Lenovo has launched the Tab M10 Plus, its latest budget. The Tab M10 Plus comes in at under €200 but includes a large battery, fairly thin display bezels and up to 128 GB of storage. The Tab M10 Plus has an 87% screen to body ratio and is just 8.15 mm thick.

Lenovo has introduced another budget tablet, called the Tab M10 Plus. However, the device hardly resembles its namesake, the Tab M10, a tablet that we reviewed at the beginning of last year. Instead, the Tab M10 Plus looks more like the Tab M8 HD, which we tested in January. Consider the Tab M10 Plus a more premium version of the Tab M8 HD.

The Tab M10 Plus comes with a 10.3-inch IPS panel that operates natively at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. Featuring 4 GB of LPDRR4X RAM, the tablet also has 64 GB or 128 GB of storage. An 8 MP rear-facing camera is onboard too, along with a 5 MP front-facing sensor. Powering the device is a MediaTek Helio P22T, a "tablet" version of the entry-level chipset that failed to impress when we tested it in the LG Q60 and Moto E6 Plus. Nonetheless, the Tab M10 Plus should still be powerful enough for all general tasks.

One of the highlights of the Tab M10 Plus is undoubtedly its high screen-to-body ratio, which Lenovo claims is 87%. There is also a USB Type-C port that can charge the tablet's 7,000 mAh battery at up to 10 W. Sadly, the tablet will ship with Android 9.0 Pie, not Android 10.

Additionally, Lenovo will sell Wi-Fi and LTE models, with the 64 GB Wi-Fi model retailing for €199.99 and £199.99. Lenovo is yet to announce pricing for the US, but its product page states that the company will sell the tablet as a Smart Tab bundle with its "smart charging station". Retailers like Costco have already reduced the Tab M10 Plus to £179.89, though.
