LG might be getting back into tablets with the G Pad 5

14 September 2019
However, the leaks do mention a pretty outdated Snapdragon 821 chipset, which is rather odd.

Sort by:

An 821 would be fine if it is cooled well and is paired with a decent battery. LG G6 with an 821 gets way too hot and drains battery fast

855, 15 Sep 2019Better use the sd835 instead of sd821It's indeed better, but will be more expensive.

Sd 821 is still capable enough. Considering even for their big screen, tablet tend to use slower chipset (or maybe it was me who buy cheap android tablet).

Will never buy an Asus tablet again. I have the Z500M, and it's still on Android 7, no planned upgrades, still a WiFi bug that forces you to manually turn on WiFi every time you want to use the tablet, and turn off when you don't use it - otherwise it will drain your battery. Not a single security update since 6months after release of the tablet. No alternative ROMs either because of the SoC they use. iPad Pro for me next time.

Just make a 8" phone and sell it, people will buy it since they love big phones they can also use as tablets! XD (not practical tough it seems elder people like bigger to see better or something I dunno)

Funny meh.
LG dont forget to add android lollypop or Mashmallow.

Hope it is true, there is not so many tablets brands on the market, but also I am waiting for sonny's comeback.

First MediaTek in midrange phone, then SD821 in a 2019 tablet? What's LG smoking recently? They're desperatley trying to save a buck while being expensive...

Why did LG come back to tablets when it can't even make a smartphone right? Just why?

Reference to the SD 821 could be a mistake, I mean sourcecode could be copied and pasted then changed. It might get changed when an actual chip is decided to be at the helm.

Lg should just use sd835 and price it really low and mayb just mayb the'll actually b able to sell some units

When has any standard tablet EVER had a powerful chipset; unless they were trying to compete with an ipad?
