LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus is a new Android tablet coming to T-Mobile, support site shows


More than two years after the LG G Pad X 8.0 launched at T-Mobile, it looks like a new G Pad X model is coming to T-Mo.

T-Mobile’s support site — which recently revealed the T-Mobile Revvl early — is showing the unannounced LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus. This includes several images of the Android tablet as well as its spec details.

The LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus will feature Android 7.0 on an 8-inch 1920×1200 display, according to T-Mobile, along with 5-megapixel front and rear cameras. Also said to be included is an octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a microSD slot.


Perhaps the most interesting feature of the LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus is actually an accessory for the device. The images posted by T-Mobile include a dock accessory with a kickstand that you can attach to the tablet and then prop it up. This accessory is rumored to be called the G Pad Plus Pack and may also include a 4400mAh battery, which wouldn’t be a surprise considering how thick it looks in T-Mo’s images.

Also said to be included with this G Pad Plus Pack are stereo speakers and a full-size USB port.

There’s no word on when the LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus will launch or how much it’ll cost when it does, but considering that it’s now on T-Mobile’s support site, a release seems imminent. While it may not be the most high-end tablet around, the GPad X2 8.0 Plus does have additional storage and that G Pad Plus Pack looks like a pretty interesting accessory. Plus, it’s not like we see a ton of new Android tablets released nowadays, so folks that want a new Android tablet with built-in cellular connectivity may want to give this LG GPad X2 8.0 Plus a look.

    Remove bezels, add calling to this thing and i’ll ditch both my phone and tablet for it.

      Add the T-mobile digits app and you can use any internet connected device for calling and texting.

        Except, being a beaucoup data user- I’d pay more n get less, slower data.

    I regret buying two Samsung Tab E8 devices instead of the LG Gpad X8. The original LG Gpad Is superior in every way and has already been updated to nougat where as my Samsung tablets are slow and not updated.

  • George Salcedo

    I have the original LG Gpad X8 and it runs great with updates very often. As for my Samsung tab E8 devices they stink and are still on 6.0

  • Brandon Robinson

    any clue on when they will be getting the tab s3…i cant find any details anywhere and customer service is clueless

  • tenthbowl

    Have the original Gpad X and it’s a great tablet, but I was hoping they would up the RAM the next version to at least 3GB. Also I hope they keep the full size USB port, best feature by far.

    • Timothy Poplaski

      They did boost the storage, from 8GB to 32GB. I’m always running low on my X. (I do have apps moved to the SD card where possible.)

  • SirMakoto

    still only 2gb ram? isn’t the current one 2gb as well? i’ll pick this up if they would offer it for free after bill credits or rebate just like how i got the G pad X. i need something to make use of my free MI line.

    wish they would come with window 10 tablet. That would be great on Tmo part. I din’t say phone I said tablet. If Tmo can sell the Ipad pro why not a surface?

    • Timothy Poplaski

      If you can find one, the 10″ Surface 3 (not Pro 3) supports T-Mobile. I’m quite happy with mine.

      • Bklynman

        Thanks for the tip. Ebay and Swappa here I come.

          Just make sure it’s an LTE model :) Personally I wouldn’t get any less than what I have, 4GB memory, 128GB storage. While Windows can certainly work with less, the extra memory helps a lot with performance and 128GB saves you from having to micromanage apps and files.

          T-Mo’s $20/mo unlimited data Tablet plan works with it.

          Really a shame Microsoft decided to not put out a sequel and hasn’t added LTE to the other Surface devices. (For the cost of the damn things, LTE should be a min spec default.)

        • Bklynman

          Yes it should be,MS,should have unlock Surfaces so it could take any sim card just like the Ipads unless I am wrong about the Ipads.

        • Timothy Poplaski

          The Surface 3 (small iPad sized one, not the bigger Pro) is unlocked. (The LTE models, obviously not the WiFi ones :) .)
