LG announces LTE G Pad 8.0


Shipping in key European countries starting this week followed by markets in Central and South America, Asia and more

LG has unveiled an LTE version of the G Pad 8.0, offering fast outdoor connectivity and portability for on-the-go media consumption. The LG G Pad 8.0 LTE comes preloaded with the best of the LG G3 smartphone's premium user experience (UX), delivering smooth multitasking capabilities and an immersive multimedia experience.

The LG G Pad 8.0 LTE includes a unique sync feature that delivers easy connectivity with other Android devices. With QPair 2.0, users can connect to their smartphones with Bluetooth to conveniently answer phone calls, receive notifications, and send text messages, directly from their LG tablet.

The device also includes Touch & Shoot, which helps capture special moments quickly and intuitively by letting users tap anywhere on the G Pad display to focus and trigger the shutter in one single step, eliminating a time consuming two-step process.

It includes Gesture Shot, that makes taking selfies simple and fun. Opening and closing one's hand in front of the lens starts a three second countdown before triggering the shutter for brilliant, blur-free selfies.

Smart Keyboard makes typing on an eight inch tablet display just as easy as typing on a smartphone. Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75% by tracking and analysing typing habits and intuitively knowing what words the user intended to type.

Also, Knock Code, LG's proprietary security feature that makes powering on and unlocking one fluid action, gives up to four users their own personal knock pattern so family members can share the LG G Pad without sharing their personal information.

'With the G Pad 8.0 LTE, LG is setting a higher standard for connectivity in emerging 4G markets,' said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO at LG. 'Today's on-the-go consumers demand speed and convenience wherever they are, at any time. If a 4G LTE infrastructure is in place, we want LG products to be first to take advantage of the fast network.'

The G Pad 8.0 LTE will begin shipping in key European countries starting this week followed by markets in Central and South America, Asia and CIS in the weeks to follow.
