LG’s latest tablet, called the GPad X2 8.0 Plus, has been revealed after a support page was posted for the device on T-Mobile’s website. Probably the most formidable thing about the tablet is its massive optional dock, aptly called the Gpad Pack Plus that’s a stand with stereo speakers, a USB port, and a built-in 4,400mAh battery, according to Android Police. From the specs listed, the device features an 8-inch display with 1080p resolution, 5-megapixel front and rear cameras, 1.4 GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and runs on Android 7.0 (Nougat).

There’s been no word on how much the device costs yet. LG launched the original 8-inch G Pad in 2013, and this model is LG’s return to the series. The GPad X2 8.0 Plus looks comparatively more downmarket than earlier models, though it’s relying on the dock as a point of differentiation. If the earlier G Pad’s launch is any indication for when to expect this one, we can look forward to it becoming official around the IFA technology exhibition in Berlin at the start of next month.
