Android tablets are no longer sold as much as before. This results in manufacturers waiting longer to release a successor. The last LG G Pad was announced over two years ago, the G Pad 4 had an 8.0-inch Android tablet with a Full HD display. It seems that this middle-class tablet will soon have a successor in the form of an LG G Pad 5.

On September 17, 2019, LG Electronics applied for a trademark from the USPTO (the United States Patent and Trademark Office) for the G Pad 5 brand name. The application has now also been included in the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) database. The trademark is classified as Class 9, with the description; ‘handy electronic devices; tablet computers; computer; electronic notepad.

LG G Pad 5 specifications

The first specifications were published online last week. XDA Developers revealed that this tablet is under development, codenamed LM-T600L. The display is enlarged to 10.1 inches, the resolution remains the same. The chipset is also being improved. Although it is a three-year-old processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage memory delivers reasonable performance. Certainly compared to the Snapdragon 435 chipset used by its predecessor.

Furthermore, a fingerprint scanner will be present, this was not yet the case with its predecessor. The tablet PC runs on the Android 9 Pie operating system. Naturally, support is provided for 4G LTE internet. NFC will not be supported by the LG G Pad 5.

Furthermore, a leaked product render shows that LG’s new portable computer will have a single front camera. No information is yet known about the resolution. You can see that the Android tablet has a rounded housing, the screen itself is not rounded.

Now that LG has applied for the trademark in both America and Europe, it seems obvious that the G Pad 5 for 2020 will be officially introduced. No information is currently known about the price. Its predecessor received a suggested retail price of around € 300. Given the LG G Pad 5 specifications, it is obvious that this tablet will receive a comparable mid-range price tag.
