• Adding another device to feature the pure Android experiences, LG has announced the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition. Earlier, we saw the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones coming with this edition. This is first time that a tablet is going to have a Google Play based layer and LG will be minimalizing its own UI and software to make room for the different version of Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. The new edition of LG G-Pad 8.3 will be on sale starting Tuesday at a price tag of $349. The tech specs of this device are similar to that of the LG G Pad 8.3, which went on LG G Pad 8.3 Specs & Price Revealed At Launch - The Display Features 1920 x 1200 Resolution.

    The G Pad 8.3 is released with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a customized user interface with its Optimus UI software. With apps from Google, including Google Play, Gmail and YouTube, it has access to LG apps such as QPair, QSlide, KnockOn, and Slide Aside. It also features a 1.3 MP front camera without flash and 5.0 MP AF rear-facing camera. "LG's working relationship with Google has always been strong and our collaboration on the first-ever Google Play Edition tablet is proof of that commitment," Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, said in a LG Announces First-Ever Google Play Edition Tablet. "The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition is a device with hardware and software that has been optimized for a truly consumer-friendly experience. There's nothing else like it out there in the marketplace."


    On the The LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition specifications chart, we find the similar 8.3" Full HD Display at 1920 x 1200 and .273 PPI. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad Core, 1.7 GHz processor, the tablet bundles 16 GB internal storage and 2 GB RAM. A 4,600 mAh Lithium polymer runs the device and it offers connectivity via Micro USB, 3.5mm headphone jack, 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 & 5 GHz) and Bluetooth 4.0. Cameras are the same on front and rear.

    With this edition, LG and Google offer the user the ability to hide the system UI such as the status bar and navigation bar. According to LG, this feature is ideal for rich visual content such as photos, videos, maps, books and games. We still don't have release date for this G Pad, but we can soon expect an official announcement for that as the device is up on the Google Play Store website.
