It looks like LG has a new tablet on the way, and it has a big name, mediocre specs, and one unusual feature: an optional dock that adds ports, an extra battery, and a kickstand, among other things.
The tablet features an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, an unspecified 1.4 GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 5MP front and rear cameras, and Android 7.0 software. There’s a microSD card rader with support for up to 2TB of removable storage, and the tablet supports 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network.
The most interesting/unusual thing about the tablet is the docking accessory which is shown in pictures on the website, but not described in any of the support documentation.
Fortunately, a leak from earlier this year helps fill in the blanks: it’s expected to be called the GPad Plus Pack and it ha a 4,400 mAh battery, stereo speakers, and it seems to have at least one full-sized USB port, a micro USB port, a power button, and a proprietary connector for attaching to the back of the tablet.
