Android tablets are a dying breed and LG is doing its best to beat that fact into our heads. The South Korean company is apparently set to release a new tablet, the G Pad 5. It will feature a 10.1-inch display, LTE support, and rather bizarrely, a Snapdragon 821.

They are definitely getting a huge discount on these old chips.

IIRC 820 and 821 were notoriously inefficient, I'd be surprised if these were still in production. Only getting rid of old stock makes sense.

Haha, I'm surprised anyone noticed.  ;D

Yeah, I'm back now. Thanks.

This is the tablet I'm waiting for. Chipset strong enough for gaming packed into a cheap tablet - although snapdragon 730 or mediatek G90T would have been the optimal.

You might be thinking of the dismal 810 - the 820 and 821 were something of a return to form, as they benefited from both the significant improvement of the A73 over the A57, and the shrink from the terrible 20nm planar node to 14nm FinFET.

They could be old stock - I wouldn't be surprised if they were still producing these to use up 14nm production lines, though, as they're producing very high yields now and the big players are moving to 7nm.

Either way, definitely a cost thing.

Yeah, my bad, I realized a few hours later.
