As phones go above the 7-inch mark, the popularity of tablets dropped vertiginously. However, there still seems to be a market for them, otherwise Lenovo would not have announced 5 new budget tablets in one go.
The highlight of the new Lenovo tablets line-up is definitely the Lenovo Tab E7, which ships with Android One and will go for just $70 starting in October.
Of course, that amount won’t be bringing you amazing specs or a pleasing design like the one above but, for the price range, it’ll have to do the trick.
The Tab E7 has a MediaTek MT8167 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage expandable via MicroSD. The 7 inch-display sports a 1,024 x 600 resolution and is powered by a 2,750 mAh battery. The rest of the specs sheet is completed with a 2 MP rear camera and a 0.2 front camera.
For $30 more, Lenovo Tab E8 is the next in line, keeping the RAM and storage but bringing a few upgrades. The MediaTek MT8163B processor will provide some browsing power, the screen goes up to 1,280 x 800 px and there’s a larger, 4,850 mAh battery. The cameras provide more as well, with the back one at 5 MP and the front one at 2 MP. Unlike its smaller sibling, the Tab E7, the Tab E8 is already available in store.Also read: ✍Intelligent and Entertaining: The Lenovo Smart Display✍
Want to spend another $30 for better specs?
Lenovo will launch in October the Tab E10 with a 10.1-inch, 1,280 x 800 display and 2 GB of RAM. Fortunately, the chipset, while still entry-level, was upgraded as well. Under the hood you’ll find the Snapdragon 210 processor.
Moving on to something a bit more mid-range, Lenovo proposes two other tablets powered by Snapdragon processors, though you’ll have to wait until “this winter” for the launch and a while longer for the pricing. Meet the Lnovo Tab M-Series.
The Lenovo Tab M10 pairs a Snapdragon 450 processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 px screen will definitely make it a better option for video watching but don’t expect too much on the video calling front. The Tab M10 has the same 5 MP rear camera and 2 MP front camera as the Tab E8.
The most powerful of Lenovo’s new tablets is the Lenovo Tab P10, also available in white. It keeps the Snapdragon 450 processor but upgrades to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It also features an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera and sports a 7.000 mAh battery, so it should be a device up to standard multi-tasking.
