Samsung-Galaxy-Note-Pro-12.2We’ve known for a while Verizon-branded 4G LTE-enabled versions of Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and LG’s G Pad 8.3 are in the works, and we may have just found out when they’ll debut. Assuming the internal Big Red document Android Police dug up is legit, the two tabs will roll out on March 6, i.e. next Thursday.

Decent, nay excellent turnaround for the GNote Pro, announced at CES back in January, and launched in Wi-Fi flavors in Europe and stateside soon after. But we can’t say the same about the G Pad, which LG first unveiled in September 2013, and released in October.

Still, if Verizon prices it right, it could make waves. It’s nowhere near retirement, as it comes with a vibrant 1,920 x 1,200 pix res display, quad-core Snapdragon 600 chip and 2 GB RAM in tow. Also, it pretty much rips off G2’s design language. In a good way. Too bad it runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

As for the Note Pro, if you’re considering an LTE purchase, you may want to start saving up. A Wi-Fi model costs no less than $750, so don’t be surprised if the 4G variant shall go for a cool gee. Then again, it might be a tad cheaper with 24-month contracts.

And if you can afford it, it’s clearly worth all that dough, as it sports 2,560 x 1,600 pix screen resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 800 power, 3 GB RAM, S Pen functionality and sweet Android 4.4 KitKat smoothness.
