LG Unveil 8200mAh Tablet After 2 Year Hiatus

LG has unveiled its first tablet in years revealing the US$380 G Pad 5 10.1 for exclusive release in South Korea.

While there is no availability outside of South Korea, the move by LG to produce a new tablet is a strange one since the company has not produced one since 2017 with the G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE.

In fact, the LG Australia website features zero tablets despite having a section on their website dedicated to LG’s tablets which supposedly ‘feature HD display and a powerful processor’.

The 10.1-inch full HD tablet will run Android 9 Pie, with LG’s custom UX skin on top, and boasts a massive 8200mAh battery supported by USB-C Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.

Backed by an LG IPS panel, the screen boasts a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees.

Strangely LG has opted for the three-year-old Snapdragon 821 SoC with 4GB of RAM and a measly 32GB of storage.

Fortunately, storage is expandable via the included microSD slot.

The device features a fingerprint scanner on the side of the device, as well as some neat accessibility features like a blue light filter for reduced eye strain.

While the latest tablet from LG is by no means impressive, other than that massive battery capacity, it does indicate a return from the South Korean multinational electronics company to tablet production especially as tablet shipments continue their healthy growth, as covered by ChannelNews earlier this week, although a drop has been predicted in Q4 despite the upcoming holiday period.
