The company hasn’t announced anything regarding availability outside its home country yet, but we do expect to see the tablet go on sale in a few markets worldwide within the next few months.
In term of specs, the LG G Pad III 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch IPS display with 1200 x 1920 WUXGA resolution, which gives a pixel density of 224 PPI. Inside is powered by an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, packed with only 2GB of RAM and32GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded up to 2TB via a microSD card slot.
At the back as well as the front of the tablet features with a 5MP camera for taking good photos and selfies. Other smart connectivity for the new LG G Pad III 10.1 include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, a USB Type-C port, and especially 4G LTE when this tablet supports a SIM slot. All features of the tablet will be powered by a 6000mAh battery, and although LG hasn’t revealed any numbers with regards to battery stamina, we could expect it would bring you an impressive usage time. The tablet measures at 256.2 x 167.9 x 6.7 – 7.9mm and weighs at 510 grams.

One of the highlight keys of the new tablet is its kickstand feature, when it can rotate up to 70 degrees, which allows users to comfortably use the tablet on a table for watching multimedia contents on a large IPS screen. As for the software, there is a minus and a little disappointed as the tablet just runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow when out of the box. However, we do expect that LG will update the Android 7.0 Nougat to the G Pad III 10.1 LTE in the near future.
