MWC 2017: Lenovo Intros Family-Friendly Tab 4 Range Of Tablets

At MWC 2017, Lenovo announced the arrival of a number of new tablets which collectively form the Lenovo Tab 4 family, This range comprises of four specific models, the Lenovo Tab 4 8, the Lenovo Tab 4 10, the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus, and the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. In addition to being a family of tablets, it seems that Lenovo is aiming these at the family, by accounting for different members of the family. For instance, those who want more of a premium entertainment device, as well as those who simply want a reliable tablet for children.

The Lenovo Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 8 Plus are the smaller tablets and both come with an 8-inch display. However, the resolution of the display differs between the Plus and non-Plus versions. The Lenovo Tab 4 8 comes with an 1280 x 800 IPS display, while the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus comes equipped with a 1920 x 1200 IPS display. Likewise, there is a difference between their internals as well. The Lenovo Tab 4 8 comes loaded with 2GB RAM, will be available in both 16GB and 32GB internal storage variants, and comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor (clocking at 1.4 GHz). In contrast, the Tab 4 8 Plus comes equipped in two distinct variants, one with 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage and the other with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Both versions of the Tab 8 Plus come powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor (clocking at 2.0 GHz). In the camera department, the Lenovo Tab 4 8 packs in a 5-megapixel rear camera, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, while the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus comes loaded with an 8-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Both the Lenovo Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 8 Plus are equipped with 2 speakers with Dolby Atmos support, both come with a microSD card for additional storage, and a 3.5 mm audio jack port. Although the Plus model does come sporting a fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port as well. Both versions are powered by the same 4,850 mAh battery and both are scheduled to arrive running on Android 7.0 (Nougat).

Moving on to the Lenovo Tab 10 and Tab 10 Plus and most of the similarities and differences are the same as what with the 8-inch versions. So besides seeing the upgrade in size to a 10.1-inch display, the Lenovo Tab 10 comes with a 1280 x 800 resolution, while the Lenovo Tab 10 Plus comes with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. Likewise, the internal differences are the same with the Lenovo Tab 10 packed with 2GB RAM, 16GB (or 32GB) internal storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, as well as the same 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera configuration. While the Tab 10 Plus comes equipped with the same 3GB RAM with 16GB internal storage or 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, and 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Likewise, most of the rest of the specs are the same as the 8-inch models, so both variants come with the same speakers and additional ports, while the Tab 10 Plus also comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor and USB Type-C connectivity. However, while the operating system in play on both Tab 10 models is once again Android 7.0 (Nougat), the batteries have been boosted up to 7,000 mAh.

Beyond the actual tablets, Lenovo has also announced they will be making available a kids case which comes with a number of specific kid-friendly features including scratch protective stickers, an eye protecting blue light filter, and a shock resistant bumper. While for those looking to be more productive, a 10-inch keyboard case will also become available which comes equipped with a Bluetooth keyboard, can act as a stand, and provides an additional degree of protection. In terms of pricing and availability, Lenovo has confirmed that the Lenovo Tab 4 8 will be available to buy starting from $109 and the Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus price will start from $199. While the larger Lenovo Tab 4 10 price starts at $149 and the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus will be available to buy from $249. All of the new Tab 4 tablets are due to become available in May of this year, although specific dates or regional availability have yet to be announced.
