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.

While the LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus hasn’t been officially announced yet, Android Police reports that details about the upcoming tablet were posted to a T-Mobile support page.

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 has 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.

  1. Those are some pretty tepid specs for 2017. Something tells me they won’t price it as low as they spec’d it.

    1. I’d buy it if were cheap (I need a cheap computer in the garage) but over $200 is a no-go for these specs.

    2. It’s not a popular thing to say around these parts, but I think Apple has killed the market for low-end Android tablets, and that market wasn’t that big to begin with. It’s not a big jump in price to the base iPad these days, and it has better specs, better build quality, and will be supported longer. You have to be on a pretty tight budget to forego that for one of these things. It’s incredibly disappointing, because I’d love to have a good Android tablet to compliment my phone but they’re consistently disappointing spec-wise at pretty much every price point.

      1. You’re so right. In the past I’ve had a couple of nice Android tablets (2013 Nexus 7 and a 10″ ASUS) but there are basically none now. Now I have an iPad mini 4 and an iPad Pro 10.5. Still have the 10″ ASUS for certain things though.
