At the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC), Lenovo has announced a new 'Tab 4' tablet series, consisting of Lenovo Tab 4 8, Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus, Lenovo Tab 4 10 and Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. The new tablets come in two different display sizes (8-inch and 10-inch) and are further categorized as standard and Plus variants.
The 8-inch/10-inch standard Tab 4 tablets are powered by Qualcomm MSM8917 (Snapdragon 425) chipset and sport a 1,200x800-pixel resolution display. RAM is 2GB, while storage options include 16 or 32GB. The camera department is handled by a 2MP front unit and a 5MP rear unit.
The Plus variants, on the other hand, are powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC, and sport a 1,920x1,200-pixel resolution IPS display. Available memory configurations include 3GB/16GB and 4GB/64GB. A 5MP camera is on the front and an 8MP camera is on the back. There's a USB 2.0 Type-C port and a fingerprint sensor as well. The Plus variants also feature a dual-glass design.
Both standard as well as Plus versions have stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, run Android Nougat, and come in WiFi+LTE and WiFi-only models.
As for price, the regular 8-inch and 10-inch Tab 4 tablets cost $109 and $149, respectively, while the corresponding Plus variants carry a price tag of $199 and $249, respectively. They'll be launched in May this year.
Lenovo is also offering two separate kits aimed at making these tablets suitable for kids and office. The Kid's Pack includes a protective bumper, 3M stickers for scratch protection, and a blue-light filter.
Buyers will also get Kids Account that'll let users access curated content as well as a kids-safe browser.
The Productivity Pack - aimed at office goers - will let users convert their tablet into a 2-in-1 with a Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad.
Those using this pack will also get a laptop-like experience from their tablet with features like fast app switching and multiple windows support, as well as a taskbar.
There's currently no information on the pricing and availability of these packs.
Finally a 10" ish Landscape tablet, not a lover of the Samsung portrait format tablets.
For around $55, you can get a Nokia 3310 instead......
I concur, the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus especially looks very enticing with good specs for it's $249 price. I also wish Lenovo would revive the Motorola XOOM tablet series.
