LG G Pad 5 10.1 with 8200mAh Battery, Snapdragon 821 SoC Launched: Price, Features


LG has introduced a new mid-range tablet dubbed LG G Pad 5 10.1 tablet in Korea. The tablet comes with a big 8,200mAh battery and still has a pretty compact form factor.

A little while ago, the renders and the specifications of the device were leaked. Turns out that all of them were indeed legit.

LG G Pad 5 10.1: Full Specifications and Features

Starting things off with the display of the device, the LG G Pad 5 10.1, as the name suggests, sports a big 10.1-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display giving out a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees. There is a considerable amount of bezels wrapping up the display.

The tablet comes with a comfortable mode to reduce blue light and help the user avoid eye strain.

The device comes in only one color variant – Silver. The rear of the device is made up of metal and it gives an almost iPad Mini-like feel which is a good thing by all means. The LG logo sits at the lower end of the device’s rear while the rear camera is at the top left corner. The camera appears to be flush with the body, so it might be prone to scratches. The company has not mentioned as to whether or not there is any protection for the camera lens.

At the bottom of the tablet, we get the speaker grille and a USB Type-C charging port. At the top, we get a 3.5mm headphone jack (thankfully).

On the right side of the tablet, we can see the power button, the volume rocker, and the fingerprint scanner while on the left, there is a SIM tray. Yes, the LG G Pad 5 10.1 has SIM card support.

Moving on to the dimensions of the tablet, the LG G Pad 5 10.1 measures 247.2 x 150.7 x 8 (mm x mm x mm) and weighs in at 498g. Considering the fact that the tablet comes with a beefy 8,200mAh battery, the weight is kind of justified. To make things even better, there is Quick Charge 3.0 support to charge up the battery.

For biometrics, the LG G Pad 5 10.0 comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner which is ergonomically located.

Under the hood, the LG G Pad 5 10.1 is powered with a 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset which is coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of internal storage (UFS2.0) that has scope for further expansion with the help of an external SD card. It makes sense to increase the storage of the tablet as just 32GB of memory clearly won’t suffice. Thankfully enough, the G Pad 5 storage can be upgraded up to 512GB.

Coming to the cameras of the device, the LG G Pad 5 10.5 features a single 8MP primary camera at the back and a 5MP selfie snapper. Again, nothing too special going on in the camera department.

As far as the OS is concerned, the tablet comes with Android 9 Pie out of the box.

As of now, we are not sure as to when the tablet will be launched globally, but we are sure to receive further intel no the same in the coming days.
