After a long gap, LG has launched a new G Pad-series Android tablet named LG G Pad 5. It is a direct successor to the LG G Pad 4 released in 2017. The new tablet first emerged in a report about two months ago and has finally been made official in South Korea.
The LG G Pad 5 is a 10.1-inch Android tablet with Full HD+ (1920 x 1200 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, it has Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 which is an older generation flagship processor. There is 4GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage as the only configuration option available for buyers. One can increase the storage capacity by using a microSD card up to 512GB.
It has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. One should not have high expectations from tablet cameras but they could be decent enough for in bright daylight. The whole package is powered by an 8,200mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. It will be running Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and has a fingerprint scanner on the back. Other notable features include stereo speakers, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB Type-C port.
The LG G Pad 5 has been priced at KRW 440,000 i.e. about $381. It is currently available only in South Korea with no words on the international expansion yet
