Lenovo Tab M10 (3rd Gen) leaks with a 1200p display, Android 11 and a strange quad-core SoC
The Google Play Console has thrown up a new edition of the Lenovo Tab M10, currently on its second generation. Supposedly, the third generation model runs Android 11 and features a 1200p display, both upgrades on the Android 10 and 800p-touting Tab M10 (2nd Gen). The listing shows a generic-looking image for the Tab M10 (3rd Gen) too, reproduced above.
Unfortunately, the listing does not provide any further details about the tablet's battery capacity, nor its cameras, ports or storage. However, it claims that Lenovo has opted for the Socionext SC1408J1, a quad-core SoC with two ARM Cortex-A72 cores and two Cortex-A53 cores. Additionally, the SoC contains a Mali-T820 MP3 GPU. Socionext will probably be an unfamiliar name for smartphone and tablet enthusiasts, but Liliputing notes that the company produces SoCs for several smart TVs.
Incidentally, Liliputing has discovered the Tab M10 (3rd Gen) in Google's Android zero-touch enrollment developer documentation, albeit as its TB328FU model number. Unfortunately, it is unclear when Lenovo will release the Tab M10 (3rd Gen), nor how much it will cost.
