LG G Pad X 8.0 news: T-Mobile to sell 8-inch G Pad X


Mobile carrier T-Mobile will be offering the new LG Pad X tablet device, in a display size that is slightly smaller than what other carriers offered before. However, the device will also have a set of specifications that is on a higher level than the ones that came before it, at least on some aspects.

According to a report by Venture Beat, T-Mobile is joining other carriers in offering the new LG Pad X. Previously, AT&T and Verizon offered the device for grabs. AT&T had the device with a 10-inch display, while Verizon had the device at an 8.3-inch display. The one that T-Mobile would be offering comes with a spec that is close to the one that Verizon had, only with some changes.

The LG G Pad X 8.0 tablet that will be sold by T-Mobile will, as it name suggests, sports an 8-inch display. It will run under a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset with an octa-core CPU clocking in at a speed of 1.5 GHz. To compare with the LG G Pad X 8.3 that was offered by carrier Verizon, the 8.0 will have a bigger resolution at 1920 x 1200 pixels. On the other hand, the bigger 8.3 Pad X by Verizon had a 1080p Full HD resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels.

As for the camera, the T-Mobile LG G Pad X would have a 5-megapixel main rear camera, with the same 5-megapixel sensor for the front facing snapper. On the other hand, the Verizon LG G Pad X 8.3 featured an 8-megapixel main camera with a 2-megapixel front facing one.

The Verizon G Pad X came with a 4,800mAh battery, whereas the upcoming G Pad X by T-Mobile will only come with a 4,650 mAh one. All other specifications are said to be identical.

The T-Mobile LG G Pad X is expected to go on retail for around $300.
