Verizon Might Introduce Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and LG G Pad 8.3 with 4G LTE this Week

LTE-enabled versions of Samsung’s new super-size tablet and LG’s latest mid-range model might launch from Verizon in just a few days.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) with Verizon 4G LTEThere have already been rumors that the telecom is going to release these in the near future, and now, according to an internal document that was leaked to Android Police, it’s known that both the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and LG G Pad 8.3 are going to debut from Big Red on Thursday, March 6.

Apparently, the main difference between these and the WiFi-only versions that are already available is the addition of support for 4G LTE, giving them nearly ubiquitious high-speed access to the internet. This will increase their prices, but those willing to sign a service contract with Verizon will doubtless qualify for a reduction in the purchase cost.

Fast Work? 

Verizon is typically very slow to approve devices for use on its network — it only recently introduced a version of last summer’s Google Nexus 7, for example.

The WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 debuted just last month, so if the telecom really does release its version this week, it will mean this telecom approved it much more quickly than usual. The WiFi-only G Pad 8.3 launched late last year, so Verizon bringing its version out now is more in-line with how long the approval process usually takes.

Big Red already offers a range of other LTE-enabled tablets, including the Apple iPad Air and iPad mini, and the Verizon Ellipis 7
