MWC 2022 | Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen): Budget Android tablet released with MediaTek Helio G80 or Snapdragon 680 4G chipsets
Lenovo has unleashed the Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen), a 251.2 x 158.8 x 7.45 mm tablet that weighs approximately 465 g. Equipped with a 10.61-inch IPS display, the tablet offers a 2,000 x 1,200-pixel native resolution, a 60 Hz refresh rate and 400 nits of peak brightness. Lenovo surrounds the large display with relatively thin bezels, within which it hides an 8 MP front-facing camera with a fixed focus. Additionally, the Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen) has an 8 MP rear-facing camera that supports autofocus.
Moreover, Lenovo equips the tablet with a 7,700 mAh battery capable of being recharged at 20 W. Supposedly, the battery should yield up to 12 hours of video playback, 14 hours of web browsing and 60 hours of music playback. For some reason, Lenovo has elected against including a fingerprint reader. However, the tablet has expandable storage and nano-SIM capabilities.
Incidentally, Lenovo offers the Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen) with two SoCs. According to its specification sheet, the tablet starts with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, but only if you choose a MediaTek Helio G80. Also, MediaTek SKUs will only be available with up to 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Alternatively, the Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen) relies on a Snapdragon 680 4G that Lenovo complements with 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of storage.
The Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen) will be orderable from April starting at €249, a price that includes a Type-C charging cable and a 5V/2A power adapter. Lenovo has created a Folio Case too, and claims that the tablet is compatible with its Precision Pen 2. For reference, the Android 12 tablet will be available in Frost Blue or Storm Grey.
