LG unveiled the LTE-capable version of the LG G Pad 8.0 tablet, this new version of LG G Pad promises “blazing fast outdoor connectivity and portability for on-the-go media consumption.” The LG official press release said this tablet “offers the right balance of performance and price competitiveness” and also brings the advanced user interface and camera features of the LG G3 flagship smartphone.
“With the G Pad 8.0 LTE, LG is setting a higher standard for connectivity in emerging 4G markets,” revealed Dr. Jong-seok Park, the president and current CEO of LG Electronics Mobile. “Today’s on-the-go consumers demand speed and convenience wherever they are, at any time. If a 4G LTE infrastructure is in place, we want LG products to be first to take advantage of the fast network.”
Other noteworthy features in the LG G Pad 8.0 LTE include:
- Touch & Shoot helps capture special moments quickly and intuitively by letting users tap anywhere on the G Pad display to focus and trigger the shutter in one single step, eliminating a time-consuming two-step process.
- Gesture Shot makes taking selfies simple and fun. Opening and closing one’s hand in front of the lens starts a three-second countdown before triggering the shutter for brilliant, blur-free selfies.
- Smart Keyboard makes typing on an 8-inch tablet display just as easy as typing on a smartphone. Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively “knowing” what words the user intended to type.
- Knock Code™, LG’s proprietary security feature that makes powering on and unlocking one fluid action, gives up to four users their own personal knock pattern so family members can share the LG G Pad without sharing their personal information.
