LG Electronics today announced the G Pad 8.3, which will debut at IFA 2013 next week.

As the latest member of the G series lineup of premium mobile devices, the G Pad 8.3 is the first 8-inch tablet to sport a Full-HD (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) display. Despite its display size, the G Pad 8.3 manages to squeeze in a large battery (4,600mAh) in a rather sleek (8.3mm) and light (338g) chassis. 

Running under the hood is Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB RAM, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and 16GB internal storage. The tablet also comes with unique software features such as the QPair app, which pair the tablet with any Android smartphone (preferably running on Android Jelly Bean) to receive calls and reply messages. 

The G Pad 8.3 enables multitasking via Slide Aside, where you slide active apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe, and QSlide where up to three different apps can be controlled in one window. You can also tap on the screen twice to turn it on or off.
