LG has officially announced the G Pad III 10.1 in Korea.
The LG G Pad III 10.1 features a 10-inch IPS screen with a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1200. While 1080p is more than enough for smartphones, it’s a different story on a tablet. But since this tablet is probably on the affordable side, it makes sense to not put a higher resolution and cut the corners on the inside.
LG G Pad III 10.1 also features LTE connectivity so that it can connect to the internet even if there’s no Wi-Fi available. Another highlight is the stylus support which means that it can be used by creative professionals. There’s also a kickstand built-in to the device and the hinge is adjustable for up to 70 degrees.
Back in May, LG also introduced a smaller variant called as the G Pad III 8.0. The 10.1’s hardware setup is not much different from the 8.0. The processor is an octa-core and it’s working with only 2GB of RAM. Since it’s significantly larger in size, it also has more battery inside, 6000mAh to be exact.

LG also equipped it with a Time Square’ UX which transforms the tablet into a calendar, digital photo frame, or desk clock.
