It’s about time that LG updated its tablet range and right on cue, LG has announced that the LG G Pad II 10.1 is going to be announced at IFA 2015 – yes, it’s a bit weird to be announcing something that will be announced again later, but hey, whatever floats their boat. The LG G Pad II 10.1 is a relatively high-end affair which is running a Snapdragon 800 under the hood. While that’s relatively dated as far as processors go, it’s still a powerful chip which should make great use of the 1920×1200 10.1-inch display that LG has put on the LG G Pad II 10.1. The other notable feature of LG’s new tablet is the battery – a pretty sizeable 7,400mAh – which should keep most heavy tablet users happy. Here’s the full list of specifications that LG released earlier today:

  • Processor: 2.26GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragonâ„¢ 800 Processor
  • Display: 10.1-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200 / 224 ppi)
  • Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Memory: 16GB eMMC / 2GB RAM / microSD
  • Camera: Rear 5MP / Front 2MP
  • Battery: 7,400mAh Size: 254.3 x 161.1 x 7.8mm
  • Weight: 489g
  • Network: DL 42 Mbps / UL 5.76Mbps (3G)
  • Connectivity: LTE Cat. 4 CA / Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac / A-GPS / USB 2.0
  • Color: Brilliant Bronze
  • Other: Reader Mode / Dual Window / QuickMemo+

The key points of the LG G Pad II 10.1 that LG is emphasizing are its bezels – which LG says are the “slimmest bezel among similar-sized tablets currently on the market” – and Reader Mode, which dynamically turns down the blue colour in the backlight which they say makes for a more comfortable reading experience. Naturally, pricing and availability haven’t yet been made public so we’ll just have to wait till IFA 2015 for more information.
