The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is now officially official and it has become available for purchase on Google’s Play Store. The LG G Pad Google Play Edition price has been set to $349. The G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition announcement came only a few hours after it was discovered that LG V510 isn’t the rumored Nexus 8 tablet, but the Nexus-experience variant of the LG G Pad 8.3 tablet introduced by the Korean company in September.
As you probably expected, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Edition is running a stock version of Android 4.4 KitKat, lacking the interface and the software customizations included by LG on the standard model. Of course, since we’re talking about a Google Play Edition device, the G Pad 8.3 GPE will be among the first terminals to receive new Android updates.
In terms of technical specifications, the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is identical to the standard model, sporting an 8.3-inch Full HD IPS WUXGA with 1920 x 1200 resolution and 273 ppi pixel density, Snapdragon 600 chipset with quad-core 1.7 Krait 300 CPU and Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage, microSD slot (up to 64 GB supported), primary 5 MP camera, and front-facing 1.3 MP camera.
The tablet also comes with 4,600 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, and DLNA. Just like the standard model, G Pad 8.3 GPE measures 216.8 x 126.5 x 8.3mm and has a weight of 338 grams.
It is available in Indigo Black and, for the time being, it’s unknown whether the LG G Pad 8.3 GPE will sell outside the US Play Store.
