LG Tablet Bound for Verizon Clears FCC; Looks like the G Pad 8.3

January 27, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you have the habit of trusting leaks, you might have come across one that had hinted at a new LG device getting ready for launch.

In fact the leak surfaced thanks to efforts by @evleaks to bring the info to the fore. What the folks over there had told us was that the LG G Pad 8.3 is on its way to the Verizon network in a few days time.

It now looks like the info is true and trustworthy. FCC documents have revealed a device that looks similar to what the leak showed us. The new upcoming device is of course an LG creation too.


Going by the documents, a tablet sporting model number VK810 has passed FCC scrutiny with support for the LTE bands 4 and 13. These are bands supported by Verizon, in case you aren’t aware.

The device thus appears to be the LG G Pad 8.3, and might come flaunting the same dimensions and size as the predecessor model.

The specs are still under wraps, but on closer look it looks like the device might come with 8.3 inches of screen real estate that sports 1920 x 1200 pixels.

The tablet is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 600 chipset that clocks a speed of 1.7GHz. Other ingredients could be an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a a fairly commendable 4,600 mAh battery set.

The imaging department is likely to show off a a 5 megapixel rear camera for photos and videos and a  1.3MP front-facing shooter. The Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS powered rig would support WiFi and Bluetooth LE.

We just need to wait for LG and Verizon to confirm the arrival. Let’s wait, right?
