Lenovo Tab Extreme: New Android tablet arrives with lower than expected launch pricing
Lenovo has quietly started selling the Tab Extreme, a high-end Android tablet that it introduced in January during CES 2023. As we discussed at the time, the Tab Extreme combines a 14.5-inch OLED display with a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset. A 12,300 mAh battery underpins the device, which is just as well considering the display's 3,000 x 1,876-pixel native resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.
Initially, Lenovo stated that it would start selling the Tab Extreme this summer. While that may still be true in Europe, the tablet is already available in the UK and the US. Additionally, the company confirmed its intentions to offer the Tab Extreme for €1,299, making it a direct iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9 competitor. However, UK and US launch pricing implies that a European price cut is incoming.
Currently, Lenovo is offering its high-end tablet for £999 in the UK and US$949.99 in the US. Please note that these prices do not include the keyboard accessory that Lenovo shows in various marketing pictures. Instead, the Tab Extreme will ship with a Folio Case and a Lenovo Pen 3. Lenovo promises to provide 3 OS upgrades for the Tab Extreme, leaving the tablet on Android 16. The company states that it will provide security updates for 4 years too, although it has not confirmed whether this was from when the tablet was first announced or when the tablet became orderable.
