Perhaps it is an indicator that even major OEMs are getting less enthusiastic about tablets. First, it was Samsung who didn't spend as much hype on the Galaxy Tab S2 as it did on its predecessor. Now, it's LG's turn. The Korean manufacturer silently launched the G Pad II 8.0, clearly a successor to the 2013 and 2014 model that even got a Google Play Edition. Or perhaps LG doesn't want to draw too much attention to this rather strange mid-range slab that bears not a USB Type-C but a full-sized USB port.
