The first generation of the tablet was launched in May last year.
Listed by the model number LGV498, the LG G Pad II 8.0 design is similar to its predecessor. However, the tablet is seen featuring full-size USB port, which can be used to connect with portable drives, keyboards, and gaming controllers, apart from being used to charge other devices as well.
The new tablet comes with a slimmer capacitive stylus with 3.5mm width. Besides a support for an external storage via microSD card (up to 128GB), the LG G Pad II 8.0 houses the company's own LG-QPair 2.0 app, Microsoft Office apps and Quick Memo+ feature among others. The KnockON feature is also included.
