Tablets are increasingly seen a sharp rise in their demands and companies all over the world are trying to dominate the smartphone markets. Lenovo has also been able to attract a significant number of customers too. It's not the first time Lenovo has launched a tablet and its previous devices have worked well in markets too. Adding another one to its queue, Lenovo, will be recently launching its Lenovo Tab 4 8.0 in the coming months. This tablet will offer a range of features and would offer a high value for money.
The tablet seems to have an eye catching design and looks well. The power button seems to be provided on the right edge of the tablet and the volume rocker seems to be provided on the left side, while the 3.5mm audio jack is provided on the top. The tablet looks quite impressive from the back panel and certainly catches the user’s eyes. The external dimensions of the tablet are 211 x 124 x 8.2 mm (8.31 x 4.88 x 0.32 in) and weighs 310 grams, which is slightly more compared to the other devices present in its price range. The tablet is available in two color variants i.e. Black and White. An 8.0-inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has been provided in the tablet that provides a screen resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels. The 189 ppi rich screen will turn out to be decent. As the display is large the pixel density will get lower, however, the screen shall look bright enough. Of course, one cannot compare the display to the iPads, however, in its price segment the display shall turn out to be decent.
The tablet will feature a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 processor that will be backed by a Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 chipset. The processor will turn out to be competent enough to provide a seamless experience. There might be a little lag or stutter observed while performing heavy multi-tasking on it. The Adreno 306 GPU shall work well and light games and videos will be played without any problem. The internal storage provided in the tablet is expected to be 16GB, while the memory can be expanded up to 128GB using the microSD card slot provided in the tablet. A 2GB of RAM will be provided in that tablet, which will be enough for all the power needs of the tablet. The tablet will run on Android Operating System, that too on version 6.0 i.e. Marshmallow. The tablet will not supports SIMs, as it's a Wi-Fi only version.
The tablet will feature an 8MP primary camera that will be supported by autofocus, but will not be backed by an LED flashlight. The front shooter will feature a 2MP camera. The primary camera will be backed by additional features like Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama. Video recording is done by the camera. The camera will work decent enough and the images captured by it would be average. The rear camera might capture few decent pics, but then again, one might have to capture several images to get the desired results. Low light photography is expected to suffer the most, as a lot of noise might creep in the photographs. The front shooter can also be used for video calling, as the images captured by it might not be that great. The loudspeaker provided in the tablet is expected to turn out to be impressive. A 3.5 mm audio jack is also provided in the tablet.
The tab will come with a Non-removable Li-Ion 4850 mAh battery that would easily work for a day with moderate to heavy usage. The battery is not expected to support wireless charging or fast battery charging. The connectivity options will include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.2, A2DP, LE, A-GPS, FM radio and microUSB version 2.0. The sensors that will be included in the the tablets are accelerometer and proximity.
