The LG G Pad has some pretty impressive figures to boast about. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.7MHz quad core processor and feature 2GB of RAM so it should ably cope with just about any app and game you can throw at it.
In order to really enjoy some of the best HD games, of course, you need the screen to match the processor power. The G Pad boasts being the first 8 inch tablet to feature a full HD screen and it has a resolution of 1,900 x 1,200 pixels and a pixel density of 273ppi so is slightly above the 264ppi offered by Apple Retina displays.
Buyers will also get 16GB of internal storage along with a 5mp rear camera and a 1.3mp front camera. To power what may turn out to be a hungry beast is a 4,600mAH battery.
Running Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 overlayed with the new UX custom interface. Features of the interface have been optimised for use on large screen tablets and it will be possible to pair the tablet with a smartphone and then enjoy call and messaging features directly from the tablet itself.
Acer are also expected to launch a world’s first during the IFA show, although they may have to get in early if they want to make sure of this status.
They have revealed that the new Liquid S2 is the first smartphone that will record video in the new 4k Ultra-HD format, which means that consumers that have spent a small fortune on buying an ultra HD capable TV will have something to watch on it, albeit only home movies filmed at the pub.
IFA is the world’s largest electronics show and it starts at the end of this week. There’s always a trend or two to spot and Ultra HD may well feature from a number of companies.
Manufacturers including Sony, Samsung, and Panasonic have scheduled press releases between the 4th and the 11th of the month so while the S2 may be the first to announce that it will offer 4k recording, it may not be the one to hold the title for offering the first release of a phone with these capabilities.
