Last week Twitter tipster @evleaks claimed LG’s G Pad 8.3 was headed to Verizon, and today the rumor picked up a bit more steam. A recent FCC filing details a variant of the Android tablet sporting the frequency bands used for the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
The FCC doesn’t reveal much else beyond the confirming Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS support, but we imagine the Verizon tablet will sport the same design and specs as LG’s original model. The G Pad comes equipped with an 8.3-inch 1200 x 1920-pixel display, a Snapdragon 600 processor, a 4600mAh battery, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with microSD support, and runs Android 4.2.2 out of the box.
There’s no word on when the G Pad will land on Verizon’s 4G network or its price. Hopefully the LTE-enabled model won’t cost much more than the $300 LG charges for the Wi-Fi only model, though it’s also possible the carrier will subsidize the device when you sign into a two-year contract.
