LG G Pad 8.3 tablet may get a dose of 4G LTE

A new FCC filing hints that the 8.3-inch tablet could move beyond its Wi-Fi roots by hopping onto Verizon's high-speed network.

LG could be prepping a 4G LTE version of its G Pad 8.3 tablet .

A series of Federal Communications Commission documents posted Thursday describe an LG tablet with the model name VK810. Though the name G Pad doesn't appear, the device listed by the FCC matches the dimensions of the current 8.3-inch model, according to PhoneArena.

The FCC files further point to support for the frequency bands used on Verizon's 4G LTE network. Beyond the inclusion of Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth LE, no other hardware specs were revealed. Last week, known and usually reliable leaker @evleaks tweeted that the LG G Pad is headed to Verizon.

Starting at $300, the current LG G Pad 8.3 offers a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 1,920x1,200-pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3MP camera on the front.
