It has been two years since LG unveiled the Optimus Pad with lukewarm reception. The South Korean company is done licking its wounds and is ready to get into the tablet war one again with the LG G Pad 8.3.

As its name suggests, the new LG tablet sports an 8.3-inch display with 1920 x 1200 for 273 pixels per inch resolution and is 8.3mm thin. It also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset, which includes a quad-core 1.7GHz Krait 300 CPU, 2GB of LDDR2 RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.

The LG G Pad 8.3 also comes with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front shooter, a 4,600 mAh battery, and pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It weighs 338 grams and will be available in white and black.

On the software side, this tablet has LG’s Knock On, which enables users to turn on the display without having to press the power button; as well as the QSlide that allows the device to run three apps on the screen at the same time; and the QPair, which pairs the tablet with any Jelly Bean-powered smartphone, enabling the user to receive messages and phone calls straight to the G Pad.

The LG G Pad 8.3 will be available in North America, Europe, and Asia within the fourth quarter. No word yet how much it will cost.
