The South Korean Cellular Carrier (LG Uplus) introduced a brand new mid-range tablet, the LG U+ Pad 8. This tablet has a light body, and a simple design to provide a comfortable grip. As the image shows, it is available in white color variant.
To have a quick look on its specs, the tablet holds an 8-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 PX screen resolution, which implies a 19:10 aspect ratio and that is very effective for watching movies and playing games. It is packed with a bigger 4,000mAh battery, which is sufficient to retain power for almost 6 hours of usage.
In addition, LTE connectivity is also offered with 150 Mbps speed, along with a dual band Wi-Fi capability, that supports fast wireless internet speeds. It is constructed with a GPS receiver too, such that you can find your locations on the go. The FM radio is a strange, yet great addition, as most tabs doesn’t come with it, nowadays.
As for now, with these specs, this handset is pretty just right. But the saddest part is, the internals are not so spectacular. The LG U+ Pad 8 is powered by an Octa-Core CPU clocked at 1.3GHz, with a MediaTek MT8783 chipset.
Apart from that it is coupled with, only 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The camera is adorned with a 5 MP sensor at the rear and a 2MP one, for the front-facing camera.
As far as its availability is concerned, they have planned to sell it at 2000 stores across the nation. The price is expected to be around KRW 242,000, which comes pretty close to $210/€200. Moreover, the company have also planned to provide lots of free after sale services for the LG U+ Pad 8, which will be quite compelling for those who are planning to buy a new tab.
