MWC 2017 | Lenovo Tab 4 coming this May for as low as $109 USD
Unlike the Lenovo Miix series of Windows tablets, the Lenovo Tab series consists of mainstream Android tablets with more attractive designs and more powerful hardware underneath. The manufacturer is expanding the Tab 4 series with four budget tablet SKUs just in time for MWC 2017.
Two of the four new models are the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 8 Plus 8-inch tablets. The Tab 4 8 Plus version will include a fingerprint sensor, a Snapdragon 625 SoC, and a FHD display whereas the standard Tab 4 8 will make do with slightly weaker hardware. WLAN-only and WWAN/LTE-capable SKUs are also available. Otherwise, users can expect the usual 3.5 mm audio jack and MicroSD slot on each of these SKUs.
The last two models are the Tab 4 10 and Tab 4 10 Plus 10-inch tablets. Specifications are nearly identical to the Tab 4 8 and Tab 4 8 Plus, respectively, save for the physically larger screens and sizes of the units. Optional extras include a Kid's Pack with shock-resistant bumpers and a Productivity Pack with a Bluetooth keyboard. The same WLAN and WWAN/LTE options apply here as well.
The Tab 4 8, Tab 4 8 Plus, Tab 4 10, and Tab 4 10 Plus will start at $109, $199, $149, and $249, respectively, when they all launch simultaneously this May. Lenovo appears to be pricing the new tablets directly against the successful Amazon Fire series. The Miix 320 detachable and Yoga 720 convertibles will launch one month earlier than the refreshed Tab series.
