is a minor upgrade over the original G Pad.
LG has quietly listed the G Pad II on its Korean website, continuing its young lineup of budget tablets with another run-of-the-mill device. Featuring an 8.0-inch screen, the G Pad II comes with a Snapdragon 400 processor like the original, but upgrades the RAM to 1.5 GB and offers Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box like all of LG’s recent smartphones.
The tablet has a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a setup that is all too familiar on low-cost tablets. Impressively, the G Pad II comes with 32GB of internal storage and also supports microSD expansion up to 128 GB, so media consumption fans should be all too happy should they consider buying the device. There’s a 4,200 mAh battery under the hood, and the tablet seems to also support stylus input.
The G Pad II hasn’t been officially mentioned by LG yet, nor is there any information available on whether it will launch in markets outside South Korea. It also remains to be seen if there will be variants with differing screen sizes like the original G Pad, and how much LG will decide to sell the 8.0-inch variant for whenever it goes on sale.
