LG Electronics on 3 July, 2017 released a new light tablet PC which supports the long-term evolution (LTE) network connectivity and offers improved portability.

The South Korean tech giant said the 290-gram G Pad IV 8.0 FHD LTE can be considered "as light as a can of soda," making the device especially suitable for women and teenagers, Yonhap news agency reported.

The company said the 8-inch display also makes it easier for users to carry the product in hand bags and pockets. The tablet PC comes with two cameras, both with 5-megapixel resolution. The battery capacity stands at 3,000 mAh.

The 16:10 ratio display, which supports Full HD content, allows users to better enjoy videos, LG added. Users can also enjoy fast data speed and phone calls as the tablet PC runs on the LTE network. The price tag on the device stands at 352,000 won ($308), and can be purchased at local retail stores of LG Uplus Corp., a mobile carrier under LG Group.

This comes after it was announced that the LG V30 is rumored to be announced one day before the IFA which is going to be held from 1-6 September in Berlin. The LG V30 is going to be launched in 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants. The phone is expected to be loaded with a Snapdragon 835 and a 5.7-inch OLED panel display.
