LG has been out of the smartphone market for over a year now, but it still offers some new tablet models. This is the case of the Ultra Tab, a device that has just been presented by the brand, with intermediate specifications and a focus on productivity tasks.
The product has a very discreet look, with a smooth back cover and only a rear camera located near the corner of the structure. On the front, the tablet has symmetrical edges around the screen, while the positioning of the camera suggests using the device in landscape mode — that is, horizontally.
The LG Ultra Tab has a 10-inch IPS LCD screen with a WUXGA+ resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels. In addition to the traditional touchscreen, there is still support for use with Wacom pens, those typical for graphics tablets.
The tablet’s performance suite is led by a Snapdragon 680 processor, Qualcomm’s octa-core CPU at clocks of up to 2.4 GHz. It also has 4GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a micro SD card.
Its single rear camera has an 8 MP sensor, while a 5 MP component is responsible for selfies and video calls, among other functions. The tablet still has a 27.1 Wh battery — the exact capacity in mAh was not revealed — and a 16.2 W charger comes with the product in the box.
The construction of the LG Ultra Tab is military certified MIL-STD 810G, which guarantees greater resistance against drops, humidity and extreme temperatures. In practice, this means that it can be used by children, with less risk of physical damage, for example.
It also supports wireless connectivity via Bluetooth 5.1, which can be used to pair the protective cover with the keyboard — the accessory also comes with the product in the box.
Price and availability
LG’s new tablet was presented to consumers in South Korea, and no information about sales in other countries has been released so far. Its official price is 462,000 won, which can be converted to around R$1,835 without adding extra taxes.
