Years after the boom in the tablet market, LG has finally got courage to enter with full force. Earlier, LG had only a single tablet in the market in the form of LG G Pad 8.3 along with its Google Play Edition in the Play Store. LG has now added 3 new devices to its G Pad line up of Android tablets; G Pad 7.0, G Pad 8.0 and G Pad 10.1.
The details about their hardware specifications and pricing aren’t available as of now. LG is supposed to reveal the details in the coming weeks. From the looks of it, they resemble closely to the design language of LG Nexus 5. The UI seems to be flatter now and it might include the newer version of LG’s own interface which was leaked recently in the screenshots which supposedly came from the upcoming LG G3 smartphone.
Apart from the new UI, all these tablets also come with software features like Q Pair 2.0 and Knock Code. Q Pair 2.0 which was introduced with the LG G Pad 8.3 allows pairing the tablet with Android smartphones via Bluetooth to sync notifications for calls and messages and respond directly on the tablet. Knock Code allows users to set any one of 80,000 different possible combinations for unlocking the device using ‘knock patterns’.
If these tablets come with good specifications and if LG can price them competitively, they can attract a good amount of traction as the offerings from Samsung aren’t worth buying due to their unimpressive hardware. Would you buy a tablet from LG?
