Just yesterday we learned LG will follow up last year’s G Pad 8.3 with three new tablets coming in at 7, 8 and 10.1-inches, and today we’re getting a peek under the hood of the smallest new model. An AnTuTu benchmark for the LG G Pad 7 reveals it’s packed with mid-range specs, suggesting it will take on other low-cost Android slates in the $200 price range.

The G Pad 7 will apparently come equipped with a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a 7-inch 1280 x 800-pixel display, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. On the plus side, it runs the latest version of Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS. We’re still waiting to hear about battery life and price, though based on these specs the 7-inch slate probably won’t be too expensive.

With the 7-inch G Pad allegedly laid bare we’re still curious to see how LG’s upcoming 8 and 10.1-inch tablets will compare. Hopefully the larger models will come with more powerful specs, though the South Korean company could also take the opposite strategy and a cheaper 10.1-inch tablet might be a big hit with budget-minded shoppers. LG’s already confirmed the devices are incoming, so hopefully we won’t need to wait much longer to get the official specs for all three models.
