Today, Lenovo announced its most powerful Android tablet to date. The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro features a 2,560 x 1,600 11.5-inch OLED display that supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. Lenovo bills it as a product that is meant for ‘productivity on the go.’ At its heart is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC (System on Chip).
The gaming focused SoC was released last year alongside the Snapdragon 665 and Snapdragon 730. All of these chips promise flagship performance at mid-range price-points. The power efficiency provided by the Snapdragon 730G enables the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro to run for a whopping 15 hours on a single charge. That figure, of course, depends on how the tablet is used.
Lenovo’s new professionally oriented tablet will include Microsoft’s Office suite and will have an optional pen and keyboard. A first for tablets, the Lenovo Tab P11 pro has four JBL speakers that are optimized by Dolby Atmos sound. It’s also got some built-in algorithms that help emulate surround south using the four user-facing speakers. This will be appreciated by those that heavily use their tablets for media consumption. Other features include background blurring (for privacy on video calls) and face unlock.
The P11 pro was not Lenovo’s only announcement. The Chinese company also introduced a new line of tablets called the Tab M10 HD Gen 2. These devices will serve as a device for Kids. Google had designed a a kids mode into Android 10 and up, and will recommend underage users various books. videos, apps, and games based on their interests. Kids Space also features a ‘Play and Read’ tab that will show teacher-approved apps and popular children’s books that are free. The ‘Watch and Make’ tab shows videos from YouTube Kids. The tablet, of course, will include Google’s Family Link parental controls.
Expect the Lenovo Tab M10 HD Gen 2 to be available in September 2020 starting at around $130 US. The higher-end Lenovo Tab P11 Pro show up some time in November 2020 starting at $499.
