It’s been over a year since LG introduced the LG G Pad 8.0, and it looks like the company has quietly upgraded it with the launch of LG G Pad 2 8.0. It looks similar to the previous generation G Pad 8.0, but comes with additional features.
Specifications wise, the LG G Pad 2 8.0 features a 8.0 1280 x 800 IPS LCD display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB via microSD slot. It has a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 4200mAh battery, and runs on Android 5.0 out of the box.
Interestingly, while there’s nothing to shout about in the specs, what makes the LG G Pad 2 8.0 stand out is its full-sized USB 2.0 port. The port can be used for the regular things like transferring of files, plugging in a keyboard/mouse, or even a PS4 controller.
Other features include MS Office (Excel, Word and Power Point), a slimmer stylus compared to previous generation (3.5mm tip vs. 8mm tip), and has all the usual LG features such as QuickMemo+, KnockON, and more.
The LG G Pad 2 8.0 is currently only available in South Korea, the company did not mention anything about international availability.
