Not long ago, it was reported that the LG G Pad 8.3 will debut at Verizon. The information came from @evleaks, the well-connected leaker that has an almost flawless record when it comes to reporting about unannounced devices. Some new evidence comes to back up the Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 rumors.
A new device labelled LG-VK810 has been spotted in an official FCC filling. The respective device has the same dimensions as the LG G Pad and it packs support for LTE bands 4 and 13. How is that confirming it’s the Verizon LG G Pad 8.3? Well, the aforementioned bands are currently in use by Verizon.
Even though the aforementioned FCC filling doesn’t name the device by the name of LG G Pad 8.3 LTE, we are more than sure that we are looking at the LTE-friendly variant of the 8.3-inch LG tablet. Of course, aside from Verizon LTE bands support, expect the LG-VK810 to have the same hardware platform as the standard model.
In case you don’t know it already, hear that the LG G Pad 8.3 is underpinned by a Snapdragon 800 chipset based on a four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 5 MP primary camera, 1.3 user-facing camera, 16 GB of microSD-expandable storage, 4,600 mAh, and an impressive 8.3-inch IPS LCD display with 1200 x 1920 resolution.
The tablet is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, but you shouldn’t expect a firmware update for the Verizon anytime soon. In fact we’re talking about Verizon here.
For what it’s worth the LG G Pad has received a Google Play Edition in December last year, which came pre-loaded with stock Android 4.4 KitKat, just like one of its main competitors, the Nexus 7 2013.
