LG has unveiled a new budget tablet in the US. It called the LG G Pad F2 8.0 and will be available for sale exclusively through Sprint. The South Korean OEM is yet to reveal plans regarding the global rollout of the tablet.
The all-new tablet is a part of LG’s budget G Pad lineup. It comes in a polycarbonate body that bears an LG logo and a pogo pin on the back for connecting the battery pack accessory.
