LG Electronics unveils LTE version of G Pad 8.0

Korean devices vendor LG Electronics on Thursday unveiled the LTE version of G Pad 8.0 tablet.

The company said the launch is aimed at strengthening its presence in the 4G LTE market. In the recent quarter, LG said its 4G presence assisted the company to gain revenue in smartphone business.

The company did not share the price of the latest tablet.

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

Some of the other features of the LG G Pad 8.0 LTE are consumer friendly. But you can most of these features in other LG devices as well.

LG said the Touch & Shoot feature assists users to capture special moments 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.

Gesture Shot feature assists users for taking selfies without troubles. Opening and closing one’s hand in front of the lens starts a three-second countdown before triggering the shutter for blur-free selfies.

Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively knowing what words the user intended to type.

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