Lenovo Tab 4 Series – easy on the budget

Initially announced during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Lenovo is looking like on the cusp of officially announcing the availability of the Tab 4 series of Android tablets in 8 and 10 inch options that will also come with standard and a ‘plus’ version when it hits the market.

Aside from the obvious screen differences at 8 and 10 inches, the Tab 4 8 and the Tab 4 10 will both be packing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM with a base of 16GB of on-board storage with option to expand via a MicroSD card slot. Since Lenovo wants to keep their tablets budget friendly, screen resolutions for either displays will come down a notch at 1,280 x 800 each.

The Tab 4 10 will be carrying an 8MP main camera and 5MP front facing one in contrast to the Tab 4 8 with its 5MP and 2MP version respectively.

The beefier siblings will look and feel much like their standard versions where the Tab 4 8 Plus and the Tab 4 10 Plus will both be upgrading the experience starting from the Full HD resolution displays.

Similarities for the plus versions will come with the 8MP main camera and 5MP selfie shooter to increase your choices amongst the lineup. The bigger siblings will also be rocking Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipsets paired with a generous 4GB of RAM and plenty of base storage at 64GB still with the option to expand via MicroSD.

Some features only present here also come in the form of front-facing speakers for a more immersive experience, and a fingerprint sensor embedded on the power button for the Tab 4 8 Plus and on the home button for the Tab 4 10 Plus.

All of the variants of the 8 inch models will be packing 4,850 mAh batteries, while the 10 inch variants will get 7,000 mAh power packs.

The tablets will be running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with no promises of upgrading the software to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Lenovo has yet to officially announce which of the tablets will be available locally (if they do decide to carry the line in the Philippines) and for how much so stay tuned for that.
