LG’s latest Android tablet features an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
The LG G Pad III 8.0 is now available in South Korea for under $300, and as MobileSyrup notes, a couple of Canadian wireless carriers are selling it for $240 CAD (about $180 US).
The tablet supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1, features a 4,800 mAh battery, and runs Android 6.0 software. It also has a feature that you don’t find on a lot of small Android tablets: a full-sized USB port which you can use to connect a flash drive, mouse, keyboard, or other accessories.
The Korean version seems to have 32GB of storage, while the version available in Canada has just 16GB. On the other hand, the Canadian version supports for LTE.
LG seems to be positioning the G Pad III 8.0 as both a tablet, and an eReader. It has a dedicated button for enabling a reading mode that reduces blue light from the screen, which is supposed to make it easier to read in bed without messing with your natural sleep patterns.
