LG G Pad X 8.0 leaks, rumored to launch at T-Mobile in May


Days after the LG G5 started hitting T-Mobile shelves and subscribers hands, a new report claims that a fresh LG tablet is coming soon to T-Mo, too.

VentureBeat says that the LG G Pad X 8.0 will launch at T-Mobile in mid-May for an undisclosed price. Specs for the LG slate are expected to include an 8-inch 1920×1200 display, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 5-megapixel front and rear cameras, and a 4650mAh battery that’ll power the whole package.

One other notable spec that will reportedly be included with the LG G Pad X 8.0 is a full-size USB port, which you could use to do things like transfer files from a USB stick or plug in a keyboard.

While the LG G Pad X 8.0 may not be an extremely high-end tablet, the specs named in today’s leak suggests that it’ll be a nice upgrade over the LG G Pad F 8.0 and a respectable option for folks that want a smaller tablet. If a launch is indeed scheduled for mid-May, it could be a couple of weeks before we hear anything official regarding the G Pad X 8.0, so stay tuned.

    Why would they include a full size type-A USB port (presumably in addition to a micro type-B) when single type-C could handle it all?

      It’s going to be Type A to Type B end, similar to what was included in the Galaxy S7/Edge box, so that your USB type memory sticks and transferring data from iphoney lighting, which has USB type A end is easier.

        I have a Nexus 6P with a single type-c port. I have a type-c to type-a adapter that allows me to connect to any peripheral. Besides transferring files from an iPhone (or any other phone or flash drive), I can charge another phone if necessary.

      I would like to see usb type a @ c.

    ugh, if its coming out for 240 or cheaper I’m gonna be pissed because the G Pad F, while great, has its shortcomings.

  • brybry

    Whats with the budget spec proc? Why aren’t these coming with the Snapdragon 8XX?

  • mreveryphone

    Where are the infinum platinum’s?

  • zx6guy

    That battery could be bigger.

    The g pad f 8.0 is complete garbage. Crashes on me all the time and is so slow due to the lack of ram. Just shut off my line and got an Asus ZenPad 8.0 for $100 and ill use my hotspot from my phone. Already proving to be a more than capable tablet. Way better than the f 8.0. The only thing good about that tablet was the battery life. Not sure I want to get stuck on another LG piece of garbage.

    Nexus 9 $239 right now for HTC hot deals, much better device.

    • TechnoRealz

      Many reports of N9 being a POS from HTC. Laggy, buggy, memeory leaks even on Marshmallow.

        yep. I traded mine in after a week. Pain in the ass to use.

      • George Salcedo

        I heard M made it a brand new device much better. My nexus 7 2013 is still very good so I’m happy for now.

  • FILA

    and yet the 2013 Nexus 7 still holds strong, just hope Google wises up and realizes how many are out here and keeps updating. I doubt, but I can hope

    • taxandspend

      the 2013 Nexus 7 is awesome. Fast, great battery life, fantastic screen even in bright light.

    I want this but as full phone… I’ll figure out how to lug it around… and please don’t mention calling with alternative services.
